Nice. Looking forward to it. These booster packs spark a little Mario Kart fire for my family each time.

Not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited for a Christmas MK8 course.

Sure is turning into Mario Kart Ultimate!

I wish the new courses looked as good as the original courses. And I also wish they weren't leaning so heavily into the mobile courses... but they're including some fun courses in this pack that I'm excited to try.

And at a certain point it struck me that with nearly every Rainbow Road course existing in this game, it's becoming the ULTIMATE Mario Kart game. It makes me feel like the next one needs to be different and special... like, the "Smash" Kart idea people keep hoping for.

Correction, Merry Mountain is also from Tour. A good deal of these are already in Mario Kart Tour and I assume are coming over simply because it saves them time and money by already having the assets.

Well if you wanna play the rumour game, MK9 IS going to be very different... Mr. Rumour also says it's going to be very multiplayer focused, so...

Personally I just really hope Nintendo makes their own VR for "Switch 2" and have games like these in full, great VR. I ordered the PSVR2, but I would rather have a lower quality Nintendo VR with their IPs since they fit so damn good!


I would LOVE some Nintendo VR, if they did it right. I frequently use VR on the PC.

Mario KArt, Star Fox, F-Zero, Pilot Wings etc... All perfect for VR!
