Following the announcement in February’s Nintendo Direct, the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass is available today. Nintendo's DLC expansion adds remastered versions of 48 classic tracks from past Mario Kart games to MK8 Deluxe. Impressively, this will bring the total number of tracks in MK8 Deluxe to 98.
So far, Nintendo has only announced eight of the 48 tracks included in the Booster Course Pass. That leaves 40 unnanounced tracks. But thanks to a datamine of the software update, some of these tracks may have been uncovered.
