Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Now Supports Nintendo Labo; More Titles To Get Support In The Future
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe received a new update today, which introduces support for Nintendo Labo.
On its Official Website, Nintendo confirmed that the racing game can now be played on Nintendo Switch using the Toy-Con Motorbike from the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit.
You can play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in TV mode using the Toy-Con Motorbike, or insert the Nintendo Switch system directly into the Motorbike’s dashboard to play it on-the-go! Additional driving options such as Smart Steering and auto-accelerate are also available when using the Motorbike as a controller.
A new trailer showcasing Nintendo Labo support has also been released, and you can check it out below.

The popular kart racing game will not be the only game to receive Toy-Con support in the future. It’s definitely nice to hear, as up until today, the Toy-Con could only be used with the Nintendo Labo Software.
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. Please stay tuned!
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is now available on Nintendo Switch in all regions.
