Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Version 1.5.0 now available, adds in Nintendo Labo support

Version 1.5.0

Now supports the use of the Toy-Con Motorbike from Nintendo LABO Toy-Con 01 VARIETY KIT.

You can now set whether or not to use the Toy-Con Motorbike from the Toy-Con settings in the top menu.

At the screen right before the game begins, please set the Joy-Con inside the Toy-Con Motorbike.

When using the Toy-Con Motorbike, the camera will look over the character’s shoulder, increasing immersion.

Press the downward directional button to play with normal view again.

Addressed an issue where, after setting up a tournament, the “Search by code” feature would stop functioning.
Addressed an issue that made it impossible for a player to proceed after colliding with a Star Thwomp.
The latest update data is needed to play matches online.
Once you have downloaded the latest update data, you will no longer be able to play “Local Wireless” and “LAN Play” matches with other players who have not downloaded this data.

Up to this point, I was only seriously interested in the Robot kit, now I guess I gotta get both.

I wish they would do an update for co-op grand prix over wireless local play. My partner and I both own Switch's and Mario Kart, but to complete the Grand Prix star collecting, etc. we have to play together on one system and then again on the other and we don't get to have our own personal screens. Very inconvenient Nintendo, get on it *shakes angry fist*
