    zenith, buddy, you don't have to put for Switch in every title lol. I mean, your OP will tell them it's for the Switch. However, saying that, this is actually a special case since it seems like the addition content on Switch will not be available in any form on the Wii U version, which is total crap

    feel this should be a launch title. kind of disappointed it's not. :(

    this, Zelda, and Smash at launch would have made my day.

    Super Smash Karts. It will go well with Super Smash Party.

    I really hate how none of this new stuff is apparently going to be offered to the Wii U version. I think I'd rather just play a little to download it there as opposed to buying it all over again for the Switch.

    I feel you Tron. I sold my Wii U and Mario Kart 8 is one of my favorites of all times so I'm salivating for this Deluxe version. It's gonna see some serious play time from me.

    I've been saying the same thing since the presentation. I think they should include a free DLC for Wii U owners, since the battle mode was so incredibly ******. Or at the very least, charge $5-$10, and that would be a fair thing to do, since we are the ones who originally supported the game.

    Now you have to buy the Switch, and then re-buy the game for a full $60 just for an upgraded Battle Mode and some new characters? :dry:

    This is a company, not a best friend. They are doing this to make money and while they could offer it for paid DLC, it'd make more sense to keep it as an exclusive as more incentive for people to buy the Switch.

    None

    Oh, get that out of here. No one said it in the context of being a 'best friend.' It really just makes sense at the end of the day, especially since MK8 already sold like 4-5 million copies on the Wii U and probably isn't going to be some megaseller on the Switch. We're not even talking about a significant amount of content either, it's really just a new Battle Mode and a few new characters.

    Should definitely be DLC of some kind for the Wii U platform.
