Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming in November!

By now you’ve probably heard all about the new Mario Kart 8 DLC. No, not the controversial Mercedez-Benz cars. We’re talking about the Super Nintendo Kart extravaganza!

Here’s the rundown:

The second pack, arriving next May, includes:
-
3 new characters – Animal Crossing’s Villager and Isabelle, plus Dry Boswer (about damn time)

-
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.
