Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Loads Significantly Faster On Nintendo Switch

A new vibrant colour like this adds to the Switch's appeal to the fun side of gaming. The Switch portable console hit the market just recently, however, and Nintendo also mentions some other investments that required costs but didn't have an immediate revenue impact. To do so, the company would have to maintain steam on both the software front and with game releases, but Nintendo didn't say much about such plans at this point. GameStop features the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con in the weekly ad.

But for the time being, details are sparse and while it's not been mentioned, we suspect that this new Nobunaga's Ambition game will only appear on the Japanese eShop.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be released on April 28. Toys-R-Us, Best Buy and GameStop all have a limited quantity of the Switch just in time for tomorrow's release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The impact of red-hot Nintendo Switch sales on GameStop's results will be a little clearer in about a month when the retailer reports earnings and updates guidance.

In other words, Smash Bros. for Wii U was my game of the year in 2014, and unlike Brawl (which I also loved despite its quirks), there's absolutely nothing about it that I want to be replaced or rendered obsolete.

Mario Kart arrives on Friday and Puyo Puyo Tetris came out on Tuesday, but two games actually arrived on the Switch eShop today as well.

But trust us, it'll be worth every penny.

Why do Super Mario Bros. platformers and Mario Kart never cross paths?

First up, United Kingdom players will finally get their hands on top-down indie RPG Kamiko, which was previously available on the Japanese eShop. Nintendo will also sell a Splatoon 2 case (¥4,298 - $39/£30/35€), big enough to pack the system along with a Pro Controller, cables, the dock and two game boxes. The first is ACA NEOGEO OVER TOP, which is a top down racing game and the latest NEOGEO game to re-release on the Switch.

This is a popular PC and mobile game created by Raitalaka Games.

The Nintendo Switch game promotion will last through June 20, 2017.

Fortunately, Toys'R'Us will soon replenish its stocks much to the delight of Nintendo fans.

The Nintendo Switch continues to be a hard to find item. Running at a native 1080p while docked, and maintaining 720p in handheld mode, this remastered version of Mario Kart 8 bumped up its score on IGN by a third of a point.
