Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The Mario Kart series has managed to become extremely popular since its debut on the Super Nintendo console back in the 90s thanks not only to the incredibly fun kart racing experience all entries in the series offer but also to their character rosters, which have been expanded in each new game in the series with new racers.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the latest entry in the long-running series, did the same as well, expanding the character roster quite a bit and adding a few racers that come outside of the Super Mario Bros. franchise. Here are all of the characters available in the Switch game.
