During the Direct broadcast today, Nintendo gave Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fans an update on the latest wave of DLC.

Wave 4, arriving this Spring 2023, will contain the new course Yoshi's Island and also adds in the new (but old character) Birdo, who previously made an appearance in the GameCube release, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.

Nintendo didn't give us a more specific date, but we imagine it will be sometime soon — the last wave launched at the beginning of December, after all.

Are you happy with the new course and the return of Birdo? Let us know!
