The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass will soon be halfway to the finish line, as the third of six eight-course waves has been confirmed for a December 7 launch date.
Wave 3 of the Booster Course Pass will, like the previous waves, add eight more courses to the Mario Kart 8 roster, with all of them coming from previous games in the franchise. Three of Wave 3’s tracks first debuted in Mario Kart Tour on mobile devices, two more come from Mario Kart 7 on 3DS, and the final three come from Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart DS, and Mario Kart Super Circuit on Game Boy Advance.
