The new pack is for not only the most popular Mario game, but the most popular game on the Nintendo Switch.

Now available on the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service, the new content pack is free to subscribers of the service.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe regularly has new content drops and the Wave 5 content pack is now here.

It adds three new characters to the game, which are playable across all tracks.

Kamek is a wizard Koopa riding a broomstick who made their first appearance in Yoshi’s Island.

Petey Piranha was most prominently featured in Mario Sunshine, but Piranha plants have long been a staple of the series.

The final new character is Wiggler, a long enemy that was first featured in Super Mario World.

This is the biggest number of characters that have been added to Mario Kart 8 with any single wave expansion.

As is usual with Mario Kart 8 waves, there are eight new tracks that have been added.
