Original article [Thu 4th Aug, 2022 11:40 BST]: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be full of new and old racers as Wave 2 of the Booster Course Pass hits Switch later today!

Finally revealed last week after much fan speculation, Wave 2 brings eight more courses to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in addition to the original eight that Wave 1 brought back in March.

The update drops to Today at 3 p.m. BST, so get ready to jump back into the driver’s seat. Official times for other regions have not been confirmed, but we believe it will be around the same time.

If you’ve forgotten which courses are added to wave 2, we’ve got you covered:

  • Turnip cup
    • Tour New York in a minute (Mario Kart Tour)
    • SNES Mario Circuit 3 (Super Mario Kart)
    • N64 Kalimari Desert (Mario Kart 64)
    • DS Waluigi Pinball (Mario Kart DS)
  • Propeller cup
    • Mario Kart Tour Sydney Sprint
    • GBA Snow Land (Mario Kart: Super Circuit)
    • Wii Mushroom Gorge (Mario Kart Wii)
    • Sky-High Sundae

Of particular note is the last Propeller Cup course, Sky-High Sundae, which is a brand new course. While all of the other seven returning characters have already been included in the mobile game Mario Kart TourSky-High Sundae is making its debut in the Deluxe version before it launches on your phones.

Note that if you have a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass subscription, you can access these new courses for free. If not, and you haven’t purchased your Booster Course Pass yet, you can purchase it now!
