Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit works with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!

Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

A quick new video from Nintendo has delivered some big news: The Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit will be compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You can control any vehicle type in every game mode using the Toy-Con Car, Pedal, and Key from the Vehicle Kit.

This is something that gamers have wanted ever since the Vehicle Kit was even announced, since it was just so obvious a pairing. Now, we can all rest easy that this functionality is coming when the Vehicle Kit releases on September 14.

For Mario Kart fans who have never been hardcore enough to buy the steering wheel controllers that people use for games like Gran Turismo, this should be a really fun new type of experience. It seems to always be a good time to be a Mario Kart fan, doesn’t it?
