How to set up a multiplayer race in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is now available on the Nintendo Switch. Although most of the content is the same as the one on Wii U, there are some changes, like most (but not all) characters, karts, tires, and gliders are open. If you are preparing for a multiplayer race to compete against your friends for the first time, here are a few things to help you make the best race of your life.

How to choose your controller


After you choose the type of multiplayer race – Grand Prix, Vs. Race, or Battle – You must choose a controller that you will use to play the game.

Fortunately, your Switch will automatically check the type of controller you use to play multi-player games. Whether you have two, three, or four players, you will be asked to register each controller by pressing the R and L buttons simultaneously. If you are using a Pro controller, or Joy-Con Grips, press the L and R shoulder buttons simultaneously.

If you use a Joy-Con split – one person uses the left controller, and the other uses the right – press the L and R buttons on the side (which will be oriented upward when holding Joy-Con in landscape position).

Have each player confirm their controller before continuing to choose your character, kart, and course.

How to set up a multiplayer race

You can choose from three types of races in multiplayer mode: Grand Prix, Vs. Race and Battle. Each offers a different type of game, and each type has an option for what type of race you are running.

  • Grand Prix – Choose from 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, 200cc or Mirror. “Cc” means the speed of your kart. If you are new to the game, choose 50cc until you are experienced enough to continue. In Mirror Races, everything is upside down and upside down, which is very confusing, but a lot of fun, especially if you are too familiar with certain courses.
  • Vs. Race – In Vs. Race, you can adjust the rules. You have the same cc speed option, plus the Mirror track, but you can also choose whether you and others play in a team or free-for-all. You can also choose the types of items that can be collected in the game: No items, no items or coins, panic items, normal items, only skins, only bananas, only mushrooms, or omb-bob only. You can choose the COM level where the kart can be from the COM no., Or easy, medium, or hard. You can also limit COM vehicle types to karts or bicycles only. When it comes to choosing a course for full V. Race, you can choose it yourself, make it randomly, or play in sequence. Finally, you can play four, six, eight, 12, 16, 24, 32 or 48 races. If you plan to have a very long racing session with your friends, you will need a pitstop before you are done with all 48 races.
  • Battle – In Battle mode, you can choose a battle style, from Shine Thief, Random Battle, Balloon Battle, Renegade Roundup, Bob-omb Blast, or Coin Runners. You can also choose the same customizable options as in Vs. Race, with additional lap times for all except Battle Thief Shine.

After you choose the race type and adjust your options, press OK and you are ready to play.
