Mario Kart Wave 4 Release Date Speculation

At the moment, there is no release date for wave 4 of the Mario Kart 8 DLC. Typically, the waves of DLC come out every few months, but it's impossible to say for certain without confirmation from Nintendo.

That said, we do know that Nintendo has confirmed that all six waves of DLC will be out by the end of 2023. That means we have three waves left and it's likely Nintendo will follow a similar release schedule as the first 3 waves released in 2022.

The table shows us when the previous DLC waves were released and when we expect to see Wave 4, 5, and 6 moving forward.

Mario Kart 8 Booster Course Release Date
Wave 1 March 18, 2022
Wave 2 August 4, 2022
Wave 3 December 7, 2022
Wave 4 TBC - March 2023?
Wave 5 TBC - July 2023?
Wave 6 TBC - November 2023?

Mario Kart Wave 4 Track Predictions

At the moment, we also have no confirmation on what tracks might be coming to wave 4 of Mario Kart 8. More than likely though, a track from Mario Kart Tour and a brand new track will be released as well. We also predict that maybe Daisy Cruiser will come out as well from Mario Kart Double Dash as that was a pretty popular track to play on back then.
