Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is now compatible with Nintendo Labo's Toy-Con Motorbike following a new software update.

Players will be able to use the Toy-Con Motorbike from the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit as a controller for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe after downloading a free update for the game.

After downloading the update, which is available now, players will be able to select the Motorbike as a compatible controller for the game.

The update makes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe the first game to be compatible with Nintendo Labo outside of the two Toy-Con kits currently available.
