Tour Naming[edit]

Out of curiosity, will we eventually rename the Mario Kart Tour tracks' articles to match other classic courses? Sprite of Yoshi's stock icon from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tails777 Talk to me!Robin's stock icon from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate16:57, February 10, 2022 (EST)

Once they are released, then we most likely will. Swallow's profile picture shown in NEO: The World Ends With You Swallow Rindo Kanade 17:01, February 10, 2022 (EST)
Though technically, Mario Kart Tour will probably still be using just Paris Promenade if it returns instead of Tour Paris Promenade, so would that be inconsistent? Tour is just causing a mess with some topics. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 21:14, February 10, 2022 (EST)
To be fair, we don’t know which variations of Tokyo Blur and Paris Promenade are being used. I feel they’re not gonna add the variation number based on which variation is used, which kinda complicates things further. Like if they use the Tokyo Blur 4 version, but simply name it “Tokyo Blur”. I assume the best thing would be to come up with a solution after the pack releases. Sprite of Yoshi's stock icon from Super Smash Bros.

I'd agree. The expressway route is available on "Tokyo Blur" in the trailer, but the actual route is only reachable in 3 and 4. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 22:54, February 10, 2022 (EST)
it seems to me that the Tokyo Blur used in the DLC is a new version, thats yet to appear in Tour, so I'd make a new page for the course, like how we have new pages for each version of it already. RSM, hoping to make amends soon. 20:28, March 4, 2022 (EST)
Honestly, better to just wait until the pack releases. At this point, it's two weeks away so we'll have that answer soon enough. Sprite of Yoshi's stock icon from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tails777 Talk to me!Robin's stock icon from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate20:32, March 4, 2022 (EST)

"Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Course" category?[edit]

I've noticed tracks like Sky Garden are in the Mario Kart 8 category even though they are absent from said game, I feel like we should add a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe category for the DLC courses, is this worth doing or should it be kept as is? RSM, hoping to make amends soon. 20:23, February 23, 2022 (EST)

I agree with this. Feel free. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 20:38, February 23, 2022 (EST)

Some Trivia that should be added.[edit]

Since Mario Kart Tour was released after Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this marks the first time a Mario Kart game has featured retro courses of a game released after it. Can someone please add that to the article here?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

This is not notable, post humos DLC content for future games added to past games is nothing new concerning video games at large (see Super Smash Bros.) and Mario Kart is simply following a wider trend. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 01:07, February 26, 2022 (EST)

Separate pages for the Tour tracks?[edit]

I'm curious about something. Since the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe versions of Tokyo Blur are technically different than the versions in Mario Kart Tour, should we make a separate page specifically for 8 Deluxe's version? Like 8's version of Tokyo Blur is on the Tokyo Blur page because of the name but it is drastically different in terms of map layout (in Tokyo Blur's case, each lap is based on a different variant, which would essentially mean that Tokyo Blur 1, 2, and 3 should all have a section talking about its appearance in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe). Paris Promenade on the other hand, contains many different elements than the original game, including going backwards, which isn't based on any version of the stage in particular. Ninja Hideaway is exempt from this because it's the exact same, but what should be the deal with this? PrPro03 (talk) 08:03, March 18, 2022 (EDT)

Well Paris Promenade is much the same, combining two variants so I think it would be prudent to have separate pages, specially given the remix courses have their onw ones too.

Guybrush20X6 (talk) 08:19, March 18, 2022 (EDT)

So does that mean we should make separate pages called "Tokyo Blur (Mario Kart 8 Deluxe)" and "Paris Promenade (Mario Kart 8 Deluxe)", or keep it as is?

i think we should keep it as is, the necessary info is explained perfectly so what would the point be in changing it? RSM, hoping to make amends soon. 20:38, March 19, 2022 (EDT)

Ninja Hideaway's Naming[edit]

So I know this has been discussed on the talk page too, but considering we don't know if the lack of console prefix is a mistake or not, I think we should still go with what the game is going with at the moment and use just "Ninja Hideaway" as the name. It's the currently used name, if it is indeed an error, it's something that can easily be changed down the line, but for now, it's just going by it's normal name and I feel it would probably be better if we did too. Any opposition to this idea? Sprite of Yoshi's stock icon from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tails777 Talk to me!Robin's stock icon from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

I think it would be best to just have "Ninja Hideaway" but then have a sic template with it, so it reads "Ninja Hideaway[sic]" RSM, hoping to make amends soon. 12:12, March 21, 2022 (EDT)

unreleased cups redirect?[edit]

I think that the pages for all the cups that are yet to be announced should simply redirect here until they have been announced, to reduce the number of red links so the page is more visually pleasing and looks less ""unfinished"". RSM, not who i used to be. 20:38, April 6, 2022 (EDT)

Move article to include hyphen.[edit]

The article uses a "–" in its title, which is not on the traditional keyboard. As such, all links that use a "-" instead are all redirects. To fix this, the article needs to be moved to "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Booster Course Pass" (using a hyphen symbol) - RSM 10:39, June 16, 2022 (EDT)

There's no problem with titles having characters not on the standard keyboard. It happens periodically, and redirects can fix that anyways. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 10:59, June 16, 2022 (EDT)

Wouldn't this be a good datamine?[edit]

I doubt this would get the wave 2 tracks correct by coincidence

Since we're already covering the upcoming leaked courses on this page, would it be okay to add them to the courses section with a citation for the leak? Hewer (talk · contributions · edit count) 17:20, August 6, 2022 (EDT)
