With the Mii Tour entering its final lap in Nintendo's mobile racer, we have got our first proper look at what is around the corner for Mario Kart Tour. The game's next chapter will focus on Peach and Daisy, as the Princess Tour gets off the starting line on 31st May.
This one brings back two classic courses to fit with the princess theme. From Mario Kart Wii, we will see a fresh take on the Wii Daisy Circuit, and GBA Peach Circuit will be returning from Mario Kart Super Circuit.
As we have come to expect with these tour announcements, the reveal of the new courses also brought with it news of the upcoming Mii racing suits. This time, the outfits will also have a princess focus (seems fitting, really) as both the Daisy and Pink Racing Suits drift into the game from the end of the month.
You can get a look at the upcoming racing suits as well as a teaser for the outfits that are coming next Tour (could the one on the right really be Waluigi?) in the video below.
Are you excited about the princess takeover? Let us know in the comments.
Allways had a softspot for daisy circuit.. it's basically a monaco city circuit.. the shorcut then felt rahter unique... but i guess it won't really stand out anymore due to all the city circuits..
GCN Waluigi Stadium is the only Booster Course Pass track that is currently exclusive to the pass and there's always been at least 1 track exclusive to the pass at any point in time. So the Waluigi tease for the Mii outfits strongly suggests that wave 5 of the pass will be revealed before June 8th (that date is when the next tour is teased).
Hopefully if it does get revealed before then, it's via a general Direct.
@Grumblevolcano This is the kind of math I like
I know I'm a broken record, but I'm gonna keep beating this dead horse until I get charged with animal abuse. Nintendo should put every Tour track into Mario Kart 8. Please, please, please, please, PLEASE do a second Booster Course Pass with 48 more tracks. I don't want it to end. They're already adding new characters, which is fantastic, but how about some new battle maps, vehicle parts, and alternate costumes while they're at it? I will pay literally any amount of money, Nintendo. I've always said my favorite video game of all-time is Paper Mario: TTYD, but Mario Kart 8 is getting dangerously close to surpassing it. Sure, it doesn't generate the same amount of hype as getting your favorite third-party character in Smash. But Smash isn't a game I keep coming back to nearly as often as Mario Kart.
Nice to see Daisy Circuit come back, hopefully it's a good remake. Especially as it will be the base if it comes to the Booster Course Pass.
Some of the Tour remakes have been a little sterile and that affects the DLC
But they have been getting better! Just a shame they won't patch up the old ones.
All this lovely stuff to come for the Mario Kart 8 expansion pass/DLC, can't wait.
Looking forward to racing on these tracks in Tour for now and potentially in 8 Deluxe later!
@Grumblevolcano Interesting, hope you're right about the potential date for Wave 5 and even better if also for a general Direct!
@Not_Soos Couldn't agree more also considering that unfortunately Tour will eventually shut down so the less stuff left behind in it the better!
I still want then to save some stuff for the next game, where they get the full remake treatment, like in the initial Mario Kart 8 DLC packs.
I remember driving round the Yoshi's island course for the first time, brought genuine tears to my eyes, all that nostalgia flooding back, and had to stop many times just to look at all that new detais etc.
Booster course pass lap 2
@Grumblevolcano They haven't even started going over any of the Wave 4 tracks in the Switch news feed. Wave 5 is aways off
FINALLY WEDDING PEACH RETURNS! Been waiting ages for a rerun.
@Not_Soos God no, we need Mario Kart 9 yesterday with actual new mechanics. Port Tour stuff to that if they must, not a 10 year old game that's long overstayed its welcome. You want to talk beating a dead horse, that's what Nintendo's been doing to MK8.
@PikaPhantom For Europe they have started the wave 4 tracks on the Switch news section:
And wave 4 was announced after the Switch news section had gone through 3 of the wave 3 tracks (Tour London Loop, GBA Boo Lake, Tour Berlin Byways)
@Grumblevolcano Ah. An announcement could definitely come soon, but I don't think they'd reveal anything outside of a presentation
patiently waiting for Carl from Nebraska to respond to Not_Soos.
I always loved these two tracks. There's no reason, I just love them! So it's fun getting to play on them again!
(I also have accidentally amassed a full daisy set and a full peach set through pipes. So this ought to be my tour! 😁)
Great content for the expansion pass, like the racing suits. I always liked the daisy circuit, and Peach circuit.
