Nintendo Switch is making huge waves following its release, with players continuing to wonder what sort of games are still coming. Apparently, one of the most highly talked about titles is confirmed to arrive. It's no other than Mario Kart 8, and so far, everything's been moonlight and roses.

According to Kotaku, Mario Kart 8 is officially coming to Nintendo Switch next week. It's worth noting that it first came to Wii U, though its release that time was not really celebrated. It's said that its arrival to the new console will try to bury all the negativity it caught on Wii U. Well, it looks like to be on that very path actually.

The new Battle mode in Mario Kart 8 is quite astonishing, so to speak. In the previous iterations of the franchise, players are given special arenas built specifically for the mode's competitive mini-games. However, in its Nintendo Switch version, it is going to take a different direction. In a sense, it wasn't significantly efficient for a game mode that required players to stay in a general location of one another.

As soon as Mario Kart 8 arrives next week, it will automatically receive its Nintendo Switch Deluxe tag. It will introduce a total of eight custom arenas specifically developed to keep all players close enough. This will allow them to pop each other's balloons in a much easier way. Stealing coins and blowing up each other will still be part of it. There are a total of five modes -- namely, Balloon Battle, Bob-omb Blast, Renegade Roundup, Shine Thief and Coin Runners.

Business Insider, on the other hand, notes that Mario Kart 8 on Nintendo Switch has much better graphics compared to its predecessors. There are also more tracks for players to enjoy, as mentioned above. It is safe to say that this is by far the best version of the game.
