Original story, 9/13/22:

We’re fast approaching the middle of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s ​​Booster Course Pass content. With two of the six promised waves of new courses already out, Nintendo has started teasing what players can expect with the third wave, due out this holiday season. During today’s Nintendo Direct, we learned the first two levels of the third wave of eight new tracks.

Appropriately, the first course we learned about for Wave 3 of the Booster Course Pass is Merry Mountain. This holiday themed track first made its Mario Kart Tour debut in 2020 as part of the Winter Tour. Meanwhile, for those looking for something not holiday themed, Nintendo is also releasing Peach Gardens, a track that first appeared in Mario Kart DS back in 2005.

Wave 1 brought fan favorites like Coconut Mall (Wii), Choco Mountain (N64) and Sky Garden (GBA), while Wave 2 gave us access to tracks like Kalimari Desert (N64), Mario Circuit 3 (SNES) and Mushroom Gorge (Wii) . Each wave also gave us two tracks from Mario Kart Tour, with Wave 2 also featuring an all-new track in Sky-High Sundae.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass Wave 3 is scheduled for release this holiday season.
