Nintendo has released "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" update 1.1 for the Nintendo Switch as the update includes fixes and improvements. Here are the details of the latest version of "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe".

"Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" Update Removes Offensive Hand Gesture

According to Games Spot, the expression in the "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" involves in raising a clenched fist while the other arm holds the raised bicep. It was used by Inkling Girl as a celebratory sign.

However, the "Italian salute" is considered offensive in some territories, including France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, and much of Latin America. Hence, the gesture has been replaced by a simple fist pump, and photos from NeoGAF user Neiteio show the difference between the pre- and post-patch versions.

Meanwhile, a few other minor changes were also included in the update, such as starting positions in online races. It also changes the invincibility periods after a spin-out and Mii facial expressions, according to WCCF Tech.
