The second wave of latest DLC tracks for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has solely simply dropped, however already decided dataminers have managed to glean some fascinating tidbits from its code. The builders seemingly left tiny audio snippets of a number of upcoming DLC tracks hidden away within the code, presumably figuring that even when anybody did discover them they might be too transient to spoil the identification of the longer term additions.

Of course, as everyone knows, the Internet is full of people that will fortunately tackle such a problem. According to Twitter consumer Fishguy6564 and YouTuber BL, who each cite YouTuber recordreader as their source, the leftover prefetch information — which load earlier than the music itself begins — reveal the identification of 15 upcoming programs, together with the entire roster for Wave 3. In a powerful show of detective work, the prefetch information, which all quantities to snippets of audio solely a second or two lengthy in every case, has principally been matched to particular tracks from earlier Mario Kart video games.

As a consequence, it seems like Wave 3 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Pass will embody:

  • Mario Kart Tour’s London Loop, Berlin Byways, and Merry Mountain;
  • Mario Kart DS’ Peach Gardens;
  • Mario Kart Super Circuit’s Boo Lake (or presumably Broken Pier);
  • Mario Kart 7’s Rock Rock Mountain and Rainbow Road;
  • Mario Kart: Double Dash’s Waluigi Stadium

There are loads of different tracks revealed for Waves 4, 5, and 6 as properly, though Wave 3 is the one one which seems to have had its total lineup revealed. As with all leaks and rumors, although, even these seemingly rooted in information and code, the presence of those prefetch information in Wave 2’s code isn’t an ironclad assure that these would be the subsequent lot of DLC programs. Currently Waves 3-6 don’t even have particular launch dates past a plan to have all of them out by the top of subsequent yr.
