Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks list and what we know about future Wave tracks

Everything we know about Booster Course Pass tracks.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks will offer us a total of 48 new courses - doubling the track listing of the original game.

Featuring courses from across the series, DLC tracks will arrive in Waves as part of the Booster Course Pass, with new tracks arriving two cups at a time.

By the end of 2023 the courses will all be available - and until then, we're left with datamines as to what to expect.

If you are returning to Mario Kart 8 after a long spell, now is a good time to finish mopping up any remaining unlockables, including the elusive Gold Mario.

Mario Kart 8 DLC leaks: What do we know about future DLC tracks in Mario Kart 8?

So far, we know two things about the future DLC courses in Mario Kart 8. One, that they will all be based on other games in the series, including mobile title Mario Kart Tour. Two, the names of future cups - which are:

  • Wave 3: Rock Cup, Moon Cup
  • Wave 4: Fruit Cup, Boomerang Cup
  • Wave 5: Feather Cup, Cherry Cup
  • Wave 6: Acorn Cup, Spiny Cup

Otherwise, Nintendo has yet to officially confirm the future tracks for Mario Kart 8 DLC. That said, datamines are giving us some indication.

One, from MrNantendo on Twitter, shows a banner image with visuals of four tracks - Sydney Sprint and LA Laps from Mario Kart Tour, Mario Circuit on the SNES and Koopa Cape on the Wii - as well as possibly Rainbow Road (3DS), Vanilla Lake (SNES?), New York Minute (Tour), Sunset Wilds (Super Circuit) and Maple Treeway (Wii):

Elsewhere, another datamine from Quaa in the Mario Kart Central discord (via kingdomharms on reddit) has suggested future courses will include the following, with some overlap with the above datamine:

  • DK Summit (Wii, reappeared in Mario Kart Tour)
  • GCN Waluigi Stadium (Mario Kart Double Dash)
  • LA Laps (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Maple Treeway (Wii, reappeared in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart Tour)
  • New York Minute (Mario Kart Tour)
  • RMX Mario Circuit 1 (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Singapore Speedway (Mario Kart Tour)
  • SNES Mario Circuit 1 or 2 (SNES)
  • Sunset Wilds (Mario Kart: Super Circuit, later released in Mario Kart Tour)
  • Sydney Sprint (Mario Kart Tour)

Looking at Wave 2, some of these - including New York Minute - have been confirmed. Of course, take the above with a pinch of salt - but the reappearance of multiple Mario Kart Tour tracks (both original and remixed) is perhaps not a huge surprise.
