Welcome to our guide’s pit stop – come back often for insights into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (and DLC) tracks, tracks and circuits
You have probably already noticed, but we have kicked off a guide to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tracks, tracks and circuits. This project, initially released in conjunction with the latest episodes of the “big brother” dedicated to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, will keep you company from its writing (August 2022) to late autumn. Of course, the first twelve appointments will be more than valid even for those of you who only have the original su Wii U. From the thirteenth episode onwards, painfully or not, we will speak only and only of the Additional Paths Pass exclusive to the version for Nintendo Switch.
Plan of the work
Here’s how we’ll tackle the circuits in our Mario Kart 8 Deluxe track and track guide. We will deal with only one championship at a time, dedicating a short one to each of the four courses that compose them introductionand’image explanatory, one Description detailed and a vote to level design. That’s right: each episode, in its small size, will partly be a review for the game in the overall picture. For reasons we (albeit vaguely) alluded to during our LIVE A LIVE review, each illustration was shot in portable mode (for the first 16 episodes), thus boasting a resolution that is not necessarily representative of the game. We hope you will understand.
