Here’s The Full Scoop On The Newly-Revealed DLC For Mario Kart 8

Two new downloadable content packs will take the world of Mario Kart 8 in directions the franchise has never seen before, while significantly expanding game-play options. The packs, which launch this fall and in spring of 2015, and are available for advance purchase starting Aug. 27 at $7.99 each (or $11.99 for both), deliver a ton of new content, including first-time crossover characters like Link from The Legend of Zelda franchise and both Isabelle and the Villager from the Animal Crossing series.

In addition to these two new downloadable content packs, a previously announced game update goes live Aug. 27 that adds a variety of new features, including three free Mercedes-Benz cars that players can race: the modern Mercedes-Benz GLA, the 300 SL Roadster from the 1950s and the legendary Silver Arrow of the 1930s. Go to to view a video of the in-game karts in action.


“More than 1 million Wii U owners in the United States alone are already enjoying the fun of Mario Kart 8,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Mario Kart 8 already includes the largest number of characters, karts and options of any Mario Kart game to date, and these amazing expansion packs give players even more choices.”

Each pack will contain two new cups, each with four courses, which, in total, increases the number of currently available courses by 50 percent. The DLC packs include classic courses 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 DLC pack.

Mario Kart 8 owners who purchase both packs starting Aug. 27 will get access to eight new colors of Yoshi and eight new colors of Shy Guy to race with immediately. To purchase the packs in advance, users with a broadband Internet connection can click the new “Shop” icon in the game or visit the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.


The DLC packs are scheduled to include the following:

Pack 1: The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 (Release Date: November 2014) – $7.99

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

Pack 2: Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 (Release Date: May 2015) – $7.99

Pack 1 + Pack 2 Bundle – $11.99

  • 6 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link, Villager, Isabelle and
  • Dry Bowser
  • 8 Vehicles
  • 16 Courses
  • As a bonus for purchasing both packs bundled or individually, buyers receive eight new colors for Yoshi and Shy Guy. Those who advance purchase both packs can begin using the Yoshi and Shy Guy characters immediately.

    1. I don’t care if you people don’t read it, I’m still going to post it….haha

      If there were this movement/petition where it would allow entrance to normal people into any cemetery, with records of the dead in hand, and a gallon of one owns urine. I would be first in line to support it….don’t ask….just let me continue.

      The records of the deceased would be used to verify which deaths were drug related. The urine, it’s pretty much self explanatory; would allow for the person/backer of said project to pour urine on the specific grave. This way, those who passed prematurely could even(if you believe in it) in the afterlife, KNOW how useless they were! Ages 18-35 to be more specific, I mock deaths of those related to drugs. I have and gave reason to. 
      And any drug users out there, read to see how much garbage you are in the real world. Intelligent, motivated, leaders like my self are a dying breed. But I guess if we were all leaders, you dumbasses would have purpose in life and clutter the opportunity of those true deities. My magnificence is unrivaled, straightedged lifestyle, beautiful girl by my side, success where it needs to be right at this time! Life is great!

      This goes to that dumbass, junkie, Lord Idiocy, trying to explain things like he’s some sort of medical doctor. Go tell somebody who cares; drugs are for lesser beings(makes sense why you praise them, and advertise it to others) I wouldn’t be in Armani and Stacey Biscuits if I took the LOSER road….I’m a winner, that dumbass, I’m embarrassed for his parents….and the parents of that Queer, and that suicidal Witch, AND, that army moron…hahahahaha I’m better than all!!!

      Who studies drugs for any other purpose than to get paid???? Oh, right, Lord Idiocy does…to impress his circle of rejects…hahaha

      Lowlife: What do you do, guy? 

      Lord Idiocy: I study drugs

      Lowlife: awesome, you’re the life of the party

      Lord Idiocy: (in head) yes, I got this

      Lord Idiocy: you know, drugs this, drugs that, drugs are cool…I hate straighedged people because they don’t depend on a substance for happiness.

      Lowlife: huh? I wasn’t listening, 420, yea dog, 420, yea dog, spliff, blaze up, pot, weed, Kush!

