Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an enhanced Nintendo Switch version, released worldwide on April 28, 2017. It includes all previously released DLC, additional content, gameplay tweaks, 1080p graphics while docked,[and 720p in handheld mode. Some features in Deluxe are reworked or restored from previous Mario Kart games: Battle Mode has eight new arenas and several gameplay modes; the Boo and Feather items are restored; and players can carry two items at once, even if they don't drag the first item. Five additional playable characters were added to the roster, including Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, King Boo, the Inkling Boy and Girl from Splatoon, and an unlockable Gold Mario costume for Metal Mario. Deluxe also includes a new Splatoon racing suit for Mii characters unlocked via Amiibo, and additional kart parts for customization. Nintendo's head of software development, Shinya Takahashi, confirmed in July 2018 that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe would receive further updates, with the first, a new vehicle and alternate costume for Link based on those seen in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, being released the same month. A later update added support for Nintendo Labo peripherals as compatible controllers.
