Latest Mario Kart 8 DLC secures previous leaks on platform origins of future tracks

Shortly after Nintendo released the first wave of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass DLC in March, data-miners uncovered what appeared to be a near-complete list of platforms that each new wave would pull tracks from – and the recent arrival of Wave 2 appears around this one confirming the leak and giving fans a solid base for the dizzying classic track speculation to come.

After the release of Wave 1, data miner Fishguy6564 shared a video of the Mario Kart 8 track selection screen with the ten remaining cups of the Booster Course Pass unlocked, complete with the platform origin of each included track. For example, Wave 2’s then-unreleased Turnip Cup featured four tracks from Mario Kart Tour, SNES, N64, and DS, while Propeller Cup featured tracks from Tour, GBA, Wii, and a pending finale defined course.

Following this week’s release of Wave 2, we now know that these leaked platforms align perfectly with Mario Kart 8’s newly expanded track list. The final track list for the Turnip Cup is New York Minute (Mario Kart Tour), Mario Cart Circuit 3 (SNES), Kalimari Desert (N64) and Waluigi Pinball (DS), while the Propeller Cup brings Sydney Sprint (Tour). Snow Land (GBA), Mushroom Gorge (Wii) and Sky-High Sundae (Tour). The latter in particular debuts as part of the Booster Pack but is coming to the tour later, which could explain its missing label in the leak.

Where is all this taking us? Well, obviously nowhere near a complete track listing for the remaining four waves of Booster Pass. But it provides a solid framework for future speculation about what these updates might bring.

Assuming no seismic shifts in future plans, it looks like we could get two tracks from Tour in Wave 3 alongside two 3DS tracks, a DS track, a GameCube track, a GBA track and a still expect undefined track. Wave 4, meanwhile, will likely feature three more tour tracks, plus tracks from Wii, DS, GameCube, GBA and one final mystery addition.

Three more tour tracks (and one other mysterious addition) appear to be on the way in Wave 5, alongside a track each from the Wii, GBA, Gamecube and SNES games, and things will likely continue in Wave 6 with two more Tour completed tracks, two Wii tracks and one GameCube track. The remaining three are not yet defined.

Here you go! My guess is that there are ten more tour tracks to come, four Wii tracks, four GameCube tracks, two 3DS tracks, two DS tracks, three GBA tracks and one SNES track, with the remaining six unclear are. All you have to do is pick your favorite courses from these platforms, cross your fingers and hope Nintendo grants your wish.
