Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has officially crossed the finish line with its final DLC, the Booster Course Pass Wave 6, leaving fans with a mix of excitement and nostalgia. While the update brought in a variety of new features, characters, and tracks, some players can’t help but feel a sense of longing for the tracks that didn’t make the cut.
The Booster Course Pass Wave 6 has introduced a blend of old and new, with tracks from the original Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart: Double Dash, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, and even Mario Kart Tour. Despite this extensive list, fans are voicing their opinions on which tracks they wish had been included.
“Maka Wuhu and Wuhu Loop were honestly such iconic tracks, can’t believe they didn’t make it in,” shared one player, expressing their disappointment over the absence of these tracks from Mario Kart 7.
Another player chimed in, “Wario Colosseum would have been amazing to see with the GameCube representation. Why did it take so long to add Double Dash in?”
The Wuhu tracks, in particular, seemed to be a common theme among the disappointed fans, with another player adding, “Any of the Wuhu tracks would have been a great addition.” The sentiment was echoed by yet another fan, “Where’s Airship Fortress? That track was a classic.”
One player took a more comprehensive approach, listing out tracks from each game that they felt were missing:
“SNES – Ghost Valley 1 N64 – Bowser’s Castle GBA – Cheep Cheep Island GCN – Rainbow Road DS – Delfino Square Wii – Toad’s Factory 3DS – Wuhu Loop Tour – Piranha Plant Pipeway”
While the final DLC has brought a lot of content to the table, it’s clear that the Mario Kart community is passionate about the tracks they love. The missed opportunities for these classic tracks have left some players feeling nostalgic and others feeling frustrated. Regardless, the legacy of Mario Kart continues to race on in the hearts of its fans.
