Some courses remain relatively unchanged from the original game, while others are completely revamped, adding new routes and features such as Anti-Gravity and gliding
So far, the following Mario Kart games and courses have been included in the Booster Course Pass
Differences from Mario Kart 8
The game's concepts, tracks, racers, and vehicle parts are largely inspired by Mario Kart 8. These were kept and reused for the port version. However, there are a number of new features and differences from the original game. These are listed in the table below
In Grand Prix mode, twelve racers compete for first place in four-race cups. Racers are awarded points based on their finishing positions in races, and the racer with the most points at the end winsPoint SystemFinishing PlacesPoints Received1st15
Time trials allow players to compete for the fastest time possible, either alone or against a ghost. This mode cannot be played with more than one player
See Staff Ghosts for more information.
VS. Race allows racers to race according to their own set of rules. It is not limited to a single cup, so racers can choose any course (if enabled). VS. Races can be played locally with up to four people at the same time. It cannot be played online, but tournaments serve a similar purpose

One of the most significant changes in the game is the revamped Battle Mode, which has resulted in the removal of Mario Kart 8 battle courses. It reverts to the traditional arena-based combat system. In contrast to the previous games, each player starts with five balloons rather than three. Another feature added to this mode is the ability to tell which character hit whom, which appears at the bottom of the screen
The ability to respawn after all balloons have been popped returns from Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 7. This reduces a player's total score by half and causes the player to respawn with three balloons rather than five
There are five different Battle Modes in the game, which are listed below

Note. The following datamines are subject to change, but because the prefix datamine is no longer accurate, we are unsure of their placements; however, we do know we will receive the following courses at some point
If the prefix datamine holds true, we could get 1 more Super Mario Kart course, no more Mario Kart 64 courses, and 2 more Mario Kart courses. Super Circuit, four new Mario Kart courses. Double Dash. , 1 more Mario Kart DS course, 3 more Mario Kart Wii courses, no more Mario Kart 7, 8 more Mario Kart Tour courses, and 5 more "new" courses
In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, there are eight distinct Battle Tracks that are used in Battle Mode. These take the place of the repurposed tracks from the original Mario Kart 8. There are five new (nitro) Battle Courses and three retro Battle Courses. Surprisingly, only two of the Battle Courses (Lunar Colony and Battle Stadium) have Anti-Gravity
All of the items from Mario Kart 8 have been reintroduced. Racers can now carry two items, as in Mario Kart. Double Dash. Some items from previous Mario Kart games have reappeared
What's new in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
The table below contains items from previous games that were not present in the original Mario Kart 8
Returning from Mario Kart is the Double Item Box. Like regular Item Boxes, Double Item Boxes give items. However, as the name implies, it provides two items rather than one.
The Cape Feather, which originated in Super Mario Kart, is used to hop roughly twice as high as the drivers are normally able to, as well as cause them to spin when they do jump. It is only available in Battle Mode.
BooUnleashes Boo, who temporarily turns the holder invisible, rendering the holder immune to enemy attacks, and steals an opponent's item. It's back from Mario Kart DS.
Returning Mario Kart 8 Items
Boomerang FlowerThe Boomerang Flower allows players to fire three Boomerangs at other racers, with similar effects to bananas. They also return to you, hence the name.
The Potted Piranha Plant sits in front of a kart and can be used to attack other players in the same way that a Super Leaf did in Mario Kart 7.
The Super Horn can be used to deflect incoming projectiles, including the elusive Spiny Shell, which could not be deflected in previous games.
Crazy 8The Crazy Eight is very similar to the Lucky 7, with the exception of a coin item being added to the seven items that circle around the kart. A Green Shell, a Red Shell, a Banana, a Bob-omb, a Blooper, a Star, a Mushroom, and a Coin are among them. If a specific item is in front of your kart, you use it in the Crazy Eight.
BananaBananas can be dropped on the course, causing any racers who come into contact with them to spin out.
Triple BananasUnlike previous games, three bananas rotate around the kart rather than remaining in a line behind it. They can be dropped one at a time.
Green Shells can be shot along the track and bounce off the walls until they collide with a racer.
Triple Green Shells, like Triple Bananas, rotate around the kart and can be used one at a time.
Mushrooms provide players with speed boosts that can be used to traverse off-road terrain.
Triple MushroomsThree Mushrooms can be used individually to provide three speed boosts. In time trials, three mushrooms are given automatically. They circle the kart and, unlike other games, can be stolen.
Bob-ombs are similar to shells in that they can be thrown, but they cause a large explosion that knocks over vehicles.
CoinCoins increase the base speed of your vehicle. Aside from being found on tracks, two Coins can be given to players through item boxes.
Red Shells behave similarly to Green Shells, but they home in on opponents and are destroyed if they collide with walls.
Triple Red Shells are similar to Triple Green Shells, but they have Red Shells instead.
BlooperBloopers spray ink on all players ahead of the user, obscuring vision. While it only lasts a few seconds, it can be removed sooner by using a Mushroom, going underwater, or using a boost pad.
Fire FlowerFire Flowers allow players to fire fireballs for a limited time. Fireballs cause players to spin out and can be lethal weapons in close races.
For a limited time, StarStars allow players to be invincible, travel off-road without losing speed, and run through racers with no impairment.
Golden Mushrooms provide players with temporary unlimited speed boosts.
When used, lightning strikes all of the other racers, causing them to shrink and lose speed. Lower-ranked racers are the first to return to normal, while higher-ranked racers are the last.
Spiny Shells travel on the ground in pursuit of the racer in first place, capable of knocking out any racers in their path. It can only be avoided by using a Mushroom at the right time or blocked with the Super Horn.
Bullet BillThe Bullet Bill transforms racers into massive Bullet Bills with effects similar to Stars, but they are automatically steered at high speeds. Players can slightly alter the trajectory of the Bullet Bill by moving left and right, allowing them to swerve into other players.
