Mario Kart 8 DLC To Feature Zelda, F-Zero And Animal Crossing!

A recent listing on Nintendo's UK online store has revealed 2 upcoming DLC packs for the Wii U hit, Mario Kart 8. Each DLC pack will add 3 new characters, 4 vehicles and 8 new tracks spread across 2 cups. One of the biggest surprises is that much of this new content will be coming from other Nintendo franchises such as Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Excitebike and F-Zero. This means that the Mario Kart franchise will open itself up to crossovers in the same way as Super Smash Bros. (A very smart move by Nintendo seeing as fans have long asked for this). Official pricing for North America has not been revealed at this time.

Here is the full breakdown taken from the Nintendo UK online store:

Each Add On Content pack will contain two new cups, each with four courses, which, in total, increases the number of available courses by 50 percent. The Add On Content packs include classics like Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, as well as new courses, some taking place in the worlds of The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. New vehicles will also arrive with each pack, including the Blue Falcon kart representing the F-Zero franchise in the first AOC pack.

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
As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.
