Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Now Compatible With Nintendo Labo

Owners of Nintendo’s Labo Variety Kit who also happen to have their hands on a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch are in for some neat news today, with a free update to the game going live today that enables full in-game Nintendo Labo support. Specifically focused on the most fitting Labo creation, the Toy-Con Motorbike, Nintendo released a new video on their official YouTube channel to showcase just what gameplay on the device will look like:


Those who download the latest free update to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will find a new option on the game’s main menu, which when selected will bring up a new video showcasing how the game plays with the Toy-Con Motorbike. Something I’ve been hoping to see done since the very announcement of Labo, we’re finally seeing the actual integration of the cardboard devices into titles not included in the original base Labo package. It’s a long-shot, but wouldn’t it be sweet to see the Toy-Con Piano integrated into Korg Gadget?

Available now on Nintendo Switch, further information on both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Labo can be found via Nintendo’s official website.
