GN Version 5.0

Version 1.1

- Opponents’ names are displayed in the rear view mirror view in online matches.
- Invincibility period after a spin-out or crash is longer in online matches.
- Up to two players can spectate a friend group while they wait to join.
- “Worldwide” and “Regional” modes add players to Mirror and 200cc matches less often.
- Can now properly create a friend lobby when you have 100 or more friends.
- Inkling Girl’s animation has been adjusted.
- Starting positions in online races now properly reflect the order in which players join.
- Driver Miis now properly showing facial expressions.
- Tournament clock now properly reflects real-world time.

The pose in the image seen above was misconstrued by some to be offensive. Today's patch takes that victory pose and changes it. As you can see, the update also adds a number of other changes as well. Thanks to Sylvalum for the heads up!
