Rumor: Leak hints at which platform tracks will be in future Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course DLC waves
A previous leak may give an idea about which platforms will be represented in future waves of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC.
Back in March, after the debut of the first wave, Twitter user Fishguy6564 posted a video showing cups with potential prefixes. It seemed to suggest that Nintendo had already decided on the full lineup of tracks the game would be adding from prior titles. We still don’t have complete confirmation, but this week’s announcement of the second wave gives credence to the original speculation.
You’ll notice in the video below that the Turnip Cup was accurately predicted to have tracks from Mario Kart Tour, SNES, N64, and DS. The same goes for the Propeller Cup with courses from Tour, GBA, and Wii plus one spot not specified. The missing piece is for Sky-High Sundae, which will be appearing in Tour later on but will be showing up first in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and is likely why it was left blank.

Nintendo has officially announced that the Turnip Cup includes Tour New York Minute, SNES Mario Circuit 3, N64 Kalimari Desert, and DS Waluigi Pinball. The Propeller Cup features Tour Sydney Sprint, GBA Snow Land, Wii Mushroom Gorge, and Sky-High Sundae.
Assuming the rest of the video is accurate, the rest of the lineup is as follows:
– Rock Cup: Tour, DS, GBA, 3DS
– Moon Cup: Tour, GameCube, ?, 3DS
– Fruit Cup: Tour, Wii, DS, ?
– Boomerang Cup: Tour, GameCube, GBA, Tour
– Feather Cup: Tour, Wii, GBA, Tour
– Cherry Cup: Tour, GameCube, SNES, ?
– Acorn Cup: Tour, Wii, ?, ?
– Spiny Cup: Tour, GameCube, ?, Wii
A few tracks are not specified, which could mean that these are courses that will be debuting in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe similar to Sky-High Sundae. In the end though, everything here is speculation, and it’s always possible Nintendo could make changes along the way – especially since we have a long way to go until the end of the Booster Course Pass DLC.
