Video games. Do you know this hidden menu in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

Twelve to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in one living room? This is possible, of course, if you have the equipment and space for this. As the first and second waves of new content have just been released to flesh out the number of circuits available, Twitter has caught fire after reopening the hidden LAN option in the main menu.

If this menu is actually “hidden” in the sense that it requires a little manipulation on the controller to appear, then it has been known since the game’s release, i.e. five years. Not enough to share the little secrets of the Mario Kart saga…

All the information you need to set up LAN with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch is also available from Nintendo Online Support. However, it seems that many players still didn’t know about it, hence the buzz around the original Mankalor tweet.

What is a local network?

In case you don’t already know, a LAN Party, simply referred to as LAN, is an event where players play together by physically linking their machines. LAN comes from the English local network, or simply “local network”, and refers to this mode of information exchange between various terminals (computers, consoles, etc.) without access to the Internet.

So for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this means meeting up to twelve on site, as races are limited to twelve participants. Therefore, this option is especially useful for organizing tournaments.

Obviously, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe also offers other multiplayer modes, such as the classic local mode on a single console that can pair up to four players, as well as the online mode for wild games against opponents from all over the world.

How to make the hidden LAN menu appear in “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe”?

To bring up the hidden LAN option in the main menu of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch, simply hold the L and R buttons on your controller and press the left stick. The local wireless mode is then replaced by the LAN mode.

To organize your LAN, you will need a lot of material: for each participant (or a couple of participants, since during Mario Kart 8 Deluxe LAN there can still be two participants per console) you need a Nintendo Switch console with its docking station, game Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, AC adapter, Ethernet cable and TV. Good luck !
