First Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming in November

It’s happening! Nintendo of America has issued a press release with all the heavy details about the upcoming selection of Mario Kart 8 DLC in the coming months

There will be two packs of DLC which can be purchased separately or together, and they add new characters, vehicles, and courses to the racing game. Each pack has two brand new cups to play with four tracks per cup, with tracks based around fan favorite franchises like Animal Crossing and The Legend of Zelda.

You’ll also get to see some remade classics, just like in the full version of the game, such as “Wario’s Gold Mine” from Mario Kart Wii.

Here’s the listing of details from Nintendo:


 Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 – Released: November 2014

Pack 1 includes:

  • 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
  • 4 Vehicles
  • 8 Courses


Mario Kart 8 Pack 2 – Released: May 2015

Pack 2 includes:

  • 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
  • 4 Vehicles
  • 8 Courses

Packs will be priced at $7.99 individually or $11.99 when purchased together, and there’s a bonus for picking up both packs—eight different colored Yoshis and eight different-colored Shy Guys that you can play immediately. Oh yes… everyone wants more Shy Guys on the track… right? O_O

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
