Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass Wave 3 Arrives December 7


Eight new courses are coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when Wave 3 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC releases on December 7.

With the addition of Wave 3 courses, 24 of the 48 courses in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass will be available to play.

Wave 3 tracks include Peach Gardens (Nintendo DS), and Merry Mountain, which features seasonal sights and sounds as you cruise around the track’s snow-kissed peaks and tall pines. There’s also the London Loop track from the Mario Kart Tour mobile game, along with the Rainbow Road course (3DS), just to name a few.

This batch of content features the Rock Cup and the Moon Cup, with classic courses appearing from the Mario Kart series across Wii, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, and Mario Kart Tour games in the series.

Here’s what’s included in Wave 3:

Rock Cup

  • London Loop – Drift around familiar landmarks in this England-inspired course, originating from the mobile game Mario Kart Tour.
  • Boo Lake (GBA) – This Boo-filled track is set on a haunted lake that originated in Mario Kart: Super Circuit!
  • Rock Rock Mountain (3DS) – Sharp turns and bouncing boulders are part of this high-altitude course and you can ramp over a warp pipe to put wind in your sails.
  • Wii Maple Treeway (Wii) – Enjoy fall foliage as you race across massive trees on this course from Mario Kart Wii – just don’t disturb the Wigglers.

Moon Cup

  • Berlin Byways – Watch out for falling Whomps and Thwomps as you make your way around this course that originated in Mario Kart Tour.
