The good guys over at NintendoLife recently uploaded a video showing off the graphical comparison between Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 for Wii U. In case you missed it, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is set to hit the Nintendo Switch on April 28th and will be the system’s next big title. With full 1080p graphic support and the updated battle mode, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe looks like it’s going to be pretty sweet for the Nintendo Switch.
