A few months back, it was announced that one of the greatest classic Nintendo games of all time, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, was awaiting a major update in the form of 48 redesigned tracks from past Mario Kart titles. The new pack, Deluxe Booster Course Pass, will be arriving at our consoles in waves throughout 2022/23, with the first batch already hit the screens in March and the second DLС drop scheduled for early August.

Here is what is known about the second Mario Kart 8 Deluxe installment so far:

  • The second round of DLC tracks released in August includes eight games split into two cups – the Propeller Cup and the Turnip Cup.
  • Only one of the tracks is actually a brand-new title, while the rest are revamped versions of the old Mario Kart courses.
  • Unlike the previous batch, the second round of games features a new antigravity mechanic that enables players to move around vertical surfaces and travel in the upside-down position on certain parts of the course. 

There are two ways to access the new installment. The first one is free and is for the owners of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack memberships, who can simply download the new content when it is available and start playing it. The other option is to purchase the Deluxe Booster Course Pass for $24.99 if you have the full game version.

The eight games constituting the second round include Sky-High Sundae (the only new track among the sixteen games we have seen so far), Mushroom Gorge, Snow Land, Sydney Spring, New York Minute, Mario Circuit 3, Kalimari Desert, and Waluigi Pinball.
