Come up shy on this one
Millions of racers around the world are having fun with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course Pass tracks. There’s plenty of secrets and shortcuts to discover, but in the case of Ninja Hideaway, there’s also a sneaky softlock.
As seen in the video above, if you hit a ramp about a third of the way through the course and land by a particular sign, you’ll be stuck there until the race is over. There’s no way to reverse course and get back on track, which guarantees you a last-place finish.
When racing about in this area, make sure you stay away from this dead zone! Hopefully Nintendo fixes this up in the near future.
