Mario Kart 8 Deluxe-DLC finally meets me one of my biggest wishes after five years

On March 18, the first part of the large route booster DLC for Mario Kart 8 deluxe appears. And that feels still a bit unreal for me, because that day is a waiting time to finish me, which has now taken almost five years.

Because quasi since the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the switch I hoped inwardly that Nintendo delivers content replenishment for this fantastic fun racer. “They will do that guaranteed,” I thought again and again. Because with the first two extensions for the “normal” Mario Kart 8, the developer team had basically delivered quite perfect DLCs in the past, which I had already appreciated in my column.

Column to Mario Kart 8 DLC 2 – That’s how DLC goes


A DLC I honestly expected much earlier

That’s why it was completely clear to me that this can not have been the end of the racing flagpole yet, after all, the Mario Kart 8 history offers so many legendary routes that have been super been porous in Mario Kart 8.

For at the 48 slopes available so far, I had a satisfied at some point and since the price variety is an absolute highlight of the game, it was clear to me: I really want more!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still regularly on the board for Tobi for many years. For him, the most recent Mario Kart offshoot has long been in a row with the series gives from the SNES or N64 and belongs to him a duty component of every (!) Switch game collection.

But from the regular support planned by me, nothing was not, but why, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe also sold as sliced ​​bread. Nevertheless, he never went away, this desire for route replenishment for Nintendos Fun-Racer, who is already a modern classic.

Here you can with the trailer to the DLC on the release:

All the greater, on the one hand, the joy, but on the other hand the irritation, as Nintendo at the beginning of the year actually announced the route pass. And that with 48 courses! Of course, the release is distributed over one and a half years and the quality of course needs to be knocked out, but what I wanted for years for Mario Kart 8 is finally reality on this Friday.

And that fulfills me especially with great anticipation and the certainty that the lifetime of Mario Kart 8 in my switch will increase significantly again – even if I as an absolute frosting also a few new drivers and drivers from the Nintendo universe Wanted.

But who knows: maybe a driver booster pass…
