Nintendo fans were surely thrilled with what "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" had to offer and everyone would agree that it was worth a remaster of the original game. A lot of exciting DLCs have been up for grabs. There was even a full Battle Mode, which was a visual marvel.

With how complete the package already is, it would seem unlikely that the game would be getting even more content. However, Nintendo says it has no plans of slowing down. More updates will be released to get players something to be constantly excited about. Fans can certainly expect to see tweaks every now and then.

Many players might be enjoying the Nintendo experience with the release of a unique gaming experience by Switch. This new platform received one of its most successful titles, "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe." To bring in even more excitement, the game's first major update is now up for grabs. The game brings a good selection of little changes to make the gaming experience even more fun.

"Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Version" is one of the Switch's most anticipated games. Even though it is an improved version of the game that was previously released on Wii U, the title still came with a lot of minor bugs when it was released for the Switch last April. Fortunately, Nintendo knew all these and is continuously pouring in efforts to make the experience the best that there is.

Nintendo Life says that some of these updates include opponents' names now displayed in the rear view mirror while playing online. The invincibility period after a spin-out or crash is also now longer online. Up to two players can also spectate on a friend group while waiting to join in.

Players can now properly create a friend lobby when one has 100 or more friends. Regional and Worldwide modes will add players to Mirror and 200cc matches less often. Inkling Girl's animation has also been improved.

Driver Miis now show facial expressions properly, writes Nintendo Everything. Starting positions when playing online reflect the order in which players join in a game. The tournament clock now properly reflects real world time.

None of these update patch notes are game changing. However, it is nice to see that Nintendo has been taking good care of one of its most recent successes. Hopefully, these updates will keep players tuned in and Nintendo will keep bringing on the updates. Possibly, these will be bigger and better later on.
