 Find all the shortcuts to beat your opponents for the Dojo Ninja race in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, one of the game's new circuits.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has just added eight new races with the release of Wave 1 of the additional circuits pass this Friday, March 18.

Among these new races, we find Dojo Ninja from Mario Kart Tour. In order to save time on your opponents, we are going to give you shortcuts (or short-cuts) available for this race.

What are the Ninja Dojo shortcuts in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

For the Dojo Ninja run, there are two shortcuts. The first is the small basin which is before the first turn. To take it, do a slide to be in boost and succeed in cutting your turn. The second is on your left when you are at the level of the third ceiling which descends to the ground. This shortcut consists of destroying one of the two Piranha Plant panels and to do this you will have to take advantage of a boost either with the slide or with a mushroom. You can also skip it if you are under the effect of a star. To learn more about these short-cuts, you can check out the following video

Finally, we remind you that the Dojo Ninja race is part of the Maneki-Neko Cup which was added to the game with the release of Wave 1 of the additional circuits on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this Friday, March 18 on Nintendo Switch.
