Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Version 1.1 Update Now Available

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has received its first big update since release which changes and fixes a lot of issues, specifically with online play, in addition to making some minor changes as well. Major online changes including removing the invincibility period after a spin-out, allowing two friends to spectate a race before joining and changing starting positions to reflect when a person joined the online session. The update has also decreased the frequency of Mirror and 200cc races appearing for those in higher ranking and now allows players to see their opponents names in the rear view mirror while online.

One of the Inkling Girl’s animations received a slight adjustment and in all game modes the Mii characters now properly display expressions depending on the situation.
