The Vehicle Kit will be the newest addition to join the Labo family come September, and with just a few weeks to go until the release, Nintendo has revealed a really cool tidbit about its functionality: Players will be able to use the kit with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You can watch it in action with the game in this video:


This function really should come as no surprise to Nintendo fans, as it seems incredibly fitting that a driving themed Labo would work perfectly with the company’s world renown racing title. As the official Labo page states, owners of the Vehicle Kit will be able to play every game mode and every vehicle type with this controller option. You even have the choice to use this innovative method with friends in TV Mode or with your system inserted directly into your Car with the included Screen Stand attachment.

You can get an even closer look at the Labo kit in use with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in this hands-on video from Nintendo at Gamescom 2018:


The Vehicle Kit releases on September 14th. Pre-order it on Amazon for $69.99 today!
