In certain multiplayer modes, you can pick which items will and won’t appear in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Custom Items screen. This applies to multiplayer modes. Not every online one allows it. However, offline VS will. The page shows a 4×6 grid of the 22 items available in-game. You can select which ones in the grid you’d like to see during a race. It is also possible to turn them all off, all on, or randomize which ones show up.

As a reminder, the paid Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC adds eight tracks. The Rock Cup and Moon Cup appear if someone buys the $24.99 pass or if they are a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscriber. The courses are pulled from past consle and handheld games and Mario Kart Tour.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is available for the Nintendo Switch, and the Booster Course Pack Wave 3 DLC is out now.
