Reminder: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass is out Friday

Take a nostalgic ride through Mario Kart history with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass, and race for the finish line across a total of 48 remastered courses. In this paid DLC, eight courses will be released at a time over six waves by the end of 2023. All can be played locally or online, with the first wave launching Friday 18th March. 

The first wave includes the Golden Dash Cup and the Lucky Cat Cup, where players will be able to zoom up escalators and through storefronts in Wii Coconut Mall, dodge falling boulders in N64 Choco Mountain, rush by the roaring crowds in 3DS Toad Circuit, careen over the clouds in GBA Sky Garden, and traverse through tight traffic in DS Shroom Ridge. And for the first time, you’ll even be able to choose your own path in Tokyo Blur, Paris Promenade and Ninja Hideaway from Mario Kart Tour.

Supercharge Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass and experience more ramps, loops, turns and jumps as each of the six waves become available. Players can enjoy all six waves of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass at no additional cost with a paid Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.

    1. I assume we will get most of the Tour tracks because the ones we’ve got appear to be ported and only slightly tweaked (Coconut Mall included), which makes Tour tracks the easiest to bring to the DLC

    2. I’m pretty sure we’re getting all of Tour’s City tracks. which is what I’m happy about the most. Whether it’s midnight club, ridge racer, gran turismo, etc, I just really love city tracks.

  1. I wonder if you will still be able to play the DLC if you buy the Online+ Membership and not renew it after a year. Or will it only be playable with an active membership. Because if that’s the case I’d rather just buy the DLC independently.

    1. I believe it’s only available with an active membership, hence why I (and most other people) just buy the DLC independently.

  2. I bet you choose which variant of Tokyo Blur, Paris Promenade, etc. by holding R, ZR, L, or ZL at the track select screen, just like how you choose which season it is when you race on the Animal Crossing track. Can’t wait to see if I’m correct.

  3. I reaaallllyyyyy hope Moonview Highway & Daisy Circuit are returning. I loved those tracks to death in Mario Kart Wii.

    On another note, I’m contemplating whether I should play the tracks immediately or wait until next year when all of them are released so I can be even more surprised.
