Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Is Getting 48 New Courses With a Paid DLC Bundle

Nintendo announced 48 new courses are coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as part of paid DLC called the Booster Course Pass during today’s Nintendo Direct.

The Booster Course Pass costs $24.99 as a standalone purchase, but Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscribers will get it as part of their premium membership. The 48 courses aren’t all coming out at once, though. Instead, Nintendo is dropping them in six waves.

Eight courses are planned to be released in each wave, all of which will be delivered to Booster Course Pass owners by the end of 2023. The first wave, available March 18, 2022, includes courses like Wii’s Coconut Mall, N64’s Choco Mountain, and Tour’s Tokyo Blur.

Mario Kart 8 was named the best-selling racing game in US history in April 2021. The combined sales of the original Wii U Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo Switch’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe pushed the game past the previous record holder, Mario Kart Wii. Recent reports suggest Mario Kart 9 is in “active development,” though for now it seems Nintendo is still focused on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
