In the wake of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass launch, a new wave of excitement has swept through the Mario Kart community. While the game bids farewell to its ten-year lifespan, it continues to attract players with its timeless appeal. To celebrate the recent DLC release, let’s delve into the unlockables it has to offer, even if they’re a bit scarce.
Unlockable Characters: Gold Mario Takes the Spotlight
In the realm of unlockable characters, Gold Mario steals the show. Serving as a swanky palette swap of Metal Mario, Gold Mario can be yours by conquering every 200cc cup with at least one star. It’s a challenge that adds a gleaming touch to your character lineup.
Unlockable Kart Parts: Crafting Your Perfect Ride
The quest for the perfect kart is every racer’s dream, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe offers a limited yet intriguing array of unlockable kart parts:
- Gold Standard Kart Piece: Clear every Mirror Mode cup with at least one star to unlock this stylish kart component.
- Gold Tires Kart Piece: Master the Time Trials by beating all Staff Ghosts in 150cc races. DLC courses need not apply for this achievement.
- Gold Glider Kart Piece: Amass 5,000 coins in your karting adventures to soar into the skies with this golden glider. It’s a testament to your dedication on the racetrack.
Kart Parts: Easy or Ridiculous, Your Choice!
Unlocking kart parts in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a coin-collecting adventure. For every 50 coins you amass, a new part becomes yours. The method is up to you: the easy way involves replaying Baby Park to snag coins effortlessly, while the more ambitious can set up four controllers with Smart Steering and Auto-Acceleration on. Race through Mute City or Big Blue on 200cc, strategically collecting coins for faster unlocks.
Future Hopes: Mii Costumes and Beyond
While Mii Costumes add another layer of unlockables, tied to amiibo, they remain a topic for a future post. As Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues to capture hearts, one can’t help but wonder if the next installment will bring back a richer array of unlockable characters, adding a dash of surprise to the iconic racing franchise.
As players embark on the quest for Gold Mario and the perfect kart, the limited yet exciting world of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe unlockables continues to enchant both newcomers and seasoned racers alike. May your races be thrilling, and your karts be ever-stylish!
