Thankfully these prices keep getting lower and lower, and some of us were worried about paying £60 for Switch games. £43 with Prime isn't too bad now, but hopefully they can get to under £40 soon!

Cheapest price at the moment, heat!

Supermod

Thanks

Pre-ordered, thanks!

Looks like they've finally matched Argos for the non prime price.

Good price for this currently. Don't think I can justify paying full price for this again, already own it on the WiiU and whilst I had a blast with it I got my fill.

I'm currently selling my Wii U copy, will fetch a few quid as it's a Nintendo game.

True, didn't think of that actually. Was keeping it for legacy reasons so I can look back on it but if I grab this version that'll cover me

Lazy Nintendo....its basically a re-release of the Wii U version with a few new characters and cars....not even any new tracks at this inflated price.

Never seen Nintendo do that before......they've always released a brand new Mario Kart game per console or handheld......times must be tough.

Thanks OP, ordered!

The console isnt even out yet!!!

I am sure a new release is planned but the ability to play MK8 handheld means I am in on day 1.

Remember people that you will have to pay for Online now

Only bonus I see there is playing on toilet and I can do that with my WiiU.. Disappointed with no new tracks!

It was a good game for Wii U, luckily I didn't pay full price for my copy. Bought the limited edition via Nintendo store. They had a delay and gave everyone a digital copy as an apology.

Took my physical copy to Game the following day and shifted it for a few quid less than it costs to buy new.

I doubt I'd own it again for full price. Should give people who own it digital a discount for the switch copy.

I'm all for remasters/ports of Wii U titles. There are some truly fun titles on the Wii U that didn't get the attention or sales they deserved due to lack of console sales. By porting them over new people can experience the game and enjoy it.

I fully expect E3 to have some announcements of titles being ported over or updated with new content for the Switch. Super Mario Maker is an obvious choice for this treatment.

It does include the DLC tracks and characters from the WiiU version, so a total of 16 more tracks than the base game (which had 32). However if you bought the DLC like me, then it does seem a bit disappointing.

Too much information

in first with cex will give you £10

So a re-release of a Wii U game on Switch that's in 1080p but still lacks any anti-aliasing, has some trivial extra content and where online play will soon be charged for. Bargain!

Nintendo can charge what they like for everything but charging for online just too far. They will make enough off dlc to pay for the servers if thats their excuse.

Worst remaster ever.....should be at least 4k

Is there no indication of a special release box bundle? Mario Kart Wii U had that blue shell bundle that is quite collectible.

What is with all the cliché put downs of the Switch and Nintendo on every Switch thread today? Are you not content with your mainstream console gaming or something? It is a Switch thread in case you hadn't noticed.... we are not loitering around the Mainstream console deal threads bashing away at them. Show some respect!

minimum 16k I'd say

My sentiments exactly!

Really looking forward to this on Switch, wish it was available at launch to be honest!

He is right though....nintendo have botched it. It may as well be called wii u 2.

has release date of 28th April? just need bomberman come down now

Wait wait wait?! People are bashing Nintendo because they are re-releasing a game that was on the wii-u as a port on the switch with all dlc content and even new characters and mechanics not even on the wii u version? It's like the ps4 and xbone have none of these types of games whatsoever......

anyways voted hot, good deal

Personally at that price, I'd never pay that much unless it was a Mario Kart collection with every single Mario Kart game

​precisely why the Wii u failed, people didn't even think it was a Wii 2, just an add on to the existing Wii. if you think this is a Wii u 2, you don't understand it's concept.

Wow, seems easy on Nintendo's part. Slap a silly RRP on everything and then whip em down a bit to look a better offer, and on a port too :O

Nice one op, cheers.

Should be half that price at least. Many have the game plus the dlc already. Plus originally that have a free game with it as well. This is terrible in comparison.

maaaaaan FINALLY i can stop hearing the moaning of "omg £60 for a game RIP Nintendo"
True gamers know they are place holder prices

Is this really a good deal? £45 for a deluxe version of a game that's been out a few years!

I stupidly bought the digital version... No way to upgrade to the Switch version...

Fxxx me I have a look at a Nintendo thread and there you once more kicking off on anyone who don't love Nintendo with all their heart like you do.

And droning on about them having a bias towards 'mainstream consoles' like Nintendo are some tiny indie company who nobody has ever heard of (_;) you got proper proper issues I'm telling ya.
