In related news, Nintendo Labo now supports Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which comes with a free update which will be available to you if own the game on Switch. Though the game has been on sale for more than a year, Nintendo has surprised everyone by bringing this free update. Labo support comes a part of 1.5 update and is now available.
