How It’s Played

Teams of 4 players take control of their favorite Nintendo characters and face off in 3 rounds of 6 races. Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe requires critical thinking, fast reflexes, and spatial skills for players to achieve and sustain success.

The Game

Players select from a pool of 42 characters and customize one of 41 carts before hitting the road in 4v4 team-based races.

The Action

Teams go head to head in 4v4 races on randomized tracks. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe race tracks are filled with items for racers to improve their own performance or to hinder other players.

The Goal

Matches consist of 3 rounds of 6 races (18 total races). Each player on a team receives points based on how they place in each race, and the team with the most points after 6 races wins the round. The first team to win two rounds wins the match.
