Modernization: data miner oat dome I also explain what is happening in more detail:

Nintendo accidentally left too many music preview files in the 2.1.0 update, allowing us to select several unreleased courses!

What is a Music Preview File? Since loading a full music file from the ROM may take some time, a separate “prefetch” file is generated from the first ~1s which can be preloaded into memory. This prefetch runs while the full file is loaded.

Unfortunately for Nintendo, while they deleted the entire songs of the unreleased courses from the ROM, they accidentally left some prefetch files. (It is stored in a separate place.)

It is possible to select multiple courses based on their first ~1s of music!

So, there you are – these pathways could come in waves in the future if this datamin is accurate. Keep in mind that there is no official confirmation and that everything is likely to change between now and the launch of these future waves.
