Labo Support Has Been Added to Mario Kart 8

Well, this is pretty unexpected! In an update earlier today, Nintendo added Labo support to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, with the title now being compatible with the Toy-Con Motorbike handlebars! Here’s a trailer showing the addition in action:

As you can see, it works about as well as you’d expect it to. Yeah, it’s probably not gonna replace the standard controller as the ‘best’ way to play on a competitive play, but it’s a neat Wii Wheel esque setup regardless.

And it seems it won’t be the only one either. Nope, Nintendo have also said other games will have Nintendo Labo functionality added in too. So, if you’re thinking of playing Breath of the Wild, ARMS or Mario Odyssey with Labo, that could well be a possibility down the line.

So, hey, what do you think? Are you happy Labo support has been added here?
