The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Wave 5 DLC start time has arrived along with its bevy of new tracks and characters. However, this latest high-octane, shell-throwing expansion is slightly more exciting than previous waves since it’s bringing a brand new course that’s never been featured before in any of the previous installments.
Of course, the Mario Kart 8 Wave 5 DLC release date also sees the return of three beloved racers in Kamek, Petey Piranha, and Wiggler, which makes this occasion one that’s even more worth celebrating. So if you want to join in on the competitive festivities, then we’ve covered when you can expect it to begin here.

The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Wave 5 DLC start time is reportedly slated for 10 AM JST according to an official blog post on the Nintendo Japan website.

If you want to access all of the new tracks and characters that this expansion brings, then you’ll need to purchase the Booster Course Pass through the Nintendo eShop. This will also give you access to the four previous pieces of DLC as well, so you’ll be able to dominate on even more tracks than before. Alternatively, you can also opt for a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription instead since the expansion comes free with this membership package.
