Whew your quick sickr, guess I need to get back giving you updates again, and yes I know their not available now it sucks to just see them on the screen not being able to play it yet 😭
Damn, I forgot to mention you sending in the tip. Apologies! :) Yeah, I’m looking forward to testing out the new tracks tomorrow!
Lol it’s cool I’m just happy you got the news out.
Ýour really quick on your feet dude. I’m so excited for tomorrow dude.
So, it won’t let you play it yet huh? What did it say for you on the screen in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
If we download these course packs as part of the extension pass, do we get to keep them if we don’t subscribe for another year, I’m assuming not, so to own them will still need to purchase at some point?
You don’t get to keep them, infact you lose access to it when the online servers go down after the switch is done with so buying them is a whole lot better, if you want more info on it you can go to the dlc site and look at the Q’nA
You will continue to have access to them as long as your subscription to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is active.
Oh I got one question Sickr, So with people like us will have access to these courses only if we have a online Switch membership correct?
You need the higher tier Switch Online membership, Switch Online + Expansion Pack, or you can buy the downloadable content Booster Course Pass for £22.49 and it’s yours to own.
Soooo, this is random speculating, but anyone notice the rock mushroom cup & the fruit cup? Again, I’m just putting the thought out there, but the rock mushroom is from Super Mario Galaxy & the fruit is either from Animal Crossing or it’s that fruitt hat Yoshi eats in Super Mario World. I’m guessing the Rock Mushroom cup has either Rosalina’s Ice World from Mario Kart 7 or a new Super Mario Galaxy themed course. The fruit cup, I really wanna say that it might have a surprise new Animal Crossing course, but I’m pretty sure it’s a Super Mario World related course, or an old course that got inspiration from the game.
Nintendo has already confirmed that the pack will include mostly tour and retro tracks from older games so no newer courses unless their from tour, the apple is base off the yoshi apple from the new series.
I forgot about the new Yoshi games lol. In that case, I’m betting fruit cup’s gonna have Yoshi Falls in it, since thats the only Yoshi themed course in all the games.
Just fyi, the DLC is already playable right now (in the UK at least). Just started playing it :)
grrhhhhh. I have to wait another 4 hours……
How do you know its 4 hours? It never said it is.

Plus, GameXplain got theirs early.
