Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: patch 2.0.0, let’s see the official notes of the update

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been updated this weekend with patch 2.0.0, an important update that has brought, mainly, the addition of the first package of additional tracks of the Additional Paths Pass, but there were also other changes that emerge in the official notes relating to the update.

The main news is obviously the first shipment of the Additional Paths Pass, which has added to the catalog another 8 tracks that are part of the maxi-package intended to continue for the next few months, but there were also several changes applied to the main game, to accommodate the additions but also to correct and modify some consolidated aspects.

Among the biggest news is obviously the support for the addition of the pass and new content: in addition to the additional tracks, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been updated to support the Additional Paths Pass even by those who have not purchased the package.

As was previously reported: if someone in the lobby has the Additional Tracks Pass, all players in the lobby can select those tracks in the Friends, Wireless Play and LAN Party game modes, with the ability to select the new tracks starting March 21 in online play.

Other changes include a reduction in the time required to regenerate an item box on the track after it has been collected by a player, and fixed some communication issues in 12-player matches. In addition, some bugs have been fixed and the gameplay experience has been improved, according to the notes without going into much detail.
