Nintendo released this week the second wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC included Sky High Sundae – a brand new addition to the Mario Kart franchise.
Nintendo’s announcement was as follows followed by a video that took the internet by surprise. It has been revealed that Coconut Mall, a course first introduced to the Wii, will be getting a bit of a makeover. In the new version, Shy Guy drivers waiting near the finish line – the last obstacle drivers face after reaching the finish line – will perform chaotic donut spins in an attempt to slow players down.
Something like this is best seen, so here’s a video link showing the update and the shy guys trying to get you off course.
