Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: Booster Course Pass DLC Will Add 48 Remastered Courses to the Game
The DLC will be released in waves.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was released on Switch way back in 2017, but the game continues to be popular among players and families. Later this year, fans will have even more reasons to keep playing the kart-racing game, as premium downloadable content (DLC) will be released for the title.
The Booster Course Pass DLC will add 48 remastered courses from previous Mario Kart games to Mario Kart 8: Deluxe. The courses will be released in six waves, with each wave adding eight additional courses to the game.
The first wave in the Booster Course Pass DLC will be released on March 18, 2022. The rest of the waves will be released between March 18 and the end of 2023. All 48 courses will support online and multiplayer gameplay.
Wave 1 of the Booster Course Pass DLC will include courses like Coconut Mall from Mario Kart Wii, Choco Mountain from Mario Kart 64, and Tokyo Blur from Mario Kart Tour.
The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: Booster Course Pass is priced at $24.99. While Wave 1 won’t be released until March 18, players can pre-order the pass now on the Nintendo eShop.
The Booster Course Pass will also be available at no additional cost to subscribers of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack plan. You can learn more about the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription in our guide.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to own the base game of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to access this DLC.
