One of the great surprises of the Nintendo Direct this February has been Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the game of records. When all users demanded an eventual Mario Kart 9, Nintendo has chosen to turn its successful title —capable of selling more than 43 million copies since its premiere on Nintendo Switch— into a kind of Mario Kart Ultimate. To the 48 circuits already included another 48 tracks will be added with the so-called Extra Tracks Pass, which will consist of six installments of eight remastered circuits each. The first installment, scheduled for March, has already confirmed its eight circuits.
These are the first 8 tracks of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bonus Tracks Pass
Next March 18, 2022 the first two additional cups of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Extra Tracks Pass will be released. Each cup with four circuits; each installment with two cups (eight circuits) in a total of six installments between now and 2023. That is, a total of 48 remastered circuits from the eight previous video games in the saga (that is correct, eight installments, since circuits will also be included original Mario Kart Tour). All tracks will be selectable in all game modes; both individual and in local and online multiplayer.
