You've got the green light
There’s very little chance you don’t already know, but Nintendo wants to make it extra clear that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s first wave of Booster Course Pass DLC is available. If you’ve somehow steered clear of this news up to this point, Nintendo put together an overview trailer to show you everything there is to enjoy in the Wave 1 DLC. You can take a look at that in the video above.
Also, if you still need more information on what this DLC is all about, you can read over Nintendo’s official press release below.
Take that hairpin turn and boost ahead, because fast and familiar courses are revving up in the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game for the Nintendo Switch system – and the starting line is calling your name!
Take a nostalgic ride through Mario Kart history with the 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. Each course can be played locally or online**, with the first wave launching today. To see today’s courses in action, check out an overview trailer here: https://youtu.be/0PpEiH23bMs.
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 the mobile game 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 membership, or by purchasing the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass available in Nintendo eShop as a separate purchase.
Plus, running through April 4, while supplies last, Happy Meals at participating McDonald’s locations across the U.S. will include one of eight different Mario Kart themed toys. Don’t miss out on your chance to put a Mario-inspired smile on someone’s face!
