Believe it or not, despite Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being 4 years old, Nintendo has not forgotten about the game at all. It is largely due to the game becoming an evergreen title, still selling well even today. But, if you thought that Nintendo had decided long ago not to update the game anymore, then tonight’s news might surprise you.
A brand new update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe released earlier tonight, bringing it to version 1.7.2. As for the official patch notes, they only list a couple of things. They said that they “addressed an issue that caused tournament points to be reset.”, and that they “addressed an issue that caused match history with friends to be reset.”.
