Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Grand Finale: The Final Booster Course Pass Update


Attention, fellow speedsters and banana-throwing experts! It’s time for the grandest of grand finales in Mario Kart history. The final Booster Course Pass DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is hitting your Nintendo Switch on November 9, and it’s going out with a literal “BOOM!” – in the most fun and Mario-tastic way possible.

Since the dawn of time (well, actually, since March 2022), Nintendo has been like a culinary master chef, sprinkling delightful new tracks and delicious characters into our favorite racing game like seasoning on a Mario-shaped pizza. And with this, the sixth and last serving of goodness, they’ve officially matched the number of tracks from the original 2014 release. That’s right, we’ve got a 48-track smorgasbord waiting for us!

Now, for those of you who’ve already subscribed to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, consider this DLC your complimentary dessert. You’ve paid the entry fee of $49.99, and now you’re getting the whole Mario Kart cake. But if you prefer to pick your treats à la carte, you can snag the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass for a mere $24.99. It’s like choosing between the entire rainbow of Yoshi colors or just sticking with your trusty green one.

So, what’s cooking in this delectable DLC feast? Let me tell you:

  • Characters Galore: We’re introducing classic characters like Diddy Kong (remember the good ol’ days of Mario Kart: Double Dash!!?), the funkiest of Kongs, Funky Kong (a star of Mario Kart Wii), Pauline, and the ever-enchanting Peachette from Mario Kart Tour. That’s right; we’re throwing in more Kongs than you can shake a banana at.
  • Whip Out the Napkins: Get ready to tackle an impressive eight new tracks, including Tour Rome Avanti, Wii Daisy Circuit, GCN DK Mountain, and the watery wonderland of Piranha Plant Cove in the Acorn Cup. If that’s not enough, the Spiny Cup brings back classics like Tour Madrid Drive, 3DS Rosalina’s Ice World, SNES Bowser Castle 3, and Wii Rainbow Road. It’s like a who’s who of beloved tracks and a few new twists to keep things spicy.
  • Dress to Impress: We’re adding 16 more snazzy Mii racing suits, so you can finally embrace your inner Wario and don a snappy tuxedo while racing on Rainbow Road.
  • Soundtrack Sensation: Last but not least, we’ve got a sweet addition for your ears. With the new Music Player feature, you can jam out to the infectious tunes from each track. Your ears will thank you as you zoom around the racecourse!

So, dust off your racing suits, grease up those wheels, and charge your controllers. It’s time to put the pedal to the metal one last time with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course Pass DLC. The tracks are ready, the karts are revved up, and the finish line awaits. It’s going to be a wild ride, so get ready to Mario Kart it up on November 9 – don’t let that blue shell catch you!
