Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch has just received a free update that enables use of the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Motorbike.
Using this Labo set-up will allow players to utilize the Joy-Con’s motion controls to steer, accelerate, and play with all the functionality of simply using the Joy-Cons by themselves, but in a more unique way.
The Toy-Con Motorbike is sold in the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit, which also includes the piano and fishing rod, and can be purchased for $69.99.
In our review for the Variety Kit, we said that the included motorcycle game that utilizes the Toy-Con Motorbike “feels a bit like Mario Kart 8 – it’s fun to play, but so short that it felt like playing a glorified tech demo.”
Now, those who own the Variety Kit will be able use their creations with a full-fledged title, and a great one at that.
