Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is ready to cross the finish line with its final DLC, the Booster Course Pass Wave 6, which races into the game on November 9, 2023. This wave marks the end of the additional content for the game, bringing a blend of nostalgia and novelty to the tracks.
The Mario Kart saga, which began on the Wii U in 2014, moved to the Switch in 2017, and introduced the Booster Course Pass last year, now rounds off with a collection of eight new tracks that span across the rich history of Mario Kart series.
Here’s a dive into the notable additions:
Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Pauline, and Peachette are racing into the character roster, bringing a mix of familiar and fresh faces to the starting line.
Wave 6 is a treat for long-term Mario Kart fans, featuring tracks from the original Super Mario Kart on SNES, Mario Kart: Double Dash on GameCube, Mario Kart Wii, and Mario Kart 7 on 3DS. Even the mobile game Mario Kart Tour has its representation with two tracks, while an original course called Piranha Plant Cove adds a new flavor to the race.
Mii Racing Suits
16 new Mii Racing Suits are introduced, with an additional Racing Suit unlockable using a Daisy amiibo figure. Now, personalizing your Mii racer got even more exciting.
A new Music Player is included, letting players enjoy every music track from the game in one convenient place, perfect for reminiscing or getting pumped before a race.
The Booster Course Pass Wave 6 is not just a mere addition of tracks and characters; it’s a homage to the entire Mario Kart series, ensuring that the saga concludes on a high note.
Whether you are a Mario Kart veteran or a newcomer, this DLC offers a nostalgic trip down the memory lane or an exciting venture into the Mario Kart world.
And hey, with the new Music Player, now you can jam to the Mario Kart tunes even when you’re not racing!
