Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Booster Course Pass icons Nintendo Switch Online

Original (8/1): A new batch of user icons are being made available for Nintendo Switch Online based on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in celebration of the Booster Course Pass. We have a look at some of the designs that are planned above.

This isn’t the first time that the racer has been a featured title. However, it appears that Nintendo has prepared a fresh set of designs, and the first wave is available now. Additional waves with different designs will be going live each week. You’ll be able to claim Mario Kart 8 Deluxe icons until August 8 at 5:59 PM PT / 8:59 PM ET.

Aside from being a Nintendo Switch Online member, you also need to get involved with My Nintendo. Each icon costs Platinum Points from the rewards program. Characters are 10 points while backgrounds and frames are 5 each. Obtaining points can be done by completing missions like playing a supported online title or backing up save data to the cloud.

Also remember that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe isn’t the only game with icons on Nintendo Switch Online. Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons have designs available as well.