      Lord Idiocy: this is fun, this is what I live for…I feel accepted

              1. Paid DLC? Hmmm….I wonder how the reception will be. I definitely won’t be churning out any money for this, but it’s still nice to have something to extend the gameplay!

      1. Listen here Jabroni, The Rock says know your role and shut your mouth! Who, in the blue hell, are you? What’s your name, son?? IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!!! THE ROCK IS GONNA TAKE YOU DOWN TO JABRONI DRIVE, THEN CHECK YOU INTO THE SMACKDOWN HOTEL, AND LAY THE SMACKDOWN ON YOUR MONKEY ASS!!! IF YA SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE ROCK, IS COOKIN’!!!

        Drop acid pussy boy, leader of cum guzzling!


      2. Using stereotypes lol you’re a retard. And if you knew anything about psychedelics you’d know they aren’t really party drugs or used at all for feeling cool. Your ignorance shows and it’s blinding my eyes! Research before coming at someone who already has. You can’t judge something you haven’t tried. It’s ok that your scared, taking psychedelic drugs isn’t for everyone.

        1. Drug boy was hurt by my post….hahahahaha

          You’re not “cool” dumbass…give it up. A drug is a drug, over the counter too. Someone of my magnitude to resort to stupidity for “experimentation” is the dumbest(makes sense, it’s coming from you) reason for it!

          I’m a man people look to emulate. Losers like you aren’t given the time of day…you’re not anything “better” than anyone for knowing about your little simple “drugs”. Doctor dumbass, go tell somebody who cares.

          You say scared, me? Stupid, it’s called intelligence! A drug is a drug, get it through your mushy brain. I have ALL I need in life…you’re not cool, you’re the opposite, you look foolish, and to other people, you make them feel pity for you. I laugh, I’m the type(and I’ve done it) to tell a pothead or junkie(you) to their face…that I don’t wanna hear your little “get high” stories because I don’t care and it’s plain idiotic.

          Lord Dimwitt, do something productive in your sorry life…you don’t impress anyone. I do! Where it counts, in real life.

          Study drugs???? Hahahahaha that’s the most USELESS thing anyone can study…dumbass, seek help, apologize to your parents for being an imbecile.

          1. Ha please bitch you’re terrified. Anyone who has to hype himself up like you is clearly a friendless loser. Keep telling yourself that people look up to you. I’m sure the person in the mirror believes it. You put so many words in my mouth it’s hilarious. You’re the one who said you’re better than everyone here, you’re the idiot who thinks you’re cool for not doing drugs, I never said I thought I was cool for doing drugs. Who are you, Nancy Reagan? You sound like a D.A.R.E. add lol. Look up psychedelic research idiot. Ecstasy and shrooms for instance are being used for PTSD and having great results. You have no experience or knowledge on the subject and are being schooled heavily and it’s an honor to provide the lessons. We can go all day like this brah brah! Keep believing your delusions, they sound great! I love your insults! You’re clearly outclassed and resort to propaganda to try and back your arguments. And if you come in my face I’ll laugh and slap the taste out of your mouth. And THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE, CAUSE STONE, COLD, SAID SO!!

            Drop acid pussy boy :)

              1. lol thanks he’s a jerk claiming to be better than all of us and that we all look up to him. sorry to everyone for wasting comment space and talking about non-video game related stuff but this guy is something else

            1. I’m going to tell you exactly what I tell every idiot. IF you do not refrain from using profanity this exchange is over..,it’s been over, and I came out on top, but I felt pity(like you’re accostuned to) and gave you a second shot. I do NOT deal with immature maniacs who have to use profanity every other word.

