Courtesy of the Booster Course Pass, we now have some Wave 2 courses joining the fun in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. These include courses based on real world locations like New York Minute, as well as nostalgic courses like Wii Mushroom Gorge and even crazy ones like Sky-High Sundae. So if you love racing about, there’s a lot to look forward to in Wave 2. The only other featured title this week is a game called Hindsight. It’s a narrative exploration game where you peer into the life of one woman, making key decisions on what truly matters and what doesn’t. Next up, we have a special sale before we dive into the Game Guide sales.
