Nintendo has released the Booster Course Pass DLC for Mario Kart 8 deluxeand alongside the DLC there is an update that you need to play the new DLC.
Speaking of the new DLC, you have to download it manually from the eShop. Why? Because apparently there is no way to do it differently.
After updating your game to version 2.0, to purchase the Booster Course Pack you must go to the Switch eShop and search for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and manually download the new DLC.
If you’re a Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscriber, you’ll see an option to download the content on the game’s eShop page. But remember: it’s only free if you’re a subscription. If you’re not, the pass costs $24.99. And this is just the first wave of the DLC as it only includes the Golden Dash Cup, Lucky Cat Cup and eight courses remastered from the Mario Kart series. A total of 48 revised courses will be released in six waves by the end of 2023.
What to expect with the new update, not only does it support the new DLC, but it also fixed an issue where a communication error occurred when 12 people matched during online play. If you want to play the game online, you must apply the new update whether you have bought the DLC or not.
The update also includes fixes for issues that improve gaming experience and other content not listed.
