In case you forgot, the second wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC dropped right now. That means eight extra racetracks can be found if you are going to buy the Booster Course Pass. Those eight tracks are New York Minute, Mario Circuit 3, Kalimari Desert, Waluigi Pinball, Sydney Sprint, Snow Land, Mushroom Gorge, and Sky-High Sundae.

Alongside these new additions, Nintendo determined to update one of many earlier DLC tracks and make one minor tweak in response to fan criticism. Namely, it’s made the automobiles in Coconut Mall move once more.

For these unaware, Coconut Mall has just a few automobiles pushed by Shy Guys that act as obstacles. Originally, in Mario Kart Wii, the automobiles would move forwards and backwards so that you’d should weave previous them and keep away from crashing into them. When the monitor was added to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the automobiles didn’t move in any respect, a lot to some followers’ chagrin.

Despite it being such a small element, Nintendo evidently took discover of this and adjusted it so that they not solely move, however in addition they spin spherical quickly, making them extra harmful. While some suppose this isn’t a element value thanking Nintendo for, others are shocked it bothered to make the change and are happy that their complaints weren’t unheard.

This isn’t the one change based on the game’s patch notes (which have been shared by Nintendo Everything), however they’re additionally extremely minor. For instance, the time between merchandise bins regenerating has been diminished, so that they’ll reappear faster after a participant has grabbed one, and the time it takes for a participant to have the ability to choose up a coin that one other participant has dropped has been shortened as nicely.

It stays to be seen whether or not Nintendo will update different racetracks sooner or later, although if this instance is something to go by, it might require a specific amount of fan demand. As for future DLC tracks, Nintendo hasn’t formally confirmed any or shared a date for when Wave 3 will arrive. But, datamining efforts could have uncovered not less than a few of the new additions.
