Q – What format will the Races/Battles be?
A – We’re leaving that up to the individual groups to decide! But if you’re focused solely on racing you might be a bit stuck

Q – Do I need my own Nintendo Switch and a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
A – Please check with your local group for a definitive answer, but we’re sure some members will be happy to offer a Joy Con over for some split screen fun. Bringing your own Nintendo Switch will be the only way to guarantee entry, however.

Q – What prizes are in store?
A – Prizes will be confirmed in the next week. Watch. This. Space! There have been whispers of trophies and eShop credit, though…

Q – When will the online final be?
A – Still TBC at the moment but we’re aiming for one of the last weekends in May.

Q – Why isn’t there a qualifier near me/in my town/on my front door!?
A – The twelve qualifiers chosen were based on a mix of first come, first served, and represent a strong spread of active StreetPass groups. To find an unofficial Nintendo Community group near you to complain to directly, or see if your area lacks a group (a good impetus to start one), check our community map here:

Q – I’ve got a super specific question about this thing that you haven’t thought of!
A – Oooh thats a great question, If you could write it down in the comments I’ll try my best to get an answer for you as soon as possible.

We’re super exited to head to the starting grid and hope to see you there at one of our many events!
