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.
- New York Minute (Mario Kart Tour)
- Mario Circuit 3 (SNES)
- Kalimari Desert (N64)
- Waluigi Pinball (DS)
- Sydney Sprint (Mario Kart Tour)
- Snow Land (GBA)
- Mushroom Gorge (Wii)
- Sky-High Sundae
In addition to the classic maps, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Booster Course Pass Wave 2 gets a brand new track with Sky-High Sundae, which sees players racing through delicious sweets among the clouds. The first four tracks will be a part of the Turnip Cup, with the next four being a part of the Propeller Cup.
The second wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks will be available to players that purchased the Booster Course Pass for $24.99 USD. It’s also available at no additional cost for players that are subscribed to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.

Gas up your karts and put on a new set of tires, Wave 2 of the MarioKart 8 Deluxe - Booster Course Pass arrives 8/4!
Here's a course list for the curious:
New York Minute - Tour
Mario Circuit 3 - SNES
Kalimari Desert - N64
Waluigi Pinball - DS
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 real nostalgia vibes with Kalimari Desert
yeah baby!!! sadly i DC'd Nin. online and never play my switch....................................... who wants to buy a switch
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.
Oh dang a brand new course too, wasn't expecting that.
I hated the first 2 so far :(
