Here’s a Deeper Look at How Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Fixed a FPS Issue From the Original

By now it’s no secret that Mario Kart 8 on Wii U had a FPS glitch that caused 1 frame every second to be repeated, meaning the game actually ran at 59fps. For most players, this was hardly discernible and many still happily play the game unaware of the issue. But others out there admit that it’s a pretty minor annoyance that at times can make them just not want to play. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fixed this issue, but GameXplain put together a comparison video that more readily shows you the big difference.
