When In The Know producers Antonio and Danny sat down to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, they knew they were in for a good time. (You can watch them in action on the video above.) Though they’d played previous versions of Mario Kart, this one was especially enjoyable because they were able to play together, but from their own separate apartments.

“As expected, it was really fun,” Danny said after their first tournament. “There’s a lot of sabotaging, which I love. It’s a very good upgrade to the Switch system.”

As it turns out, Antonio and Danny aren’t the only people raving about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game currently has a 4.9 out of five-star rating on Amazon and over 23,000 reviews. To say this game is a hit with shoppers would definitely be an understatement.

“Too much fun!” one shopper wrote. “This is such a fun game! My husband and I play together 3-4 times a week.”

Another shopper added, “I was skeptical about the no gravity aspect of this game, but I love it; this is a great game. Super fun and a great next step in the Mario Kart franchise.”

Whether you’re an OG Mario fan or you’re new to the franchise, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great buy if you’re looking for a new way to stay entertained while at home. Shop everything you need to start playing below.
