I hope that the tournament is here for the long term, Dan! On the Wii U version we had a core of players who turned up nearly every week for over three years. It’d be great if the Switch version proved to be as popular.

It all starts this Monday... a new era for GR Mario Kart :toot: .

Yeah the longevity of MK8 on Wii U here was astounding, only being cut short due to means beyond our control!

At this point MK8 is a comforting warm cup of cocoa, so I'll certainly aim to keep playing :toot:

I enjoyed my first bash of this on Tuesday so I'll be aiming to join in as often as I can!

When does online go "premium" on Switch? Presumably we'll all need to sign up in order to keep playing MK8?

Yeah, Nintendo plans to charge for online play from “2018”, Jenuall. The benefits and costs are yet to be announced, though.

Okay $20 per year isn't exactly breaking the bank - will be interesting to see what the whole package contains though.

On occasion in the Wii U tournament, we had over twelve GRcadians join and so the racing was split across two rooms... maybe we will hit those heights again with the increased Switch audience!

Just as a heads-up for newcomers, if you ever get kicked out of the racing room due to a comms error, you may find that it’s best to re-join using the “join friend” option rather than go back in via the tournament.

I’m looking forward to seeing a few new and returning faces on the track tonight. Get ready for battle... deal with the rage... Mario Kart is back!
