    A question for those Mario Kart 8 Deluxe owners out there.

    I have two joycons and one Nintendo Switch. Can two people play locally on the same screen (TV or the tablet) using those two joycons in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? Would the screen be split for these two players?

    Also, can two people play at the same time on the same screen for online matches?

    Thanks!

    I don't own it, but I have seen Markiplier play it with one of his friends, and they only used one screen. I've also seen it on a few Nintendo promotion ads. As for the online play, I think everyone needs their own Switch for that, but I may be wrong. ^^" Hope that helps!

    I am pretty sure you can play two players Split screen, I have done that indeed. It is exactly the same way you play mario kart 8 on the wii u. You can play the game screen-split into 2 or even into 4. It must be said that you are not going to play two Split screen with just two joy-cons. In what respects the online features and matches, I am not sure you can play 4 players, but I think you can play 2 players.

    Docked: 2 player with 60fps, 4 player with 30fps
    Tabletop: 2 player with 60fps, 4 player with 30fps and decreased resolution
    Wireless: 2 players max per switch, meaning you need 6 switches for 12 players.

    I have seen people play a variety of ways. I think you need seperate Nintendo switch systems or joy-cons to play multiplayer
