Good news for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fans was shared during today’s Nintendo Direct. Not only is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe getting more courses, it’s getting a whopping 48 remastered courses to be exact!

The courses are being added in the form of paid DLC priced at $24.99 (USD), referred to as the Booster Course Pass, and will also be available as part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.

You won’t get all 48 courses at once, but rather Nintendo will be releasing sets of 8 courses at a time in waves, with 6 waves planned in total. The first wave will be available starting March 18, 2022, and the final wave will be released by the end of 2023.

The Booster Course Pass will release in waves, with Wave 1 available starting March 18, 2022.

And as mentioned above, if you don’t want to shell out $24.99 (USD) for the Booster Course Pass you can also enjoy the DLC as part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack which is a subscription service priced at $49.99 (USD) per year for individual, and $79.99 (USD) per year for families.
