Put cart in a switch console that has never had mario kart installed. Version 2.4 on cart, and all booster pack races available with no download required. Booster pack 6 icons are there in the game, but the Booster pack 6 races need to be downloaded on release date.
Everything comes up in English, and my old cloud save works also.
Just like the Japanese Zelda release, great way to get (almost) cart complete version of this great game.
So you are looking for a real "review" about this particular version of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? (Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + Booster Course Pass (Multi-Language)
Then look no more, I got you covered.
Ok, I saw that one thread on nintendoswitch subreddit. I could not find a 100 % clear answer. I already own both the physical (europe) and digital version of MK8D.
Since this product was available again and I wanted it anyway, here we go:
Useful for comparison later:
Test 1: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Europe, Digital, with Booster Course Pass [excluding Wave 6]: version 2.4.0, uses 10,2 GB of data. I could not figure out how to re-download MK8D without the DLC files.
Test 2: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Europe, Physical, Original Release: version 1.0.0.
Test 3: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Europe, Physical, with update to version 2.4.0, uses 3,4 GB of data. In this test I have no access to the Booster Course Pass content ingame (drivers and courses/cups).
Like I already mentioned, I can not find a way to redownload just the purchased BCP alone. So I can not test out the physical + BCP for the file size.
And now about THIS game card version:
Does it use the same icon/set of data as my Europe MK8 Deluxe version? Well yes!
While I can not talk about the american/US version (ESRB rated games) I THINK!! it should be the same one as for europe. However I can not guarantee anything.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Japan, Physical, Original Release: version 2.4.0. In this test I do have access to the Booster Course Pass Content. According to the software data in the system: 0,0 MB used. IT IS ON CARD (excluding Wave 6)!!!
Of course I deleted the "old europe MK8D" software before. I don`t think I have done anything wrong now during testing. And BTW: If I take out THIS cart with version 2.4.0 my switch reverts back to 1.0.0.
No updates available, as it is already the newest version! We have to see, however, HOW it does work with Wave 6 soon. BUT it is nice to have a cart with version 2.4.0 instead of 1.0.0 now.
Note: According to nintendo.com the filesize of the Booster Course Pass alone is 2 GB, without Wave 6 again.
Yes, you can buy this game without regrets, if you want to have a more up to date cart version of MK8D.
