Key artwork for the Booster Course Pass DLC

The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass is a DLC expansion pack for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, announced during a Nintendo Direct held on February 9, 2022. The pack includes 12 additional cups, for a total of 48 additional courses (bringing the total number of courses to 96), all of which are remastered versions of courses from other Mario Kart games, including Mario Kart Tour. The courses are based on their designs from Mario Kart Tour, with the exception of DS Shroom Ridge, which is currently absent from said game. However, the courses have received visual improvements and new music arrangements compared to Mario Kart Tour. The pack marks the longest gap between the original release of a Mario game and the release of its DLC, releasing nearly five years after Mario Kart 8 Deluxe did. The pack also makes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe the first Mario Kart game to feature classic courses from games following the original game's release, with Mario Kart Tour and its reappearing courses debuting after Deluxe was initially released.

The pack is set to be released in six waves by the end of 2023, with the first releasing on March 18, 2022. It can be purchased on its own, but is also included in the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.[1] The first wave of the DLC was made available to pre-load on March 15, 2022.[2] If the player has purchased the Booster Course Pass or currently has a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership, a small icon of a Super Star can be seen next to the version number on the game's title screen.

Trivia

The datamined image
  • The pass was once erroneously referred to as the "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pack" on the official North American webpage.[14] The error has since been corrected.
  • The courses shown in the key artwork use official screenshots and in-game course icons from Mario Kart Tour. Some screenshots of the courses are Paris Promenade and Paris Promenade 3 with barrier fences from that game. It also features an official screenshot of the ninja Shy Guys in Ninja Hideaway, which originated from the Ninja Tour in-game preview.
  • In-game, Tour Ninja Hideaway's name is shown without the Tour identifier, making it appear as if it is a new course.
  • The 150cc staff ghosts for Mario Kart Tour's city courses are staff from the city's respective countries: Paris Promenade's staff ghost is from France and Tokyo Blur's staff ghost is from Japan.
  • A banner for the Booster Course Pass has been datamined for the game, which shows several currently unreleased courses, including New York Minute and a SNES Mario Circuit course. The banner uses official screenshots and in-game course thumbnails from Mario Kart Tour, including thumbnails for T and R/T variants.
