About the Game

About the Game

Nintendo Switch Racing Pack

The versatile Joy-Con offer multiple surprising new ways for players to have fun. Two Joy-Con can be used independently in each hand, or together as one game controller when attached to the Joy-Con grip. They can also attach to the main console for use in handheld mode, or be shared with friends to enjoy two-player action in supported games. Each Joy-Con has a full set of buttons and can act as a standalone controller, and each includes an accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensor, making independent left and right motion control possible.

Nintendo Switch also contains a number of built-in features that make it more interactive. The left Joy-Con has a Capture Button that players can press to take instant screenshots of gameplay to share with friends on social media. The right Joy-Con includes an NFC touchpoint for interaction with amiibo figures, as well as an IR Motion Camera that can detect the distance, shape and motion of nearby objects in specially designed games. For example, it can tell how far away a player’s hand is, and even if the hand is forming a rock, paper or scissors shape.

Both Joy-Con include advanced HD rumble, which can provide compatible games with subtle vibrations that are much more realistic than before. The effect is so detailed that a player could, for example, feel the vibration of individual ice cubes colliding inside a glass when shaking a Joy-Con. With HD rumble you can experience a level of realism not possible through sights and sounds alone.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

With Nintendo Switch, racers of all ages can launch off the grid anytime, anywhere, with anyone.

Enjoy 48 courses available from the start, as well as five speed classes, including the expertly challenging 150cc Mirror Mode and the high-octane, ultra-fast 200cc mode.

In addition, players will now be able to choose from 42 racers, including returning fan favourites King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr and the newly added Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl from Splatoon!

Budding racers who are new to the series and wish to learn the tracks can now make use of the new Smart Steering feature, which will help prevent them from driving off the course. In addition, friends and siblings alike can compete using motion control with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Wheel Pair (sold separately on 28th April).

Mario Kart veterans can enjoy a more conventional playing style by using either a Joy-Con Grip or the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for more precise controls.

Friends can instantly compete in thrilling multiplayer races wherever they are, simply by handing one of the two Joy-Con controllers included with the Nintendo Switch console to an opponent and competing on the console’s built-in screen.

Extend the invite and place the console in the Nintendo Switch dock to play in TV mode in up to 1080p, where up to four players can settle scores over split-screen action! Test your skills online and challenge players across the globe, or go solo by playing in handheld mode – anytime, anywhere.

Plus, Battle Mode has been revamped and includes Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast! Including all-new courses such as Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, and returning ones like (GCN) Luigi’s Mansion and (SNES) Battle Course 1.

Players can now carry two items at a time, including new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo, the item-stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode.

Wish to race in style? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes with a wide range of amiibo compatibility, including all the Animal Crossing series and Super Mario series, while Splatoon series amiibo grant a new racing suit for Mii characters.

It is an average product at best. While it fits the Switch, it does not fit it snugly, and the switch is sliding around in it unprotected. Doesn't come with a screen protector or pad to prevent scratching if you have joy-cons or grips in the upper pouch.
The material itself is okay, but attracts dust and scratches, so do not expect to get a lot of life out of it when carrying your switch around in another bag or by just holding it / having it in your jacket pocket or cargo pants pocket (as no standard jeans pocked would fit that size anyway)

2 problems which concern me about the build quality:

1) Wifi signal is poor when all my other devices have maximum signal, the Switch only has 1 bar (even when only 5 metres away). I have superfast fibre broadband. This is the only device I have ever bought which has this problem so I am quite unhappy in regards to this.

2) My left JoyCon constantly desynchs, even though this was supposed to be solved at the factory level, as quoted by Nintendo's own statement. I now have to send these away and have been told it could take 2-4 weeks for a repair. Totally unaccepteble
