Looks like Mario Kart 8’s controversial fire hopping has been nerfed on Switch
Nintendo appears to have removed Mario Kart 8’s sneaky fire hopping technique for the game’s upcoming Nintendo Switch re-release.
Footage from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, posted by GameXplain, shows that there’s no speed advantage to using it.
Fire hopping was discovered and named by fans back in 2014, when Mario Kart 8 originally launched on Wii U.
