Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC Announced – Booster Course Pass

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC

In the newest Nintendo Direct, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC revealed. The Booster Course Pass DLC will release in waves, with a total of 48 new maps. Each wave has eight new maps, with six separate waves. Most of these maps are remasters of preexisting Mario Kart games from the other series. Sadly, this means that there will likely be no “new” entry in the Mario Kart series for the Nintendo Switch. But considering Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is pretty much the perfect Mario Kart game, having more content is pretty exciting news.

Is the DLC Worth it?

Considering the DLC isn’t out yet, the answer to this will be purely speculative. At a price point of $24.99, that places it at a little above $2 per new course. For players that love Mario Kart, this is an absolute steal of a price. Each map has immense replay value, offering different forms of entertainment. Nostalgia, exhilarating thrill, competitive fun, each map creates a whole new world for players to traverse.

But will the maps even be good? Well, it’s Mario Kart with the official Nintendo company brand name attached to it. And with how great Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is, there’s an incredible amount of quality assurance in these new additions. Keep in mind, many of the maps in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe were originally DLC for the Wii U entry. And for the most part, those maps were very impressive. Hopefully the same can be said for the upcoming future DLC.

Players who have the Nintendo Switch Online full expansion pack reap the benefits, since they get the entire Booster Course Pass for free. But the question of whether or not the Nintendo Switch Online expansion pack is worth it or not is a whole different issue.

In Conclusion

The community has been waiting for Mario Kart news for quite a while. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC brings brand new maps to the already amazing game, but pretty much eliminates the possibility of a new Mario Kart entry for the Nintendo Switch. Considering Mario Kart 8 is technically an eight years old game, this is a tad disappointing. But Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is, quite honestly, as perfect as Mario Kart games come. Therefore, 48 new maps in the upcoming Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC pushes the entry to even greater heights, solidifying it as the best Mario Kart game of all time.
