#MK8D Version 1.2 Update

Postby McMurphy » Thu Jun 29, 2017 10:14 pm

On 6/28/2017, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe received another patch (1.2). Here is the breakdown of everything included in the update directly from Nintendo's site:

Version 1.2

  • Players can use Pikmin-themed amiibo to unlock a Pikmin Suit for the Mii driver.
  • Race rules and course name are now displayed on loading screens for online and wireless play, as well as Mario Kart TV.
  • Players who are behind in online matches will receive items geared toward catching up more frequently.
  • In online matches, no more than two Piranha Plants will be granted as items at the same time.
  • Controls are no longer unresponsive when the timer runs out when choosing a Mii racing suit for online matches.
  • When a player uses an item right after the Super Horn in online matches, that item will now remain available for other players.
  • Item wheel no longer spins continuously in online matches.
  • Online matches now end as intended 30 seconds after the first place racer finishes.
  • The Boomerang now returns to the first slot, if possible, after a player catches it.
  • Items shown in a player’s item slots now display correctly when holding an item behind them.
  • No longer possible to use an item after it has been used to block an attack.
  • Communication errors no longer occur frequently while spectating or after spectating online matches.

What do you think? The most controversial aspect of the patch may be the increase of the rubber band effect in the races. Otherwise, Nintendo fixing communication errors is a big highlight in this patch.

I haven't played since the update.. but I'm slightly concerned to see how it's going to work "nerfing" the racers in the bottom positions.... I'm imagining a lot of Bullet Bills... I'm afraid of the lightning.

We'll see!
