Over a year after its release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been updated. Nintendo has added some special functionality to the game. Once you’ve installed the latest patch, it’ll be compatible with Nintendo Labo.
The compatibility specifically extends to the Toy-Con Motorbike. This is included with the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was updated tonight to support Nintendo Labo. That won’t be the only game to be given such treatment.
In an announcement covering today’s patch and new contest, Nintendo states: “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the first game outside of Nintendo Labo software to receive Toy-Con support, and more titles will be compatible with Nintendo Labo in the future.”
Interesting, it seems that Nintendo plans to support Labo long term and point that you can use Labo outside Labo games definitely gives Labo higher value than it had.