              I insult based on facts, you are a JUNKIE, a useless person. NO right minded person would EVER suggest drug usage to another…,EVER!
              My morals are those of gods, I abide by a sacred code you simpletons would never have courage to follow. Cowards give in to temptation, magnificence is measured by resistance, I do MY own bidding. I don’t look to be on an even playing field, I look to be above, I STRIVE to be above. Losers like yourself, are convinced(as you should be) that you reached your peak, a peak crowded with life’s garbage. There are more of you than there are of me. I live knowing I’m BETTER, I live knowing that that is FACT! A follower attacks greatness because his fears of change clog any positivity from entering the brain. You useless people sicken me, but it’s ok…we need you.. I NEED YOU..,without saps like you and Jeff, I would cease to exist. My value would drop, my existence while already at a disadvantage would further diminish. Is imply put, I’m BETTER than EVERY person on this site! Your jealousy is used in an unorthodox form of encouragement, your pathetic meaningless words help me complete what I have started. Losers lend the moral support I need, and without you, there would be no me! Drug boy, I can help your addiction problems, you just have to make sacrifices, I know to you ignorant types, that seems like the greatest feat, but do it..,if not for your trashy life, for your parents that made you into the failure you are today.

And if you’re not down with that, we got two words for ya! SUCK IT!!

      3. I bet you eat chocolate and occassionally drink coffee , soda or tea, like all ‘straight edgers’ I know.
        Also I hope you and that lady aren’t having sex, or you can delete one of those x’s. Also, if you really want to be successful, try ‘hardline’ a.k.a. Vegan/straight edge. Unless you think it’s for ‘teh stoohped druggeez’. And no, i’m not bothered, but if you so serious about defaming straight edge, join Courage Crew. If you don’t know what that is, google it, listen to some Bane, and then give up, because you are a tool and a cancer on a good cause.

        Someone Who Knows Better

        “Can we go back again?”

          1. I don’t know about that once i ate chocolate and drank dr. pepper and my stomach blew up and i died. true story.

          2. Straight edge means no drugs whatsoever(or alcohol, or casual sex). Caffeine is a drug, it’s in chocolate and soda and coffee and tea and aspirin. I don’t condemn anyone for the use of it, but in my experience, straight edgers generally overlook caffeine. I was implying that he probably uses drugs, but doesn’t consider them as drugs.

        1. Jeff….tell somebody who gives a damn. Your pointless accomplishments don’t stack up to mine. The only cancer here is your followers mentality. Vegans are one of two things, female or queer. My magnificence is in a category of its own…I MAKE MY OWN RULES! There is no “type” I choose to follow. Before you ACT intelligent, do the world a favor…Russian roulette with a nine millimeter. The world can do without you, pansy.
          I’m a TRUE leader, a deity, people love me! Online I’m hated because my SUPERIOR ways are misunderstood. All the gibberish you wrote, dismissed! I don’t limit myself to a box, I put paint where their isn’t. Your little act-smart ACT impressed no one! Maybe that drug addict…,and by your post…I will judge; you, too are an addict…you people truly are a pathetic breed. More power to ME, I live a life you all dream of…self reliant, you people live for handouts, I MAKE events occur.

          Jeff, to you I say(write):

          1. Just testing you. I wanted to see if you stand for any of the things you claim. It’s ok, you’re trolling someone. I get it, it’s obvious from the language you use. You’re playing a character(poorly). If you want to be convincing, a character is consistent. Maybe someone close to you overdosed, or threw their life away to drugs. I’m sorry for that, truly. Either way, there are far better ways to deal than by antagonizing someone an internet forum. Did you know straight edge originated from the hardcore punk scene? It sounds like you have no idea, so i’ll explain: Hardcore is a passionate style of heavy music. It is a way to relate and express emotions in a community of like minded individuals. I would bet money you would find more satisfaction at a hardcore concert than on my nintendo news. If you are really some rich dude hellbent on terrorizing adolescents for making bad life choices, just be that. Don’t call yourself straight edge, that implies so much more than what you claim to be. For one thing, I doubt you would work for massive corporations if you had the slightest inkling of what that money goes to. That is not edge.
            Here are some hardcore bands to check out:
            Shai Hulud
            Gorilla Biscuits
            Ed Gein

            Here is a band that is a satire of who you claim to be(or who you actually are):

            I don’t care what you do here, just don’t label yourself. Especially if you are TEH MOAST MAGNIFICENT BEING WITH TEH POWERZ X1,000,000.
            You’re above that right?

