NINTENDO has announced the release date and tracks for the upcoming third wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC.
The new wave will feature eight tracks split across two cups, and is available to all those who have the Switch Online Expansion Pass.
New tracks coming in Wave 3.
All DLC tracks are also available to purchase separately and don’t require a monthly fee, though you will need the base game to play them.
The eight tracks will be released simultaneously on December 7, 2022.
The two new cups are the Rock Cup, which looks like a rocky mushroom, and the Moon Cup, like Mario Odyssey’s moons.
Here’s all the tracks coming in the third wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s DLC.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC Wave 3 – Rock Cup
There are four tracks in Wave 3’s Rock Cup. They are:
- London Loop
- Boo Lake
- Alpine Pass
- Maple Treeway
Carrying on the theme from the other Waves of DLC, London Loop comes from the free-to-play mobile game Mario Kart Tour.
The next two courses come from handheld Mario Kart games.
Boo Lake comes from Mario Kart Super Circuit for the Gameboy Advance, while Alpine Pass is from Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS.
The final track, Maple Treeway, is a fan favourite and started off in Mario Kart Wii.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC Wave 3 – Moon Cup
There are four tracks in Wave 3’s Moon Cup. They are:
- Berlin Byways
- Peach Gardens
- Merry Mountain
- Rainbow Road
This Cup has tracks only from mobile and handheld games, so fans may not be as familiar with them.
Both Berlin Byways and Merry Mountains come from Mario Kart Tour.
Peach Gardens is another popular track with fans, originally from Mario Kart DS.
The last track is the classic controller-smasher, Rainbow Road, and this particular version comes from Mario Kart 7.
