More On: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

We are only a few days away from being able to say the sixth and final wave of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass DLC. November 9 marks the end of, what I think is a fantastic set of DLC. At first I was hoping for a brand new Mario Kart title, I have loved the series since the original and always look forward to the next one. But instead, Nintendo knew I needed otherwise. Not all heroes wear capes. With this wave, all 48 additional courses will be available as the content circuit is completed, doubling the base game’s offerings to give players an astonishing 96 courses from across the series to race through. I have found myself playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe every time a new DLC wave of courses has become available; truly adding new life to the game every time.Wave 6 features the Acorn Cup and the Spiny Cup, adding eight memorable courses from the Super NES, Nintendo GameCube, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Mario Kart Tour games. Each course can be played locally or online. Cups are divided as follows:

Acorn Cup

  • Tour Rome Avanti – Ciao! Zip around the Eternal City and navigate historic landmarks as you dash beneath the moonlight in this city course from Mario Kart Tour.
  • GCN DK Mountain – There’s a rumble in the jungle! Keep your cool as you wind up and down a volcano, dodge falling boulders and speed over swaying bridges in this wild raceway.
  • Wii Daisy Circuit – Take the scenic route through a seaside resort at sunset and loop around Princess Daisy and Luigi fountains in this idyllic course originating from Mario Kart Wii, but don’t stop to smell the flowers for too long!
  • Piranha Plant Cove – Ride among the reefs and ruins as you discover what lies beneath the waves in an underwater race filled with twists, turns, Thwomps and other obstacles!

    Spiny Cup

  • Tour Madrid Drive – Take to the streets of Spain in this lively city course inspired by Madrid. Hit the gas but watch out for any pesky soccer balls on the field that may come between you and your goal!
  • 3DS Rosalina’s Ice World – Bundle up for an icy excursion and try not to slip up as you weave through icicles, snowy caves and frigid waters in a course that draws inspiration from the Super Mario Galaxy game!
  • SNES Bowser Castle 3 – Want to prove who really rules the road? Crank up the heat as you drive, drift and glide over pools of lava in Bowser’s signature castle from the Super Mario Kart game.
  • Wii Rainbow Road – Race through space and soar among the stars on a twisty, prismatic path. This colorful and dynamic course is known for removing the guardrails, so make sure you stay on track!

But there is still more. Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Pauline, and Peachette are also becoming playable racers. 16 additional Mii Racing Suits, with a bonus Daisy Racing Suit obtainable by scanning any Daisy amiibo. There is a new Music Player feature rolling out allowing all Mario Kart 8 Deluxe players to listen to music from each course.The release of new courses might be over, but there is still plenty of life left in this game, that was originally released on the WiiU.
