Mario Kart 8’s Booster course pass skips a classic game

Mario Kart: Double Dash is a fan favorite of the series, although none of its tracks have been included in the Booster Course Pass so far.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe‘s Booster Course Pass, is a DLC that brings back iconic tracks from the history of the series. However, Double dash has been completely ignored so far. Although its 20th anniversary is fast approaching, the GameCube entry has yet to surface a single track in the DLC. Worse still, according to leaks, traces of Double dash may be absent for some time.

Most booster courses Nots lessons are taken from Mario Kart Tourwhich itself mainly includes tracks available in Mario Kart 7. This puts Double dash disadvantaged. Just two retro tracks from the GameCube iteration of Mario Kart are included in 3DS and mobile games. This means that more work should be put into remastering other tracks in the game as faithfully as possible. Mario Kart 8The producers intend the DLC to be. Curiously, even though Double dash did not have much representation in Mario Kart 7GBAs Super Tour had even less – just Bowser’s Castle 1 – but currently has two in the Booster Course Pass. Furthermore, one of Super Tour tracks included in the DLC, Snow Land, is currently not in Roundsimilar to Shroom Ridge’s Mario Kart DS. Although these tracks will likely appear in Round with these designs ultimately, it begs the question of why the GameCube entry hasn’t yet received similar treatment.

Mario Kart: Double Dash’s current exclusion from the booster course pass is questionable

Perhaps one of the reasons for Double dashthe limited representation of Booster Course Pass is that it has four tracks in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe already. With sense DLC Mario Kart 8 will have a ridiculous number of tracks, Double dash tracks are unavoidable at some point, so this doesn’t hold water. This argument is further refuted by the fact that the original Mario Kart 8 The DLC made sure that every game except the SNES entry had at least three backtracks. As of this DLC, the 3DS also had four tracks and already had the mediocre return of the Toad Circuit in the Booster Course Pass for a total of five returnees.

Mario Kart: double dash is one of the most popular entries in the series, in part due to its unique mechanic of having two playable characters; one for driving and one for using items. In addition to the courses that returned for Mario Kart 7, the game is home to a variety of popular tracks, like DK Mountain and Waluigi Stadium. With rumors hinting that Waluigi Stadium was to be included in Wave 3 of the Booster Course Pass before being delayed, fans of Double dash will have to wait until at least Wave 4 of the DLC for all of the returning tracks from that game to show up.

Tracks of Double dash will almost certainly be included in Mario Kart 8 Deluxeit is Booster Course Pass finally, but the choice to leave some in the DLC so far is certainly unexpected. Nintendo can realize the hype behind some of these long-awaited tracks and use it as a way to keep people excited for the next reveal. This unfortunately has the unintended side effect of frustrating fans of this game. Hope the best bits of this Double dash are able to return as soon as possible. Otherwise, they will have to wait for the next entry in the Mario Kart series.
