Eighth time lucky for 'Mario Kart'

The eighth entry in the long-running "Mario Kart" series first came out in 2014. Now a deluxe version is headed for Nintendo Switch, with the appropriate title "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe."

Ever since "Super Mario Kart" was released in 1992 on the Super Famicom, the franchise has delighted players with battle-meets-racing mechanics in games where your ability to chuck banana peels is just as import as your driving skills.
