[Let’s Talk] Final hopes for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks
Posted on September 23, 2023 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk, Switch
When the final wave of Booster Course Pass DLC drops this holiday, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will finally stop adding more tracks. Thinking about the amount of content the game has, it’s kind of insane. Between the main release and DLC, players can race on nearly 100 courses.
Previous datamines have given hints as to which other tracks will make up the final wave of the Booster Course Pass. But potential leaks aside, what’s the one Mario Kart course we’ve yet to see in the game that you’d like to be be added? Let us know in the comments below.
Personally, especially for a huge Mario fan myself, I’d say this was a great direct. Not an “amazing” one, no, but I enjoyed it left and right.
The announcements of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door remake (though I hope its N64 predecessor gets the same treatment as well, especially since I liked that more than the still-amazing TTYD) and Contra: Operation Galuga got me all the more hyped, alongside more info for Princess Peach: Showtime! that made me want to buy it. Though it didn’t wow me as much as Donkey Kong ’94 on Game Boy, I am glad to see Mario vs. Donkey Kong being remade and chances are, I might buy it. I am interested in Another Code: Recollection.
I am aware that most of the games I listed are remakes, but I haven’t played most of these in a long while and I kind of want all of my games unified onto one system (particularly the Switch).
I mean it wasn’t a smash but it was fun to watch. I’m excited to see Another Code especially since I’ve always wanted but have never played Trace Memory. The new Peach game looks like a great game for my kids, I liked seeing how they’re utilizing her. Seeing unanticipated ports is always fun even if they’re not something I plan to get, just opens up accessibility to older games which I’m a fan of.
I was very surprised to see F-Zero but was not expecting it to be a 99 game. Haven’t tried it yet but interested in giving it a go. Can’t necessarily take it as a sign that F-Zero will come in the future though.
I was not surprised that there wasn’t any more Zelda ports. I know people have been waiting but it’s too close to Tears. I also wasn’t super surprised to not hear anything about Metroid, sure a little disappointed but at this point I’m just assuming their keeping it for the next console and increasing the graphical fidelity in the mean time.
I was a bit disappointed because nothing really excited me, it really felt like the 3DS direct at the end of his life and that’s ok. I just wanted some retro surprise in there, like Zero Mission om the GBA NSO.
Nothing overly exciting, but Princess Peach: Showtime!, Another Code Recollection and Unicorn Overlord were personal highlights for me.
The Tomb Raider trilogy remaster and Prince of Persia also looked good.
Could help but be a little disappointed that the leaked DK and F-Zero games ended up not being full fledged games, either new, remastered or remade (I don’t count MvD). But F-Zero 99 is pretty fun.
I don’t care much for PMTYD, but it’ll be interesting to know how they’ve decided to handle some of the characters.
Also disappointed in no Metroid news, Prime 4, remasters or otherwise.
