Nintendo previously announced the Booster Course expansion pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is a paid DLC pack with 48 additional circuits, which the Japanese game giant provides across six “waves”. The first eight-track installment became available in February of last year and included Mario Kart Wii’s Coconut Mall, Mario Kart Tour’s Tokyo Blur, and Mario Kart 64’s Choco Mountain. Later waves followed with trails like Mushroom Gorge and Waluigi Pinball.
The Booster Course Pass costs €25 and is also included in the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription. In the near future, two more “waves” will appear, each containing eight circles, which should also contain the new characters.
