Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s newest booster pack is out with 8 new courses

There’s once again a fresh dose of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe action out for Switch, with an expansion that spans both past installments and new stuff.

The saga of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues this week, as the Switch port of the Wii U original just keeps getting better. This time it’s with the release of another booster pack, loaded with 8 courses spread out across 2 more Cups.

As with past Booster Pass Courses, those include tracks first seen in Mario Kart titles for the Game Boy Advance, GameCube, DS, Wii, and even the mobile MK, Mario Kart Tour. Also as we’ve sene before, there’s a totally new course as well, and all of the above can be played online and off.

The set is out right now, and here’s what you can expect from it:

Fruit Cup

  • Tour Amsterdam Drift – Cruise from scenic city streets to fields full of colorful tulips in this Amsterdam-inspired course originating from the mobile game Mario Kart Tour.
  • GBA Riverside Park – Through waterfalls and over bridges you’ll go in this jungle-themed course packed with sharp turns and towering greenery that originated in Mario Kart: Super Circuit!
  • Wii DK Summit – Soar to new heights and carve down the hills on this twisty, turny and wintry course featuring ramps galore and some cool sculptures of familiar friends.
  • Yoshi’s Island – Move and groove around this new course inspired by the Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island game on Super NES! Flutter your feet over to the winner’s circle as you zoom through flower-covered hills and over cloud-dotted skies – and is that a gargantuan Nep-Enut?!

Boomerang Cup

  • Tour Bangkok Rush – Golden skies, shimmering waterways and stunning sights aplenty are calling your name on this course that originated in Mario Kart Tour.
  • DS Mario Circuit – It might be called Mario Circuit, but this Mario Kart DS inspired course prominently features none other than Peach’s Castle among its rolling hills and winding roads!
  • GCN Waluigi Stadium – Get ready to speed around the multitude of obstacles and ramps that make up this furiously fast dirt course that originated in Mario Kart: Double-Dash!!!
  • Tour Singapore Speedway – The city lights shine bright at night – but don’t slow down to stare! Drift your way to first place and be mindful of the vacationing Goombas on this colorful course that originated in Mario Kart Tour.

Along with all of the above, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!‘s Birdo is back, and the Super Mario Bros 2 star has 9 colors to pick from.
