During an event at the Tokyo Big Sight venue in Japan, Nintendo Showcased about ten minutes of gameplay of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

During the event, which you can see in full in the first video below, we saw one race and one match in the new Balloon Battle mode.

If you want to see just gameplay and skip all the batter, you can watch my recordings, which are in the second video for the race, and in the third for the Balloon Battle mode.

If you’d like to see more, you can check out another twenty minutes of gameplay, the announcement trailer, and the first screenshots and info.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will release on April 28th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
