And history repeats yet again.


Following the release of Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Wii U, Prima Games handled the publication of the game’s official guide and now fast forward to the present and Prima Games are now responsible for the official guide for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.


While some may wonder why is such a guide necessary when essentially all of the content in the original game was unlocked via game progression and amiibo and a similar thing is in effect for Deluxe, guides such as this aren’t just assisting you with a game, but its something to add to your collection of the content. Plus this particular instalment does have more content than the guide for the Wii U version and we’ve got the official description, followed by a photo, right here:

Revamped Battle Mode: Get tips and strategies for the revamped Battle Mode, complete with Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast! All DLC: Covers all previously released DLC, along with all new characters and vehicles. Free Mobile-Friendly eGuide: Includes a code to access the eGuide, a web-access version of the complete guide optimised for a second-screen experience.