            1. Got to your noodles, jeffy?

              Convince yourself all you like, this is NO act. I’m as magnificent as advertised. I go online to make trash like you feel like the trash that you are.

              You hate me because I have shown resistance, you hate that I make moves opposite of what the crowd is doing, you hate that I am living HAPPY each and every single day; while you mope around searching for a better way.

              Don’t hate perfection, read and learn. To catch you up to speed, I’ve let out reasons why I act like I act….but since you missed that, too bad.

              All you hollow-brains, your fairy tale mentality sees me, and your quick easy-fix answer, to dismiss my originality as a “troll”. We exist, dummy, this is the real deal, accept that your strings get pulled daily and you are content knowing that! You don’t fight back, you are useless, you are an ADDICT.

              There are two sides to every story….you’re a follower, along with that drug boy, and I am NOT! I’m better than you, deal with it, jeffy!

              1. I don’t hate anyone, actually. I’m well aware that I’m ‘feeding the troll’. I’m 30 and a successful musician, I have no problem if you think you’re happier than me or anyone else here. I just happen to recognize when someone uses language that implies their age is far below thay which they claim. Like how you said I was ‘trying to sound smart’? …that’s just how adults talk. Either way, it’s a weird persona you’re pushing here. If you made any sense, i’d be inclined to take you more seriously. In any case check out hewhocorrupts. If anything, Tommy Camaro should give you some ideas to improve your character. Very funny stuff.

                1. Jeffy the struggling musician. Haha, you thirty and above year olds roaming these pages really do live pathetically. There is no persona, get it right! I’m better than you, I don’t need to get into detail. If I reveal anything further it would compromise my elite identity. I’m like the IRS, I sit back and collect, I’ve put my work in.
                  At this very moment, normal people like you….wait “successful musicians” like you watch and or have heard of the series in which I created….that’s as far into detail I’ll go.
                  I have free time because I put my work in! That drug addict and you are just a pastime, I don’t TROLL, that’s how I really ROLL.

                  Hate is powerful, I would get that checked out if I were you.

                  1. haha, right… I forgot how many successful executives visit this independently run video game blog. Just the other day we had Matt Groening on here telling everyone the Wii U is last gen. Then before that, George Lucas kept telling everyone that he was the most 1337 5n1p3r in Call of Duty. You should really drop the act, you can insult people and get more credibility if you are honest and even anonymous. I just picked you because of how pathetic you seem touting your superiority. Trust me, no one believes it. I am close friends with someone who actually built a famous Amp company from the ground up, and his product is sold internationally and used by professionals and amateurs the world over. And guess what? He works, and lives, and doesn’t spend much time on internet forums, haha. It’s way too easy to see through, son. You’d probably actually hurt some feelings if you came correct and were honest. This is what I would do: check your ‘net worth’, and tell your secretary to hold your calls. Then start over with a less obvious act. Or, show me ONE instance of a famous professional coming on a BLOG to tell people how great they are. Seriously. Hewhocorrupts. That is who you are, Tommy Camaro. No one can take living satire seriously.

                    1. Jeffry! Don’t fight the fact, accept it. I do research on my fanbase; THIS is my fanbase. The series which I co-created is successful. My partners(assets) would suffer a loss if I went into detail. It would damage the program. Selfish as I am, assets to me are sacred. You can flatter yourself all you like. Nowhere in “life’s book” does it read that we must ALL be courteous, I LIVE for this. My life is set, I just hooked up with my lawyers daughter, I’m watching the funds come in. I’ve mentioned it, I’m on vacation…AND, first and foremost I’m a GAMER. So naturally I do gamer things(on forums)

                      The image you conjure of a typical “business suit” is all wrong. I’m about making fun of people. My second project is complete. And like you already know, I’m under thirty, I have my life ahead of me. Right now it’s FUN time. Think what you want, I’m legitimate.
                      People find it hard to believe, but hey, there’s only one thing in life that matters, living it! And you do t have to type like a professor to be successful, just putting that out there, I’m self made, the REAL way!

