Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks leak in music datamine

Any hopes that Mario Kart 9 is skidding onto the Switch soon were dashed when Nintendo announced the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass.

Until the end of 2023, 48 classic tracks from past MK games will be added to MK8 Deluxe split across six DLC waves. Wave 2 was released last week, adding eight classic tracks including the fan-favourite Kalimari Desert from Mario Kart 64. There’s even a brand new track with the debut of Sky-High Sundae in a Mario Kart game.

With Wave 1 and Wave 2 out now, that leaves 32 tracks Nintendo has yet to announce for the Booster Course Pass. However, the remaining DLC tracks in the Booster Course Pass may have leaked thanks to a dataminer.

As Nintendo Switch dataminer OatmealDome explained on Twitter, Nintendo left many music preview files in the latest game version 2.1.0 update released for Wave 2 of the Booster Course Pass.

Fans have used these “prefetch” music files discovered by YouTuber Recordreader to identify which tracks appear to be planned for the next Booster Course Pass Waves.
