Wave 4 of the Mario Kart Deluxe DLC just launched, and with it, we got some solid hints on new DLC characters being released in the future. The latest update didn't just bring 8 more tracks into the roster, but also the Character Birdo.

The menu, where all your characters can be found has now opened up a new column with Birdo at the top, and five more slots underneath it, that are tagged with question marks, which of course suggests five upcoming characters, that will join the game within the next few waves:
