Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best-selling game on the Switch, and Nintendo made it clear earlier this year that its successor won’t be arriving anytime soon as it’s rolling out multiple waves of DLC tracks through the end of 2023. The first wave launched earlier this year, and we finally know when we’ll be getting our hands on the next batch of tracks. Nintendo has announced that Wave 2 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass will be released next week.

Earlier today, Nintendo released a new trailer that showcased the new tracks coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Booster Course Pass Wave 2. The DLC will be released on August 4, 2022. Just like the first wave, Wave 2 will feature eight new tracks, all of which are modernized versions of classic Mario Kart tracks. Here are all of the new tracks coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe next week.

        Here's a course list for the curious:

        Turnip Cup
        New York Minute - Tour
        Mario Circuit 3 - SNES
        Kalimari Desert - N64
        Waluigi Pinball - DS

        Propeller Cup
        Sydney Sprint - Tour
        Snow Land - GBA
        Mushroom Gorge - Wii
        Sky-high Sundae - NEW!

        Turnip Cup looks solid - I've been hoping all those three classic tracks would make an appearance in the booster course pass. :D

        Some nice tracks, but still sad they're sticking with Tour's flatter aesthetic. Much prefer the original MK8 aesthetic and also don't like mixing the styles.

          My issue with the Tour tracks is they seem much wider and more forgiving for tight turns. Little to no drifting required, so they end up as fairly basic, forgettable experiences.
