Mario Kart Fans 'Disgusted' By Nintendo Direct Announcement

Mario Kart Fans 'Disgusted' By Nintendo Direct Announcement

Nintendo raced into our lives with the first Direct of 2022, and safe to say, there's not much gas left in the tank for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Although it's the best-selling Switch game of all time, we're not exactly excited to jump back behind the wheel thanks to the latest announcement.

Instead of the widely rumoured Mario Kart 9 (or possible Mario Kart X), Nintendo confirmed we're getting a paid DLC for Deluxe. Even five years after the game first revved into our lives, Nintendo has shown it has no shame in stripping the tread from the tires.

What Is The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC?

While we thought our Deluxe DLC days were behind us, the expansion will unveil eight classic courses from the franchise's past. That's all well and good, but coming in six waves, it means there are a whopping 48 new tracks to race your pals on. The problem is, it'll cost you.

The first wave of tracks comes out on March 18 and includes old favourites like Coconut Mall, Tokyo Blur, and the classic Choco Mountain. Unfortunately, the Booster Course pass also comes with a hefty price tag of $23.99. As you can imagine, the Twitterverse wasn't kind to the fact we'll have to pay to revisit these old pals.

 

What Have Fans Said About The Mario Kart DLC?

Remembering it'll cost your own case for a trip down memory lane, some were angrier than Evil Luigi. "LMFAO releasing dlc through all of 2023, they said f**k Mario kart 9," said one. Another fumed, "Paid DLC for a 5 year old game. So we are never getting a MK9 huh?"

A third simply concluded, "This is disgusting. What's the price? $30?" Perhaps the only bonus is that it will be included in the Switch Online Subscription like the Animal Crossing DLC. Still, it's just giving some old courses a facelift. So yeah, it looks like your dreams of Mario Kart 9 have taken a pit stop.
