Which is the best course in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? You decide!


13/04/2017

When Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches on Nintendo Switch on April 28th it will include not just the 32 courses found in the original Mario Kart 8 on Wii U but also 16 downloadable courses, making for a whopping 48 racetracks all on one game card!

As we gear up for the release of the biggest Mario Kart yet, we thought it would be fun to help fans decide which is the ultimate course out of those 48. Which course can you simply not resist choosing every time you play a multiplayer race? You can let us know from 17th April when we start the Mario Kart 8 Course Cup on the Nintendo UK Twitter account.

Randomly drawing the courses to face off against each other in Round One!

How will it work?

We’ll post a series of “Qualifier Round” polls on the Nintendo UK Twitter page where 16 groups of three randomly selected courses will be pitted against each other. Then you’ll be able to vote on which of those courses qualify for round 2, with the winners going on to quarter, semi and grand finals. On launch day we’ll know what the UK’s ultimate Mario Kart 8 course is, just in time to settle any heated course selection arguments in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!

Here's the schedule…

April 17th – Qualifying groups

April 18th – Qualifying groups

April 19th – Qualifying groups

April 20th – Qualifying groups
