It includes eight new courses, including fan favorites like Mario Kart Wii's Rainbow Road, four new racers, a new music player feature, and more. With it being the final wave of DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it brings the game's course count up to 96, which is double the 48 available in the base game.
