Since Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Update 2.0.0, we’ve already found out what new DLC cups await us in upcoming waves of the Booster Track Pass. The names aren’t final yet, but the icons gave us an idea of what to expect in future waves.
Another leak could now reveal which Mario Kart titles are included in the individual cups and how many completely new DLC tracks await us. The second wave featured the ice cream escapade as a new racetrack, but more may follow.
Mario Kart 8 with new DLC tracks
Twitter user fishguy6564 had already cracked the code of the Mario Kart 8 DLC and found out what new tracks could be coming in the future. This prediction has already been partially confirmed with the release announcement of the second wave of the booster pass. While we can’t see which tracks these are, we can already identify the tracks’ respective Mario Kart platforms:
