Datamined music may reveal future Mario Kart 8 DLC tracks

Placeholder music files for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have been discovered following the latest update which may hint at future Booster Course Pass DLC tracks.

The “prefetch” files were discovered by YouTuber record player but the results were posted on YouTube by BL–Going through VGC–and it looks like they match music tracks from classic Mario Kart games.

Now Playing: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — Course Pass Booster – Wave 2 Release Date – Nintendo Switch

The 50-second video contains each of the 15 discovered music files but only the first seconds of each track are played. This is because “prefetch” files are designed to start music quickly until the full song is playing in the background. It looks like the YouTuber was also able to identify each of the songs from their classic Mario Kart tracks. The list of tracks can be found below and may arrive in future waves of Booster Course Pass DLC:

  • London Loop (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Peach Gardens (DS)
  • Boo Lake / Broken Pier (GBA)
  • Rock Rock Mountain (3DS)
  • Berlin Byways (Mario Kart Tour)

  • Singapore Speedway (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Los Angeles Tours (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Sunset Wilds (GBA)
  • Bangkok Rush (Mario Kart Tour)

The Booster Course DLC was announced earlier this year and will include 48 courses. The first wave was released shortly after on March 18 and included the first eight tracks. The second wave was released on August 4 and features eight courses, including an all-new circuit called Sky-High Sundae. The Booster Course DLC costs $25 on its own. It’s also included with the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass at no additional cost.

Elsewhere, Mario Kart 9 is rumored to be in the works and will include a “new twist”. According to Kantan Games consultant Dr. Serkan Toto, the game is currently “in active development” and Nintendo may tease the new title this year.