      4. As a mental health professional, your post is pretty disturbing. Your obsession over power and dominance of others this post is potentially dangerous if you truly believe what you’ve written. It might seem cool or make you feel better to say these things, but it doesn’t help you garner healthy relationships or a healthy mindset. In fact, it likely will do the opposite.

        Too address what you’ve, I’ve worked with my fair share of individuals who have used drug. I can tell you that there are many reasons for their drug use. Some adaptive, some not. However, these people that you cast aside so easily are often good people with people who love them. Some of them have made some amazing contributions to their community. Yes, the choices that some make are not always positive and sometimes they do hurt themselves or others in process. But there is always context to all this. Issues of racism, internalized oppression, class issues, gender issues, medical issues, mental health, poverty, etc often influence a person’s choices. In these situations, it’s better to offer guidance than judgement.

        I commend you for not using drugs, but don’t assume that that makes you better than others. It’s your care for others and contributions to this world that make up your value, not whether you choose to use drugs or not. If you want to show your value, volunteer to help those affected by drugs. You might find that they have some things they can teach you about internal strength.

      5. Nintendo Sub-Lieutenant

        *Puts an oily piece of chicken down in front of Tags.*
        He’s my pet troll. Gotta feed him chicken everyday. It’s his favorite.

    1. Da KOOL Ninja smokin on Nu powhts!

      Stupid BIATCH!!!!!
      Git n da kitchen and maek a ninja a sammich!!!! Sum pancakes, wit aunt jemima syrup, fo sho! Err body holla at chi boi if u want diz werk….one

  1. Pack 1 + Pack 2 = BEST DEAL EVER! Nintendo of America is on FIRE!!!! 1 million sold in the United States and the best is still ahead.

    1. Calm down! This game NEEDED DLC for it to even stay relevant. I’m sorry (not to you) for always being negative, but lets face it, this game had little replay value. Even the racing online was getting repetitive after a while.

        1. I’d pay like $10-15 for a N64 Battle Arena Pack. Block Fort and Skyscraper were my favorite Battle stages in the series. Throw in Double Deck and Big Donut and MK8 would be the greatest MK by default, and I wouldn’t think twice about the 15 either…

          1. shit I’d pay so much for that!! Those were my favorite battle arenas by far! And totally agree about it instantly being the best if it happened. I also wish we had the option of changing the laps per race, I would love to have rainbow road 64 back to 3 laps, even though some hated it’s length. Don’t know how they could do the lap option online though besides creating a room.

            1. Seriously though, cause doing one lap on that feels so wrong! I’m always disappointed during that last little glider part lol. That and the changes to Yoshi Valley were my only real issues as far as the retro remakes. (Maybe we just love the 64 too much?)

      1. Mario Kart 8 has lots of replay value… although it’s not for you By the time the DLC is launched the replay value will raise higher than before. You had your say, Anubis, but it’s all good though.

    1. Depending on the state you live in the savings can actually be more. NYC tax is like 8.475% or something like that so the bundle is good for us. A nice four off normally buying them separately and probably add an extra buck or two for our taxes

        1. High five fellow floridian! I’m visiting Pennsylvania til next tuesday, if I purchase it while up here, would I have to pay taxes or is my wii u locked into florida for sales?

          1. Couldn’t you just change your zip code in the Wii U shop menu like you can on the 3DS? Set it to whatever state zip that gets little to no tax, and reap the benefits. :)

              1. It depends on how you use it. If I moved to Florida where tax is 0% than no, because I want to pay the correct tax and not give my money to another state. It is illegal if you use just to get out of paying taxes. In his case he’s moving between states, so it is ok to change your zip while there as long as it gets changed back. I heard of those who have done this, but for game consoles its really hard for charges to be charged against you because you may just move around a lot. Its only illegal if you abuse it! :)

            1. Not sure, I already have it in florida, so I’m hoping it doesn’t register that I’m in a different state.

              1. Well it definitely won’t notice it. Lol I should have read your question more thoroughly, but no your Wii U doesn’t pick up on stiff like that unless you manually change it in settings or whatever.

