These tracks would complete the waves that Nintendo has planned for this year. Next year would bring with it another three waves, which would have an additional 24 tracks.

To avid fans of this mascot kart racer, this pass really offers a lot of value. Players basically get a collection of the best Mario Kart tracks from every game released yet in one place. This reminds us of how Nintendo released Sumer Smash Bros. Ultimate as the one Smash Bros. game after which players would now have to buy any other game ever.
