Before we ride off into the weekend, we’re diving back into the monumental task of ranking Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s vast collection of tracks, total 96 altogether following the Booster Course Pass DLC collection. On this week’s ShackStream, we’re looking at the tracks of all of the villains in the game, so tune in if you want an influx of Bowser, Wario, Waluigi, and other tracks revolving around Mario’s enemies and rivals through the years.

We’re going to be going live with the latest Mario Kart 8 Deluxe track ranking livestream on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 11:30 a.m. PT / 2:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch just below.

Bowser’s Castle, Waluigi Pinball, Mount Wario, and plenty of other tracks featuring the fabulous rogue’s gallery of the Super Mario Bros. universe are the core of our latest ShackStream. If you like what we’re doing with these and other livestream shows like Pop!

We hope Bowser cleaned his castle corridors because we’re going to be filling them to the brim with skid marks, bananas, shells, and mushrooms as we race to the finish across Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s villain tracks. Stay tuned as we go live shortly!
