This update allows players to connect two karts to one Nintendo Switch system for split-screen multiplayer, reducing the amount of money needed to spend on hardware. Considering that each kart system costs around $100, it's a great update for those who only have one Switch in their household.
The update doesn't facilitate online multiplayer, seeing as race tracks are determined by how you set them up in your own home. Nevertheless, local multiplayer has never been boring when it comes to Mario Kart.
