Rumour: Mario/Rabbids RPG crossover coming to Switch

Rumour: Mario/Rabbids RPG crossover coming to Switch

Deluxe launches in a week and reviewers have already got their hands on the Italian plumber's latest outing. It looks like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch console has become the fastest-selling Mario Kart game in the history of the franchise.

A report by Kotaku refers to the game as Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and insists that not only does it exist but it's going to be released this autumn. Nintendo has yet to comment on the said gaming news.

There's also a redesigned battle mode, with eight circuits specifically modelled for close-quarters gameplay instead of the recycled race tracks found in the Wii U version. Here's what the critics had to say.

Playing with friends in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Switch is proving to be quite hard for those that purchased the game. It assuages some of the frustrations players had with the way the original release handed out power-ups and adds a much needed layer of risk-vs. -reward thought to high-level play.

Eta Aquarids meteor shower will light up skies tomorrow
For most observers, the eta Aquariids are only visible during the last couple of hours before the start of morning twilight. The Eta Aquarid meteor shower contains the remnants of the famous Halley comet that appears every 75 years.

This afternoon Nintendo let it be known that their game Mario Kart 8 had broken sales records for the series, coming up first in several categories. Its lush colors pop on each unique track, making the distinctive environments and background detail all the more appealing to watch as you sail by if you're not too focused on the road. Recently, a father of three has shared his kids' experience on Reddit and ideas to play with Nintendo Switch.

Playing in portable mode drops the resolution from 1080p to 720p, but the difference is barely noticeable and the graphics are just as vibrant. It also has "a goofy sense of humor", two-player local co-op and sci-fi weapons. The racing is so frantic, however, that you won't see any difference.

Nintendo and Namco Bandai continue teaming up to create new Mario Kart games for the arcade.

In this Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Unlockables Guide, we have discussed all that you need to know about unlocking every single piece of kart, course, character, and even the Golden Parts in the game.

Bengal jetty collapse toll rises to 13
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced an ex-gratia of Rs 1 lakh to the next of kin of the dead and Rs 25,000 for the injured. The jetty was located in Bhadreswar of Hooghly district, about 41 km north of Kolkata , the capital city of West Bengal.

Speaking of which, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also up there in the number five position.

Still, for the Mario Kart 8 rookie, there's a lot to like here. Each controller that slides off the side of the Switch can be used by a different player, and up to four controllers can be used in total per console.

This will encourage all the Third-party developers to make more games for the Nintendo Switch. While the trademark Balloon Battle is present and correct (you start out with five balloons, hit others with weapons to burst theirs and score points, and end up halving your score should you run out), it's actually the other modes that we had the most fun with.
