It’s very possible that Pauline would join Mario Kart since she was added to Mario Strikers: Battle League in its second free update. It also wouldn’t be shocking to see this happen since she is already in Mario Kart Tour.
We’ll have to take this with a grain of salt and wait for official word from Nintendo in the coming weeks about new information regarding Wave 6 of the Booster Course Pass.
