FC Barcelona has revealed their newfound love for Nintendo Switch, as worldwide interest continues to swirl around the portable home console.
Andrés Iniesta, the team’s central midfielder, shared a snap as they travelled to play a match against Las Palmas, which shows that they were killing time on their journey by racing against each other in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
The kart racer has proven popular since release, seeing Nintendo top the UK software charts for the first time since Pokémon White, and becoming the fastest-selling game in the series across the United States.
We enjoyed the chance to hurl Red Shells at our opponents again, concluding in our review: “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe captures that rare magic, an unbeatable experience with friends and family that perfectly demonstrates how the concept that has driven Nintendo Switch is a complete game changer. Thundering over the finish line, that helps this to effortlessly rank as the best Mario Kart game ever made.”
