Mario Kart 8 Deluxe may have just received it’s most important new update. While also fixing a few bugs that don’t matter, Nintendo has introduced compatibility with the Toy-Con!

After installing the update, players will be able to use the motorbike Toy-Con, found in the Labo Variety Kit, to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The motorbike toy-con can be selected by accessing the new Toy-Con menu that will appear on the bottom of the games main menu screen.

Thankfully it works with all vehicles and game modes. If you have four Toy-Cons laying around, you can set up a four person cardboard motorbike race locally. If you want the in’s and outs of how the Toy-Con works with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nintendo have shared a video demonstrating how it works.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the first game to support Toy-Cons, other than Labo of course. Nintendo have teased that it won’t be the last, but we’ll have to wait and see what magic they weave in the future.
