We’re rapidly approaching the halfway point for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Boost Card content. With two of the six promised waves of new courses already out, Nintendo has begun teasing what players can expect with the third wave, which will launch this holiday season. In today’s Nintendo Direct, we took the first two courses in the third wave of eight courses of new songs.
Fittingly, the first course we took for Wave 3 of the Course Booster Card was Merry Mountain. This holiday-themed track first debuted on the Mario Kart Tour in 2020 as part of the Winter Tour. Meanwhile, for those looking for something non-holiday themed, Nintendo is also bringing in Peach Gardens, a track that first appeared in Mario Kart DS in 2005.
Wave 1 gives fans favorites like Coconut Mall (Wii), Choco Mountain (N64) and Sky Garden (GBA), while Wave 2 gives us access to tracks like Kalimari Desert (N64). ), Mario Circuit 3 (SNES) and Mushroom Gorge (Wii). Each wave also gave us two songs from the Mario Kart Tour, with Wave 2 also including a brand new course in the Sky-High Sundae.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass Wave 3 is expected to arrive this holiday season.
