The newest Mario Kart 8 Deluxe patch is out now, but it doesn’t add any features to the racing game. Update 1.21. fixes a problem that could make it take longer to get back into the lobby in some situations.

The online patch notes read (Via Nintendo Everything), “Corrected an issue that prolonged the time to return to the lobby after races near the start and end times of online tournaments.”

This is the third patch since the game’s release in April. The last patch tweaked the online mode to give players more items to help them catch up to other players. An update in May removed one of the Inkling Girl’s gestures that was deemed offensive.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has sold more than 3.5 million copies. It is the second best-selling Switch game, behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That game has sold around 3.92 million copies.
