News: More Nintendo Switch units will be arriving at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide just in time for the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be released this Friday on April 28. Toys “R” Us has just announced that they are going to be celebrating the release by having more Nintendo Switch units in stock at all stores nationwide. Stock will most likely be limited so you are encouraged to arrive there early and get in line to have the best possible chance of acquiring Nintendo’s new console.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 that was released on the Wii U and has a bunch of new content. The five new characters (Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, King Boo, Dry Bones and Bowser Jr.) bring the total number of racers to 42, a record for the beloved series. New karts inspired by Splatoon, the ability to hold two items at once, returning items like the item-stealing Boo and jumping Feather, a new Smart Steering control option, and even more awesome features truly make this the definitive version of an already classic game.

One of the most robust new features in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the addition of a revamped Battle mode that can be played both locally and online. The multiplayer Battle modes in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe offer a variety of fun options across eight colorful and well-designed Battle courses.

  • Renegade Roundup: Making its debut in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this new mode has one team trying to capture the other and put them into jail before time runs out. The opposing team must try to escape and can break their own teammates out of prison by pressing a button under the jail cell.

  • Balloon Battle: In this oldie but goodie, players earn points by popping balloons on the back of their opponents’ karts.

  • Bob-omb Blast: Originally seen in the Mario Kart: Double Dash!! game, this mode finds players throwing a barrage of Bob-ombs at opponents.

  • Coin Runners: By racing across the Battle course, players try to collect the most coins as possible in this fast and frenetic mode introduced in Mario Kart Wii.

  • Shine Thief: Steal the coveted Shine Sprite and try to hold onto it for a 20 count in this classic multiplayer Battle mode.


  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be available for $59.99 in stores and it will also be available digitally in the Nintendo eShop for the same price. Will you be showing up at Toys “R” Us on Friday to try and pick up a Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? Tell us what you think below.
