Mario Kart racers just learned that Wave 2 of the Booster Course DLC is coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe very soon. But that isn’t all the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe community has learned this past week.

Earlier this year, Twitter user fishguy6564 “cracked” the Booster Course DLC when it was first announced, granting an early glimpse at other tracks that may come in future waves.

At the time, many gamers were quite skeptical. They didn’t feel the tracks in the leak were varied enough and even questioned if it was “too easy” for fishguy to get such information. But now, it appears that fishguy may have been right all along.

In the original tweet, fishguy shared a video that showed an upcoming cup called the Propeller Cup. He found that it would have a map from Mario Kart Tour, as well as the GBA and Wii versions, and then a mystery course with no known origin. This eerily lines up with the official information revealed about Wave 2.

Wave 2, which is set to finally release on August 4, will have the following tracks:

The mystery track is Sky-High Sundae, a new track made just for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Seeing so many similarities between the leak and the official reveal, the Mario Kart community is a little less skeptical now. And if fishguy is to be believed at this point, he has also revealed some tracks set to come in future waves.

While the specific tracks are still a mystery, fishguy has an idea of what each upcoming cup will consist of. With 32 maps still on the way, there’s a lot of anticipation from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe players. Here’s what to possibly expect:

  • Rock Cup: Tour, DS, GBA, 3DS
  • Moon Cup: Tour, GameCube, ?, 3DS
  • Fruit Cup: Tour, Wii, DS, ?
  • Boomerang Cup: Tour, GameCube, GBA, Tour
  • Feather Cup: Tour, Wii, GBA, Tour
  • Cherry Cup: Tour, GameCube, SNES, ?
  • Acorn Cup: Tour, Wii, ?, ?
  • Spiny Cup: Tour, GameCube, ?, Wii

One of the most interesting parts of the potential reveal are the question marks. The same question mark pattern was used for Sky-High Sundae, which ended up being a brand new track. This means there may be more never-before-seen tracks in the works for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
