Mario Kart 8 4.1 Update Now Available, Unlocks 200cc and Mirror Mode From The Start

Published

Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8, the latest entry of the Mario Kart series now available on Wii U in all regions, has recently received a new update which added a really interesting feature, the 200cc class which forces players to approach the game differently, as the higher speed is a little more difficult to control when compared to the other classes. This mode, together with Mirror mode, which allows players to play through tracks in reverse, isn’t available from the start, as players have to unlock them by obtaining golden trophies for all the regular cups of the game by winning all races in every cup. Or rather wasn’t, as it’s now available from the start thanks to a new Mario Kart 8 update released today.

The Mario Kart 8 4.1 update, which is now available in all regions, allows players who haven’t mastered all the regular cups to enjoy the 200cc and Mirror Mode right from the start. No other change or addition has been confirmed for this update so there’s really nothing new for those who had already unlocked this modes.

The Mario Kart 8 4.0 update has been released last week together with the new Mario Kart 8 DLC pack, which includes the new characters Villager and Isabelle from Animal Crossing and Dry Bowser, four new vehicles, the Bone Rattler, the City Tripper, the P-Wing and the Streetle, and eight new tracks divided into two new cups. All new tracks are incredibly well designed and offer unique features, like the Animal Crossing track which is set in a different season every time it’s played and more.

Mario Kart 8 is now available in all regions exclusively on Wii U. The new 4.1 update is also available right now in all regions so make sure to boot up the game on your console, install the update and enjoy the 200cc class and Mirror Mode if you haven’t been able to play them before.

“Really pleased” with Sea of Thieves PS5 sales, Microsoft

Published

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The new game from Danganronpa’s developers is being published by Aniplex, a Sony company, but it won’t be coming out on PS5

Published

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Published

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
