GameStop restocking Switch in-store as early as today

Nintendo added a unusual limitation to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when playing it in the two-player Wireless Play mode.

Nintendo Switch stock problems in the United Kingdom appear to be under control, with multiple stores now frequently seeing replenished supplies on a weekly basis. The multi-player game can be played anywhere starting from your TV.

It's time to get your finances in order, Nintendo fans, because the day you've been waiting for is nearly upon us.

"If Nintendo Switch and/or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is on a customer's gaming wish list, I would strongly suggest they plan to come to our stores as soon as they can".

If you know other people with the Nintendo Switch, those consoles can be linked.

The mobile unit slides inside the Switch docking station, where it also gets charged. Supply of Nintendo Switch consoles hasn't stabilized yet, and with one more console slated for launch this year - the Nintendo SNES Classic Edition - it's going to be tough for the company on the production front. The Mario Kart elements are part of a limited-time experience expected to last only a few weeks. The LAN party method will also require each person to have a copy of the game.

I was pleasantly surprised with just how well online works in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes the best and makes it better. The Switch does not support the Wii U Pro Controller, GamePad or Wii Remotes, so your only options are between Joy-Con and the Switch Pro Controller. The multiplayer action can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways on Nintendo Switch consoles, with four different methods available to play with friends.

So has the popular racing series stood the test of time? The Switch is the fastest selling console in Nintendo's history.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will allow players to compete in frantic multiplayer races anytime, anywhere, and with anyone they choose. It's a mobile console first with removable small controllers.

Players can now carry two items at a time, including new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo, the item-stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode. Does not support two Joy-Cons held vertically.
