Race towards the finish line in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!

Tonight, on the Stevetendo show, we’re taking a sharp turn back into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. For those who don’t know, Wave 3 of the Booster Course Pass DLC released today and we’re going to put these tracks through their paces. Wave three adds tracks from Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 3DS, the Game Boy Advance game, and Mario Kart Tour.

Peach Gardens and Maple Treeway are some of my favorite “retro” tracks and it’s nice to see them return in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It would have been nice to see a brand new Mario Kart game but getting 8 new tracks into next year is a nice alternative. Set to go live at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET make sure you get a front row seat so you can get some driving tips from the Stevetendo show!

Shackers who want to join in on the fun can head over to the Shacknews Twitch channel, where you can tune into the Stevetendo show every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 

If you can't make tonight's show, you can watch Monday nights at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET. The plan was to play Super Mario RPG and other role playing games the rest of the month. However, that was before I knew the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass Wave 3 DLC was coming out this week. That being said, Majora's Mask and Super Mario RPG are going to help us celebrate the beginning of 2023, rather than end 2022 with a bang.

If you want to support the Shacknews Twitch channel with more than just watching the great programming, then I suggest you subscribe with Prime Gaming. It’s simple, painless, and best of all, it’s free. Subscribing allows you to support all the great Shacknews Twitch shows, not just the Stevetendo show! Join in the fun as we try to complete these great video games and talk some sports. If you've watched the Stevetendo show, you know we check the scores during the livestream. I would love to talk Jets, Devils, and Mets all night but that’s only a portion of what you come to the show to see. Devils defeated the Blackhawks 3-0 last night and I knew you wouldn't be able to sleep if you didn't find out who won.

Start thinking of different games you want to see played on the Stevetendo show in the New Year. If it’s available on the Nintendo Switch Online service, then it can be played on the program. I mentioned that I'm planning a Golden Eye 007 Playthrough whenever it gets added to the Nintendo Switch Online service so stay tuned as the game hasn't been given a release date yet.

The Stevetendo show isn't the only great show the Shacknews Twitch channel has! Make sure to check out the Shacknews Livestream schedule every week to see what other great entertainment the Shacknews family has to offer!
