We've had a month of Switch games looking slightly better and running slightly smoother than their Wii U compatriots. But Mario Kart 8 already looked fantastic on the Wii U, and ran well too. So how does it run on the Switch?
Direct Feed Games on YouTube has a pretty simple direction: direct feed of games from the consoles themselves. Their latest comparison is Mario Kart 8, specifically the Wii U version against the Deluxe re-release on the Switch.
The main differences that stuck out were some improved sharpness, better contrast, a little more detail on the karts themselves. Textures in general are a little clearer, especially in the distance. It's best appreciated in motion, however, so check out the video below.
Nintendo Life has a side-by-side comparison as well:
Personally, super keen for 1v1 tournaments against Tegan with this. And we'll be in Tokyo when it launches, which should be fun to witness.
