A new tweet from Nintendo this morning confirmed what we’ve all been waiting for: a date for Wave 4 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe pass. As a refresh, this multi-wave DLC release will consist of six waves in total, and the first wave dropped in March of 2022. Yep, we’re coming up on a full year into this DLC plan, and I have to say, it’s been going great so far.

Here are all of the tracks confirmed for Wave 4 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass (as well as Birdo, who is a medium weight class racer):

  • Tour Singapore Speedway (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Tour Bangkok Rush (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Wii DK Summit (Mario Kart Wii)
  • Tour Amsterdam Drift (Mario Kart Tour)
  • GBA Riverside Park (Mario Kart: Super Circuit)
  • DS Mario Circuit (Mario Kart DS)
  • GCN Waluigi Stadium (Mario Kart: Double Dash)
  • Yoshi’s Island (New)

Although I really dig the fresh whiff of nostalgia some of these returning tracks are wafting in, I have to say, I really love that we’re able to play some of the better Mario Kart Tour tracks without having to actually play Mario Kart Tour on mobile. Get my drift? The new tracks are icing on the cake too, and I launch right into those immediately.

All of the above Wave 4 tracks will drop on March 9, next week. Expect impressions shortly afterward! As a reminder, the Booster Course Pass (all six waves, which includes 48 courses) is $24.99, or included with the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.
