Mario Kart 8: Nintendos DLC is a creative bankruptcy declaration (comment)
Fans have long hoped for a continuation to the Switch-hit Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Instead, Nintendo is now a new and at the same time an old DLC for the race game - another proof that Nintendo originality has been no longer important for a long time.

- Nintendo Switch Online: Booster Pass Promises profits
- Remakes and Remasters: Nintendos Endless Nostalgia
Nintendo throws the recycling machine again and remasteries everything that is not at three on the banana trees. This time it meets the successful Mario-Kart franchise. Instead of a long-awaited new game Nintendo simply scrambles old tracks for the switch-game Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - a game that already has 8 years on the hump.
Mario Kart: DLC instead of new idea
By the end of 2023, Nintendo promises to make 48 new routes available by DLC for Mario Kart 8 - but is "new" here a stretchable, not to say wrong term, because the race courses were banned from the history of the franchise and Now become Remastered for the appearance on the switch.
This approach adapts on the one hand to the already existing routes, of which also many simple copies of previous days are - days where Nintendo has designed new routes for his racing franchise - on the other hand, the obvious lack of any originality itself for Professional nostalgic so slowly a poverty.
Look at the trailer for the Booster route Pass here:
Nintendo Switch Online: Booster Pass Promises profits
Nintendo builds up with the so-called booster pass a mario-kart monster made of long-fitting and buried stretch parts , which lacks any spark creativity - and that solely fulfilled by the promise of profit with life and then sold as desirable novelty will.
For 24.99 euros, the DLC will probably access one of the most popular Nintendo games of all times at the latest 2023 - or ** gain access via the Nintendo Switch online extension packed up to date, which offers even more well-known games still offered which were also partially recycled several times.
For Nintendo, this bill is undoubtedly worthwhile, because alone the franchise name is fans well value for the driving Frankenstein monster value - and because no new ideas are needed, a salary gain can be generated with the minimum of work will.
_Ihr see everything else and can hardly expect the new routes? Then you just order the Booster-Pass before: _
Remakes and Remasters: Nintendos Endless Nostalgia
While Nintendo appeared on the hardware page in the industry again as an innovator and pioneer in appearance, the company has set in relation to the game releases in recent years to the dimensions on Remasters or Remakes of its Greatest Hits.
Of course, Mario Kart 8 is on and by far no bad game, but in my personal map-racing ranking list is a respectable second place behind Crash Team Racing . The Booster Pass is representative of Nintendos seemingly increasingly expansive tendency to revive pretty much all the big names from their own portfolio - from Super Mario 3D Allstars to The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword to Mario Party Superstars.
Instead of using new ideas live, Nintendo sneaks far too often about the graves of their own games, always looking for projects that can be returned - quite as ** as if they have never read the cemetery of the cuddly animals. Once again Mr. King to paraphrase: Sometimes New is better, Nintendo.
In our picture gallery we show you the worst side of the players of the players:
The Booster Pass for Mario Kart 8 should add to the game by the end of 2023 48 Remaster routes. While the DLC for Nintendo without a question will be a profitable affair, the project lets any creativity miss.
