Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming in November!
Here’s the rundown:
The first pack, coming this November, includes:
- 3 new characters – PETA favorites Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach, plus (gasp!) Link
- 4 new vehicles – including Captain Falcon’s sweet ride, the Blue Falcon
- 8 new tracks – including an F-Zero track, an Excitebike track, and Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii
The second pack, arriving next May, includes:
- 3 new characters – Animal Crossing’s Villager and Isabelle, plus Dry Boswer (about damn time)
- 4 more vehicles - which will require a signed loan agreement with Tom Nook before you can drive
- 8 more tracks - including an Animal Crossing track
Each pack will cost $7.99 individually or $11.99 bundled together and can be pre-ordered from the eShop starting August 27 (i.e.: today!). As an added bonus for purchasing both packs (either separately or as a discount package), buyers will get 8 new colors for Shy Guy and Yoshi, available immediately.
Is this DLC somehow amiibo related? Is that May 2015 release date for real? Is Captain Falcon secretly crying somewhere? Regardless, we’re thrilled for more Mario Kart.
