Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation brought exciting news for fans of ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’. Nintendo announced that the game, a Switch adaptation of the latest Mario Kart title (and one of the most beloved and profitable Mario Kart games ever), will be getting a substantial package of new content spread out over the next couple of years.

In detail, players can look forward to 48 fresh racing circuits, each a modernized version of a track from a previous Mario Kart installment. These tracks will be rolled out in six phases, with eight tracks in each phase. The initial phase is set to drop on March 18, 2022, featuring the following eight courses:

  • Paris Promenade (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Toad Circuit (Mario Kart 3DS)
  • Choco Mountain (Mario Kart 64)
  • Coconut Mall (Mario Kart Wii)
  • Tokyo Blur (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Fungus Canyon (Mario Kart DS)
  • Heavenly Park (Mario Kart Advance)
  • Stealth Retreat (Mario Kart Tour)

As of now, only the first phase has been officially scheduled, with the remaining phases expected to roll out gradually by the conclusion of 2023.

Players can access the DLC bundle, named the “Booster Course Pass,” in two manners: they can either make a one-time payment of $24.99, or opt for the Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack subscription. Either way, subscribers will unlock all 48 tracks as they are released, assuming they already possess a copy of ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’.
