Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Now Supports the Labo Motorbike

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Labo

In a surprising development, Nintendo have updated Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Switch to now be compatible with the Toy-Con Motorbike from the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit. Update 1.5 is available now, which adds the Labo compatibility and makes a few bug fixed. Instructions for how to set up the Toy-Con Motorbike with the game can be found on Nintendo’s website.

The Toy-Con Motorbike is one of the Labo creations available within the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit, and once built it allows you to play a motorbike racing game included with the Labo software. Insert the Switch screen onto the controller and it feels like you’re in the driver’s seat, leaning left and right to steer. It has physical levers and buttons on it that actually perform functions within the game, so it’s a lot like playing an arcade game. Mario Kart 8 will function in the same way, making for a fun new way to experience the game.
