Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks list and what we know about future Wave tracks

The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks will offer us a total of 48 new tracks, doubling the track list of the original game.

Featuring courses from across the series, DLC tracks will come to Waves as part of the Booster Course Pass, and new tracks will arrive two cups at a time.

By the end of 2023, all courses will be available and until then, we have thousands of details about what to expect.

If you’re returning to Mario Kart 8 after a long period of time, now is a good time to finish clearing out the remaining unlockables, including the elusive Gold Mario.

Mario Kart 8 DLC Leaks: What do we know about future DLC tracks in Mario Kart 8?

So far, we know two things about the future Mario Kart 8 DLC courses. One, that they will all be based on other games in the series, including the mobile title Mario Kart Tour. Two, the names of the future cups, which are:

  • Wave 3: Rock Cup, Moon Cup
  • Wave 4: Fruit Cup, Boomerang Cup
  • Wave 5: Feather Cup, Cherry Cup
  • Wave 6: Acorn Cup, Thorny Cup

Otherwise, Nintendo has yet to officially confirm future Mario Kart 8 DLC tracks. That said, the datamines are giving us some indications.

One of MrNantendo on Twittershows a banner image with images of four tracks: Sydney Sprint and LA Laps from Mario Kart Tour, Mario Circuit on SNES and Koopa Cape on Wii, as well as possibly Rainbow Road (3DS), Vanilla Lake (SNES?), New York Minute (Tour), Sunset Wilds (Super Circuit) and Maple Treeway (Wii):

Looks like we have a data breach after all. Courses here include: – Sydney Sprint (tour) – LA Laps (tour) – Mario Circuit (SNES) – Koopa Cape (Wii)

Can you see anything else?

Elsewhere, another Quaa datamine on the Mario Kart Central discord (via kingdomharms on reddit) has suggested that future courses will include the following, with some overlap with the previous datamine:

  • DK Summit (Wii, reappeared in Mario Kart Tour)
  • GCN Waluigi Stadium (Mario Kart Double Dash)
  • Laps of Los Angeles (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Maple Treeway (Wii, reappeared in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart Tour)
  • New York Minute (Mario Kart Tour)
  • RMX Mario 1 Circuit (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Singapore Circuit (Mario Kart Tour)
  • SNES Mario Circuit 1 or 2 (SNES)
  • Sunset Wilds (Mario Kart: Super Circuit, later released in Mario Kart Tour)
  • Sydney Sprint (Mario Kart Tour)

As for the second wave, some of them, including the New York Minute, have been confirmed. Of course, take the above with a pinch of salt, but the reappearance of multiple Mario Kart Tour tracks (both original and remixed) may not come as a huge surprise.
