Yesterday, we noted that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was updated to Version 2.0.0. We knew that update was tied to the Booster Course Pass, but now we have the full patch notes straight from Nintendo. See what else this update tweaked and enabled below.
Support for DLC
Now supports Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass (Wave 1: 8 courses)
If someone in the lobby has the “Booster Course Pass,” all players can select one of the pass courses. This supports “Friends,” “Wireless Play,” and “LAN Play.”
Starting March 21st, you can select course from the Booster Course Pass in online play. Supports “Worldwide,” “Regional,” and “Tournaments.”
Even if the player does not own the “Booster Course Pass,” they can play courses from the pass randomly.
Shortened the time it takes for an Item Box to regenerate when it gets taken by someone else.
Fixed an issue where a communication error occurs when 12 people matched during online play. You need to download the latest update data in order to play online. If you download the latest update data, you will not be able to do “Wireless Play” or LAN Play” with other players who are using data from a previous update.
The update data contains fixes to issues that improve gameplay experience, and other content that is not listed here.
