Mario Kart 8 Deluxe just came out a few days ago and Kris and I have been playing it whenever we have a free moment.
We like to play in order, so we’ve just beaten the 50cc Grand Prix, which means we’ve played each track once. And here are my favorites…
Before I give you a list of my top five favorite tracks in the game, I want to say that these tracks are from Mario Kart 8 and the DLC. I didn’t include any rehashed tracks from previous Mario Kart games.
I also didn’t include any Rainbow Road tracks or Bowser’s Castle tracks because those ones are a given. They will always be one of the best tracks.
Anyway, here we go:
5. Toad Harbor
This is a simple track. One where you’re driving on the road avoiding buses and just going through the town. For some reason, it reminds me of the first level in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle where the song “City Escape” by Crush 40. I pretty much sang that song the entire race and it really pumped me up.
4. Animal Crossing
I love Animal Crossing and I’m glad they acknowledged the game, showing off some of the NPCs of the game and buildings. It was cool to explore the town in a different way. I also enjoy that the seasons change.
3. Hyrule Circuit
This one was probably a given. The coins turn to rupees, the item blocks make the sound effect like Link is opening a chest, and the music brings you right back to Hyrule. I thought this track was so well-done, especially the room where the Master Sword is showcased.
Funky colors, cool lights, and awesome music. That’s the way to go, I don’t care what anyone else says.
1. Twisted Mansion
I always find the ghost levels to be really cool in any Mario game and Mario Kart is no exception. After playing through this one I found myself wanting to play Luigi’s Mansion again. The music was fitting and the overall atmosphere was on point.
What are some of your favorite tracks from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? Are you enjoying the game?
