Check Out New Amiibo Suits And Gameplay Of Mario Kart 8 DLC

See for yourself what the new Mario Kart 8 Amiibo suits look like in-game, where you can dress up as: Wario, Pac-Man, Bowser, Sonic, Toad, Villager, Rosalina or Mega Man! Which do you think looks best? My personal favourite is Sonic, because with 200cc, you gotta go fast.

You can also take a look at the gameplay for the Crossing Cup in the new DLC, if you haven’t already, featuring tracks: Baby Park, Cheese Land, Wild Woods and Animal Crossing. As a huge fan of Animal Crossing, I have to say this track is my favourite, and it’s amazing how much they actually made you feel like you were driving through your Town. Which are your favourite parts of the new DLC?

Here’s More Details About The Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming April 23rd

The captivating world of the Animal Crossing series comes to Mario Kart 8 on 23rd April, when a second downloadable content pack brings 8 new courses, 3 new characters and 4 new vehicles to the gravity-defying racing game available exclusively on Wii U.

On the same day, a free downloadable game update for all Mario Kart 8 owners will enable – for the very first time in the Mario Kart series – races in a new super-speed 200cc racing class, allowing players to experience the game’s different courses in a whole new way, and re-think their victory strategies accordingly. To add to the feeling of racing at chaotic speeds, watch the sparks fly as Mario and others need to brake round those tight bends! In addition, the update will bring unlockable Mii racing suits for the following 9 amiibo characters: Wario, PAC-MAN, Olimar, Bowser, Sonic, Toad, Villager, Rosalina and Mega Man. Players can tap these amiibo figures to the Wii U GamePad to outfit their Mii characters in Mii racing suits themed to these famous gaming icons.

Since its launch in May 2014, Mario Kart 8 has sold over 4.77 million copies worldwide and was nominated last year for numerous multi-platform ‘Game of the Year’ awards, with its blend of intense racing, beautifully-rendered courses, and much-loved characters. With the release of the upcoming DLC pack alongside a free update, Mario Kart 8 is set to offer yet more options for players to enjoy its unforgettable gameplay.

Chrome Extension Allows You To Play Real-time Animal Crossing Music In The Browser

Want to listen to Animal Crossing music while you browse the internet? Well there’s now a Google Chrome extension that allows you to do just that. The neat thing is is that the extension changes the music based on the time of day you play based on the system clock. The nifty little extension also includes the soundtrack for every Animal Crossing title released, so there’s plenty to listen to.
