RUMOR: Datamined information can be used to predict where the future Mario Kart 8 DLC tracks will come from
A potential roadmap for the future!
We previously reported on a datamine that suggested which games the future Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC will come from. Twitter user Fishguy6564 had previously datamined the game and showed that each track in the DLC had a preset from which game the track would come from. You can see their original tweets down below.
At the time it was hard to tell if these presets were accurate or simply garbage data, confusion that was accentuated by some courses not having a preset at all. Well, now that we have information on which tracks will be included in Wave 2 we can check to see if the information is accurate and…it was!
The presets shown for the Turnip and Propeller cups were completely accurate, even down to the one course in the Propeller cup without a preset being the brand new course Sky-High Sundae.
Now just because this information was accurate doesn’t mean the rest of the data will pan out. It’s very possible that over the development of the DLC these courses may change, but for now, this datamine gives us the best idea of what we can expect from the Booster Course Pass going forward.
Assuming this information is accurate then that means the rest of the cups will have courses from the following games… (NOTE: “???” denotes a potential original track like Sky-High Sundae)
– Rock Cup: Tour, DS, GBA, 3DS
– Moon Cup: Tour, GameCube, ???, 3DS
– Fruit Cup: Tour, Wii, DS, ???
– Boomerang Cup: Tour, GameCube, GBA, Tour
– Feather Cup: Tour, Wii, GBA, Tour
– Cherry Cup: Tour, GameCube, SNES, ???
– Acorn Cup: Tour, Wii, ???, ???
– Spiny Cup: Tour, GameCube, ???, Wii
And this is a list of the total amount of tracks from each game we will potentially see.
Assuming the data is accurate there will be no more courses from Mario Kart 64 from this point onward. While this information isn’t guaranteed it is still very likely at this point in time, we will of course keep you updated if anything changes.
