Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will not include any additional race tracks when it releases on the Switch, Nintendo has today confirmed.

Despite previously announcing a rehaul of the title’s battle mode (which includes four new arenas), along with the addition of a few new characters, it had remained tight-lipped over whether or not new racing circuits would be included in the enhanced port.
It seems the Switch version of Mario Kart 8, will just be the Wii U one with all the released DLC included, nothing major added to it! :)

Switch_2TB.jpg
“Nintendo Switch is compatible with the SDXC standard, which supports up to 2TB.”

Fantastic news for anyone who’s embraced an all digital future yet was concerned with the Switch’s measly 32GB of internal storage. While we already knew the system would support Micro SDXC cards up to 256GB, a Nintendo representative clarified over the weekend that the Switch can be further expanded up to a whopping 2TB of memory.
When the Switch got announced a couple of days ago, right away people were worried about the small 32gigs of storage, and the fact buying a game like Zelda digitally would eat up 13.6gigs of that space right away, but not to worry Switch is an rich man's console, so you should have no problems forking over a couple of grand of memory cards, if not on bunch on 256gb ones, maybe for whopping 2tb one!
