MK8 Deluxe - Fire Hopping Is No More

Postby McMurphy » Fri Apr 21, 2017 1:37 pm

Based on a GameXplain's video covering Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, fire-hopping has been removed from the game. Perhaps the third tier of drifting is meant to be a substitute? Either way, what do the rest of you think?

Personally, I never bothered nailing down fire hopping, but I wasn't particularly against either. Nintendo had ample occasions to patch it out of the Wii U version, after all. I do think, going forward, it was a smart decision to place a more defined speed boast skill in place in its stead. I have placed the video I am referring to below.

Sidenote: Did you notice that MK8D will now let you change kart combos between races? Now, that is an update I LOVE.

Firehopping, something I did alot of, and I'm glad it is removed. I hope all the other techs are gone as well.
Just charging MTs and using items would be soooo relaxing.

Changing characters and kart between WW races without jumping out have always been a dream.
Something I'm looking to get good use of this time around.
