That makes me think they might be going all out on the final two waves.

Well I hope so - mind you at least I won't necessarily know how inaccurate Bangkok is. Looking at the list of Mario Kart Tour tracks, it looks like there are 2 more cities that we haven't had yet (so Wave 5 it is) and one more unique Tour track (so Wave 5 it is). Maybe the last wave will be mega-new stuff? It'd be a nice surprise - and don't get me wrong, I'm loving that essentially Mario Kart has doubled in size; nothing's terrible.

I did see it mentioned the other day that they might do a Smash Bros and decide to add more.

I'm going to ask the stupid question: how did you find this out?

I can believe this. I can also believe that it'll be a wave of seven city tracks and a Rainbow Road. The Nintendo that's both made 8 and brought over the Tour tracks could do anything at this point really.

My thinking: the current plan is six waves only, but if the Switch 2 is delayed until later into 2024/25 they might keep pumping out tracks to keep the punters happy.

Ah, to be honest I think that's probably just a slightly unclear sentence on Nintendo's part - I think the current wave of waves is all that we'll wave for a bit.

Also apologies from the old man who didn't pick the same course everyone else did, and then ran out of time while they were texting an apology so it happened again

Also - I just noticed from my own screenshots that the 8 cups originally included in Mario Kart 8 have bespoke trophy designs, but everything from the Wii U DLC onwards is just a logo plastered on an identical goblet. About as minor a complaint as you can get, but still . . .

They were a Club Nintendo reward at one point as well, you could get literal trophies in the same styles for your home, guess it goes back to the age old problem, when you're on top you rest on your laurels a bit and that's what they've done with Mario Kart.

Got around to playing the first of the new bunch. I like the sink course. Big Tinykin vibes.

I still have the badges for each of the cups through Club Nintendo I believe.

I do miss the quality of the old rewards system, always wanted the LUIGIS MANSION 2 statue if anyone remembers that!

Yeah that was great, it was one of those ones they annoyingly added just after I'd used a few points, I did manage to get the one with all the main Mario cast on it though.

Any faves out of the final set? I think it's the Bowser's Castle track for me, it feels like one of the few proper revamps with acknowledgement of 8's unique properties.

All in all the Booster Pass has been a funny one, with the main Tour tracks and the Tourification of the non-Tour tracks feeling a little underwhelming (and those trophies being indicative of the lower effort put in), but all the same: it's 48 new tracks! In Mario Kart 8! How good is that!? So yes, very strange feeling.

Oh, the Bowser one was popular on the day! Pretty much for the reasons you list.
I enjoyed returning to DK Mountain, too.

I guess I feel the same as you overall. Having more Mario kart 8 was a net positive, but while i enjoy seeing the Tour tracks I didn't much like driving them. I really hope MK9 has consistent laps, or laps which transform in interesting ways rather than just holographic detours appearing across what was previously a road and not loading in until you're two metres away.

Yep the holographic detours are actually rubbish.  I don't think I'd mind if say the Berlin Wall came thundering down across part of the track, but - nope.

Still we got Ninja Hideaway, so that's nice.

I was complaining last week that I woke up right as you left!
I feel a bit better about my results against you after seeing everyone else's.

I think Muss and Cappa are the only two that have bested me overall (last time I checked at least) and its bothered me since the early days, if anything I've lost even more ground in that time, ah well at least I still have Mario Strikers.

I'm gonna make more of an effort to play this I think, it's always enjoyable even with randoms so I don't want things to end with last of the DLC courses, which I've not even played the majority of it because I'd seemingly rather play Moo Moo Meadows/Christmas Time/Dry Dry Desert.
