Eight more courses are bringing festive fun to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass DLC for Nintendo Switch on 7th December. Wave 3 includes the frolicking fields of DS Peach Gardens and originally from Mario Kart Tour, the frosty merriment of Merry Mountain, which features seasonal sights and sounds to take in while cruising around the track’s frigid peaks and towering pines. Plus, enjoy the colourful views of London Loop from Mario Kart Tour and navigate galactic turns in the 3DS Rainbow Road course, just to name a few.
Wave 3 includes the Rock Cup and the Moon Cup, with classic courses appearing from the Mario Kart series across the Wii, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS and Mario Kart games. Each course can be played locally or online. Courses are divided as follows:
