Simply in time for the vacations, perennial best-seller Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is getting upgraded once more with its newest batch of DLC tracks. Booster Course Move Wave 3 goes stay on December 7, and can add the golden autumn Maple Treeway observe from Mario Kart Wii along with authentic tracks from the cell spin-off Mario Kart Tour just like the festive Merry Mountain.

- GBA Boo Lake
- 3DS Rock Rock Mountain
- Wii Maple Treeway
- Tour Berlin Byways
- DS Peach Gardens
- Tour Merry Mountain
- 3DS Rainbow Street
Whereas Merry Mountain and Peach Gardens have been teased earlier this 12 months, Maple Treeway and the 3DS model of collection customary Rainbow Street are the true showstoppers. The latter is so massive it truly options just one lap and extra aerial glider jumps than simply about another observe within the collection.
Maple Treeway, in the meantime, is revered as one of many prettiest programs whereas additionally housing some difficult shortcuts and a glitch that lets gamers discover the bottom of the tree they spend all race driving on (although it’s not a provided that Nintendo will replicate that exploit within the new model). And final however definitely not least is Boo Lake, which truly options an actual lake now, not like the model that initially debuted on the Recreation Boy Advance over 20 years in the past.
Nintendo has now revealed half of the 48 programs coming to Mario Kart 8 within the Booster DLC, and to this point they appear to line up with a earlier datamine leak, a minimum of in content material if not in timing. The large query now’s whether or not any of the remaining tracks will embody Waluigi Stadium from the GameCube period. Not one of the particular person DLC waves have included any tracks from Mario Kart: Double Sprint at this level, and the strain is mounting.
On the intense facet, the newest wave of tracks continues to look stellar, rather more so than a few of the preliminary programs launched earlier within the 12 months. Whereas remastered programs like Coconut Mall have been dunked on by followers for missing element and looking out much less real looking than their base-game counterparts, the brand new Maple Treeway and 3DS Rainbow Street refreshes appear as spectacular as anything presently in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, itself a port of an eight-year previous recreation.
Who is aware of after we’ll ever catch a glimpse of Mario Kart 9, however a minimum of followers will probably be consuming properly till we do.
