When Will Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Arrive On The Nintendo eShop?
Players who prefer physical copies of games are already having a blast with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a title which Modojo's own Brittany Vincent calls "the definitive version of Mario Kart, and the best racer you’ll find on the Switch." However, players who prefer digital downloads have been left sitting on the sidelines wondering when the game will finally become available for purchase through the Nintendo eShop.
Well, worry not. We have it on good authority that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be available through the eShop for Nintendo Switch tomorrow, Friday April 27, at 12 noon. This follows up on a Reddit post confirming that the game is already currently available through the Japanese eShop.
If grabbing the game early is of the utmost importance, we've got a handy guide for any players who are keen on downloading Nintendo Switch titles from other countries.
Also, for everyone who wants to jump into the Switch action but is yet to pick up Nintendo's hybrid console, Modojo sister site Shacknews is currently running a Nintendo Switch giveaway. Two separate Switch consoles will be given away, and for added zest, both have been paired up with a brand-new Pro Controller and a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. All the details can be found at the Nintendo Switch giveaway page over on Shacknews. Good luck, and may Lola favor you all!
