Nintendo has released a new software update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, that sees the Nintendo Switch exclusive kart racer now on version 1.5.0.

This, as Nintendo announced earlier today, will let you use the Toy-Con Motorbike from the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01 Variety Kit to speed your way around the tracks.

There are also a few bugs that have been addressed, and, as always, you will need to download this update to be able to race against others online.
