Mario Kart 8 Booster

Just in time for the coming weekend, Nintendo publishes the first part of the Booster Stretch Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on March 18th, which brings numerous new routes into play. In the first release round, a total of eight new slopes are included, which we already know from other Mario Kart parts. The racetracks come as a Remaster version in polished optics.

Although the DLC appears on Friday, interested parties can already begin with the pre-load of the Booster route pass. However, this does not apply to all buyers in the extension.

Who can download DLC? There is a little limitation. Only members of Nintendo Switch Online can download the route pass in advance. Those who bought the route pass regular for 24.99 euros must wait until the publication on Friday.

What are the contents of the route pass? Nintendo will publish a total of six waves each with eight routes, so a total of 48 new routes. The routes will appear in a period until the end of 2023. The first wave includes the following routes:

  • Golden Turbo Cup
    • Paris Course (Mario Kart Tour)
    • Toads Piste (Mario Kart 7)
    • Chocolate swamp (Mario Kart 64)
    • Coconut Promenade (Mario Kart Wii)
  • Lucky Council Cup
    • Tokyo Tempotour (Mario Kart Tour)
    • Mushroom Pass (Mario Kart DS)
    • Cloud piste (Mario Kart: Super Circuit)
    • Ninja dojo (Mario Kart Tour)

Mario Kart 9 is in development

Although Nintendo works with high pressure on the route pass, there is rumbling the next offshoot of the Mario Kart series in development. Mario Kart 9 should not appear before 2024. It would be conceivable that Nintendo once again waiting for the publication of all race tracks of the DLC until Mario Kart 9 is released.

In addition, we should probably see much more characters from the Nintendo Universe, which does not belong to the ridge of Super Mario. The coins should be completely eliminated and the Item system will be revised. For example, only one object should be carried along.

Which way do you get the Booster route pass? Or are you not interested in the new routes?
