With Breath of the Wild behind us, there are a handful of Nintendo Switch games that people just can’t wait to get their hands on. Splatoon 2 is obviously one of them, as are ARMS and Super Mario Odyssey. But Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is probably at the top of most people’s lists, and it just so happens to be set to launch one week from today! If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber (or if you sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial), you’ll save 20% by pre-ordering Mario Kart now before it launches. Hurry though, because you only have one week left.

Here are a few notes from the product page:

  • Hit the road with the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 and play anytime, anywhere! Race your friends or battle them in a revised battle mode on new and returning battle courses.
  • Play locally in up to 4-player multiplayer in 1080p while playing in TV Mode. Every track from the Wii U version, including DLC, makes a glorious return.
  • Plus, the Inklings appear as all-new guest characters, along with returning favorites, such as King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr.!
