Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 October 2017
The explosively eye popping Skittle coloured visuals accompanied by uplifting fast tempo music and gravity defying plunging track design shows that this Nintendo Switch conversion of a now 3 year Wii U Title hasn't aged a day. If your forking out again this version now comes complete with all of the DLC Tracks and Characters and an Updated Battle Mode. Considering that Mario Kart 8 sold quite well in the context of the doomed Wii U it seems a smart move to re-release this title with a few extra bells and whistles on the initially popular Switch as Nintendo knows everyone who purchased the Switch will buy this game.

Supporting the Switch's main selling point of starting a game at home before pausing it and picking up where you left off on the train or bus, this game is the Ideal Advertisement for the Switch's flexible and quirky qualities. Here is a game that not only has a solid, meaty single player campaign but new life is breathed into it during Multiplayer where a challenge anyone not to get into arguments playing it. I like the introduction of now holding 2 weapons at once as you couldn't do that back when I played Mario Kart Games adding a tactical edge at the business end of races when a melee breaks out between the leading racers vying for the Gold.

With Battle Mode restored a Bumper Pack of Race Tracks and Characters and tweaked visuals means this now 3 year old game has enough content and replayability to warrant a purchase, highly recommended.
