It’s now more difficult for players to float downwards when Smart Steering is turned on, Blue Shells won’t hit the player in second place, and the invulnerability period has been extended after spinning out or crashing.

Nintendo has also added the changes made to Online Play in Version 1.2.1 to Wireless Play and LAN Play.

  1. I shall not be having a Switch myself until a NEW Mario Kart for it is announced with 16 New Nitro and Retro Tracks. Seeing a new Mario Kart game on each and every system has been great, one of my Favourite Franchises, ports probably wouldn’t apply to the one game per system routine, and next Mario Kart Games don’t release more than 3 Years after the previous.
