Today sees the release of the second wave of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, also known as the Booster Course Pass, for the wildly successful Nintendo Switch game (5th August).
Later today, those who purchased the DLC—through either the Mario Kart 8 Booster Course Pass or the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pass—will be able to race over eight brand-new tracks. Since the first wave in March, which greatly revived the game and brought many players back to Mario Kart, fans have been anticipating this second wave with great anticipation.

Mario Kart 8 DLC Wave 2 Price
The new wave two music will be available to play in two distinct ways on Nintendo Switch systems later this week, according to Nintendo. The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass may now be downloaded as a paid Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership or purchased separately from the Nintendo eShop for $24.99.
The second option has no additional cost and gives you access to all six waves of the eight new courses that will be added to the game through the end of 2023. The main distinction between the two is that with the Online expansion pack, you can access all of the courses up until the end of your subscription; however, with the Booster Course Pack, you own it indefinitely.

Mario Kart 8 DLC Wave 2 Release Date
The Mario Kart 8 DLC Wave 2 Tracks are scheduled for sale on August 4th, 2022. You need to own a handheld console to access and purchase the new Booster courses because the additional content is only available on Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo hasn’t provided a specific release date for the new courses, so players will need to keep an eye on the Nintendo eShop for the download. According to the Japanese gaming giant, it is difficult to estimate when the newest course will be released in the UK because DLC for games is not supplied at a regular cadence.
As the release date approaches, more information may be revealed, so fans should ensure they have everything ready to view the new content.
Mario Kart 8 DLC Wave 2 Time
Since Mario Kart 8 DLC Wave 2 Time has not yet been announced, players are advised to keep an eye on the store. Additionally, new music is introduced for the switch systems to play. The courses above have been approved:
- New York Minute (Tour)
- Mario Circuit 3 (SNES)
