Can now properly create a friend lobby when you have 100 or more friends.

Starting positions in online races now properly reflect the order in which players join.

With the new patch, the invincibility period, which happens after a spin-out or crash takes place, no longer exists in online matches. It also brought a couple of changes to the game, such as the opponents' names now being displayed in the rearview mirror.

The celebratory gesture was made by Inkling Girl in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and while the pose isn't offense in Japan - or the United Kingdom - it is several other countries. For some, that might seem of no concern - it seems Inkling Girl simply wants to brag about her speed in the race.

Nintendo's patch information reveals little about the change, and even now you know the change is easy to miss.

Of course, the new "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" patch is not just about fixing the above-mentioned animation.

The Inkling Girl previously had an animation where she would celebrate by raising a clenched fist, while her other arm held the raised bicep.

Also, in Worldwide and Regional modes, the game now adds players to Mirror and 200cc matches less often.

The Nintendo Switch's success meant overall video game sales were up 10% on last April, making this the first time there's been two consecutive months of year-on-year growth since November 2015.

Driver Miis now properly showing facial expressions.

Nintendo has a lot to shout about in the latest U.S. charts, as the Switch becomes the best-selling console for the second month running.

Finally, the tournament clock now better reflects real-world time.
