Nintendo Minute Takes On Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Battle Modes

Nintendo Minute comes live to you from PAX East in this week’s episode, with Nintendo of America’s Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang playing the new Battle Modes in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with those in the audience.

Kit and Krysta firstly share the screenshots that they have captured while playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, asking attendees which are their favourites.

Then, they move on to play the Battle Modes in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. First up is Renegade Roundup, a brand new cops and robbers-style mode where players are split into two teams. Then we move on to the explosive Bob-omb Blast mode, the collectathon Coin Runners mode that makes a return from Mario Kart Wii, and Shine Thief, where players will battle to keep a Shine Sprite in their possession.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch worldwide on April 28th.

  1. Is there a classic Balloon Battle mode included in the game at release? i.e. All items in the game, and not bombs?
