5 more Mario Kart 8 Deluxe characters to be added after Birdo

Earlier tonight, Nintendo released the 4th wave of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass. This new content also came with a new playable character, Birdo. However, Nintendo did confirm that Birdo would not be the only new addition to the roster in the coming months.

Well, thanks to the release of the DLC tonight, we now know exactly how many characters are planned. The updated roster screen now shows 5 question marks, which means that there will be 5 more characters that Nintendo will be adding to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in future Booster Course Pack waves. You can see a tweet relaying the news down below.

  1. Diddy Kong, Petey Piranha, Funky Kong, Paratroopa, DK JR., ROB, Honey Bee, and Wiggler are the only non-Tour characters I can think of that aren’t in 8 yet.

    1. No. I like Donkey Kong, but I really hate Diddy Kong and the other Kongs. I DO NOT WANT THEM IN MARIO KART 8 DELUXE. They should add Kamek, Nabbit, Pauline, Petey Piranha, and Hammer Bro. They have never been in a Mario Kart. I strong recommened Nintendo to do that. Diddy Kong fans can just play him in Wii or Double dash. Or Nintendo can add a booster character pack which can be sold separately from the game and booster course pack. Nintendo can make even more money by adding a character pack sold seperately.

      1. They could make a dlc character pack and put diddy and the other kongs in instead of putting it in the game alone itself and the booster course pack. People can choose between purchasing the game itself and choose between booster course pack, booster character course, or purchase both if they want.

  2. Most popular choice: Pauline, funky kong, diddykong
    Somewhat possible for the last 2: Petey Phirinnah, kamek
    Least likely imo:Paratroopa, dixie kong King bom-omb

    Just my guess honestly and I welcome any character to the pass cause I’m playing it for the courses.

  3. Chris Pratt Mario, Jack Black Bowser, Seth Rogan Donkey Kong, Charlie Day Luigi, and live-action movie Goomba.

  4. Pauline has to be one of them; with her resurgence since Mario Odyssey and inclusion in Mario Tennis Aces and Mario Golf Super Rush, she is the most likely of my guesses to make it to MK8D. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a New Donk City track in Wave 5 or 6 come with her.

    Two of the other four I want have been in Mario Kart games past: Diddy Kong and Petey Piranha.

    The last two I’m hoping for are Kamek and E. Gadd. Kamek if I’m not mistaken was planned for MK64 before being replaced with Wario, and I’ve been wanting E. Gadd since the days of MKDS, which he was rumored to be planned for inclusion during the game’s alpha.

  5. I’m personally hoping for characters from other franchises. It would be cool if the 5 characters would be something like: Captain Falcon, Fox, Mewtwo, Kirby, and Samus

    1. I don’t know about all the other Kongs. Diddy is a lightweight and Dixie likely would be as well, but Funky Kong? He’s a heavyweight if memory serves. Stuffing all the Kongs into one slot likely wouldn’t work if they’re in different weight classes.
