Nintendo Showdown: Vote for the best home console Mario Kart game

home console Mario Kart

Welcome back to another edition of Nintendo Showdown! This is a weekly series at Nintendo Enthusiast, and it requires some audience participation. Every week we’ll compare two (or more) Nintendo games and pit them against each other in a poll. Your votes decide the winner, so choose wisely. Tomorrow marks the anniversary of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe‘s release on Nintendo Switch. In celebration, this week’s poll is a showdown of home console Mario Kart games. Help us decide the winner by casting your vote below!

Best home console Mario Kart

Tune in next week

This will be part one of a three-part Mario Kart showdown series! Next week, we’ll pit the handheld Mario Kart games against each other. The winner of these first two rounds will then square off in one final match. You may have noticed we didn’t include Mario Kart 8 on this list. We’ve decided instead to include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the most complete version of the game, in the final round. It’s both a home console Mario Kart and a handheld at the same time. We’re fast-tracking it to the final round as an anniversary gift, and because it just seems fitting.
