Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: Arrives In China Why You Will Not Be Able To Face Chinese Pilots


With a certain delay in lighting, the Middle Kingdom is preparing to host on its huge floor the latest transportable console Nintendo, it is in any case that presages the holding of a press conference scheduled for August 2nd. 

And among the first titles to see the day in the language of Confucius, we obviously find the timeless Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which is the subject of a few small changes so as not to offend the official discourse in force. 

But between some mandatory semantic changes that the Go Nintendo site echoes, we also learn that the online mode will not offer the same features as in other versions already available: in fact, it will only be possible here to confront “regional” opponents, or friends already registered as such. 

Clearly, impossible for Chinese players to face the rest of the world in wild races and inevitably unfair, even if it is only possible to communicate through a system of pre-recorded messages. Too bad, especially when you know the level sometimes stratospheric that can reach some Japanese …  

Oh, and if not, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will not benefit from compatibility with Nintendo Labo. Spread the word.
