Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass can be played locally or online without purchase
Nintendo has answered the question as to who exactly will be able to play the new tracks in the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass when the DLC releases next month.
According to the official site, the courses can be accessed starting on March 18 locally or online in Friends and Rivals races, “even if only one player owns the Booster Course Pass or has access to it as part of a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.” Then starting on March 22, these tracks will show up in the Random selection when playing Global or Regional races with anyone online.
The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass intends to add a total of 48 tracks. Nintendo will be releasing six waves, with each one featuring eight courses. The full rollout should be done and over with by the end of 2023. Nintendo announced the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass last week, which came as a surprise for some as the title is nearing its five-year anniversary on Switch.
Fans can begin experiencing the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass content on March 18, 2022. We have the full list of tracks in the first wave here.
