Today, August 4th, the second wave of the booster track pass for the popular fun racer Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is scheduled to be released. So far, however, fans have had to wait impatiently because there is still no sign of the new routes. At least we know with some certainty exactly what time it will be, because the routes are supposed to appear simultaneously worldwide.
- This is the expected time when the second wave of DLC will go live: today at 4 p.m. German time
Where does this time come from? Resourceful Mario Kart fans have matched the countdowns for the second wave of the Booster Pass in the Nintendo Switch Online app. Accordingly, the new DLC will appear worldwide at the same time. Unfortunately, this countdown is missing in the German app, but the remaining global times would result in a release in Germany for 4 p.m.
