How to set up the Booster Course Pass in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
For the sake of clarity, let's quickly explain how the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass is set up. In total there will be 48 remastered tracks from the previous eight installments (the seven console originals and Mario Kart Tour), but they won't be released all at once; they'll be released in a staggered fashion in a total of six waves, from March 2022 to the end of 2023. In the following Nintendo Life video you can see a gameplay of those released today.
