The Booster Course Pass Wave 2 will launch on August 4, and it promises eight new courses, similar to the first wave that was released back in March.

Since MK8's launch in 2017, it has become the Switch's best-selling title. The upcoming DLC will expand the game even further, adding courses for two new Grand Prix tournaments - the Turnip Cup and the Propeller Cup.

The Turnip Cup will include the tracks Tour New York Minute, SNES Mario Circuit 3, N64 Kalimari Desert, and DS Waluigi Pinball.
