While playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, players must have picked up coins on the race track, without knowing what the purpose of these coins is. Coins are scattered across every race track and every game mode in Mario Kart.
Coins have two useful attributes that will make you want to pick up more of them, while you are on the track. This guide will teach you the importance of collecting coins in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and why you should pick them up every chance you get.
What Coins Do In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:
Coins in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have multiple uses. Collecting coins is useful on and off the race track, so it has many benefits.
On the race track, collecting coins can give you a slight edge over your opponents. You can carry up to 10 coins during a race, and with every coin, your overall speed increases. This will give you the upper hand in races, however, the increase in speed is not that significant, but even the smallest advantage can win you the race.
Coins are useful even off the race track. During a race, when you are collecting coins, the game records how many coins you have collected overall. Depending on how many coins you have collected in total, new customization parts are unlocked for your karts. You don’t have to purchase these parts, as they will be unlocked for you as soon as you reach a certain number of coins. You can check how many coins you have in your Player Stats. By collecting these coins, players will be able to unlock karts, tires, and gliders. These items can be used to make a custom kart for the player.
Hopefully this guide helped you understand the importance of collecting coins in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game is now available on the Nintendo Switch.
