The wait is finally very nearly over. After a year of DLC drops, the final batch of new content for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is almost here. Wave 6 of the Booster Course Pass will bring with it four new racers and two more cups. Let’s take a look at it all and then go into the details, below:

New Racers:

  • Diddy Kong
  • Funky Kong
  • Pauline
  • Peachette

New Cups & Tracks (with lovely descriptions from Nintendo’s press release):

  • Acorn Cup
    • Rome Avanti (Mario Kart Tour | Mobile) – Ciao! Zip around the Eternal City and navigate historic landmarks as you dash beneath the moonlight in this city course from Mario Kart Tour.
    • DK Mountain (Mario Kart Double Dash!! | GameCube) – There’s a rumble in the jungle! Keep your cool as you wind up and down a volcano, dodge falling boulders and speed over swaying bridges in this wild raceway.
    • Daisy Circuit (Mario Kart Wii | Wii) – Take the scenic route through a seaside resort at sunset and loop around Princess Daisy and Luigi fountains in this idyllic course originating from Mario Kart Wii, but don’t stop to smell the flowers for too long!
    • Piranha Plant Cove (Mario Kart Tour | Mobile) – Ride among the reefs and ruins as you discover what lies beneath the waves in an underwater race filled with twists, turns, Thwomps and other obstacles!

  • Spiny Cup
    • Madrid Drive (Mario Kart Tour | Mobile) – Take to the streets of Spain in this lively city course inspired by Madrid. Hit the gas but watch out for any pesky soccer balls on the field that may come between you and your goal!
    • Rosalina’s Ice World (Mario Kart 7 | Nintendo 3DS) – Bundle up for an icy excursion and try not to slip up as you weave through icicles, snowy caves and frigid waters in a course that draws inspiration from the Super Mario Galaxy game!
    • Bowser Castle 3 (Super Mario Kart | SNES) – Want to prove who really rules the road? Crank up the heat as you drive, drift and glide over pools of lava in Bowser’s signature castle from the Super Mario Kart game.
    • Rainbow Road (Mario Kart Wii | Wii) – Race through space and soar among the stars on a twisty, prismatic path. This colorful and dynamic course is known for removing the guardrails, so make sure you stay on track!

A pleasant, previously unknown addition coming with Wave 6 is the inclusion of a Music Player to listen to any of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s tunes at your leisure. There will also be 16 new Mii racing suits, as well as an unlockable 17th so long as you have a Daisy amiibo to scan. Why Daisy? Honestly, we don’t know, but hopefully you have one to use if you’re looking to get that last suit.

The Booster Course Pass costs $24.99 or comes at no additional cost to those with active Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscriptions. Wave 6 will drop next Thursday, November 9, 2023. Are you pumped to finally play with this last batch of DLC content? Let us know what you think below and on social media!