  2. Quality fucking dlc. I am definately getting this no question. This will add many more hours of fun to Mario kart and I’m currently playing the dlc for dark souls 2 which is great. Nintendo and from software really know how to give you your moneys worth in dlc

        1. Look at it like this: MK8 costs $60, comes with 30 characters and 32 tracks, all dlc together is $12, comes with 6 characters and 16 TRACKS, do the math, its a good deal :p

      1. You get to play as them tomorrow? Seriously? :( Oh man I knew I shouldn’t have spent my eshop credit! D:

    1. Fine by me since Link isn’t part of that pack. xD Still, even the first pack is still a good ways off. Fucking November, bleh!

      1. Well considering they only recently started doing it, they’ve gotten the hang of it rather quickly. Other companies might have been doing this a whole generation sooner but most of them still haven’t learned to do it right.

      2. Yup especially cuz i felt like i payed for a partially unfinished game. (Imo… and even though they are charging for DLC)

  3. Wow!!! Cheaper than I thought it would be! It is 7 euros, so I expected like 10-12 dollars, but it’s just $7.99?!

    Awesome! and to get both packs it’s only 4 more dollars!?!?!?

    Great deal…really great deal.

  4. this is mario kart 8 news is so cool i cant wait for the new update its going to be good maybe tom from nintendo should see this news since team mario won camp miiverse cool right.

  5. Well,I can’t get it. I seriously want this,but my main issue is my Internet connection,and the bandwidth is preventing me from getting this. The better chance I have is that I get my parents to upgrade it,so I can get a chance. However,there’s one question I have in mind,how do you switch between different Yoshis,and Shy Guys,since I know they won’t be in different slots like Metal Mario,and PGP are.

  6. Well I foresee Mario Kart 8 being back in the top 10 for November 2014 & May 2015. Well with this news, we don’t have to worry about Jaded Drybones complaining about no Dry Bowser. xD

    1. *slaps Ridley* stop talking about the sales. It’s already doing good for a Wii U game. You’re basically feeding the trolls. XD

      1. I don’t care. Let the little shits come! I’ll roast them all! Or I’ll just carry them off into space & let the vacuum of space end them! For I am Ridley! xP


    1. Wow… I’ve never seen an angry troll before.. it’s fucking funny XD
      I can see you shitting yourself with rage whilst typing this

  8. I’m sure as hell getting both DLC packs so I can play as Shy Guy and Yoshi in my all time favorite color (blue).

  9. I´m really happy with this dlc approach. And 16 courses for 12$ is a great value.
    I even like the idea of branching out to other ids. Trackwise there are so many possibilities. New assets will bring new life to MK.

    1. Most likely Grand Prix courses. The new battle mode with the race tracks instead of arenas is most likely not going to change. But it’d be nice if they removed that damn time limit crap, though. It would make it more fun since you don’t have to race against time to defeat your enemies to get points.

  10. OMG!! WHAT?! This is insane! Link?? Please tell me this means there will be a hyrule track!
    This really changes things up for the MK series in a big way IMO.

  11. I’d be more excited if the DLC packs included actually Battle Mode arenas instead of the Battle Mode tracks that MK8 has now

    1. I’m sure Nintendo have heard the fans complain. Maybe they’ll HD remake some old battle arenas, and give them as free DLC?

  13. *facepalm* The update isn’t downloading on my Wii U. For some dumb reason, the game decided to put the Mario Kart save data to my system memory instead of my hard drive and it keeps trying to be stupid and not download to my hard drive even though it’s plugged up! I need to get a new Gamepad charger so I can’t change the settings to move the data right now! Why do I always get screwed every time there’s a major update?! AAAAAH CURSE YOU WII U GAMEPAD!!! *kicks table repeatedly and rips off shirt*

  14. This DLC is going to be fuckin’ awesome! Amazing content and price! Now, all the game needs is a better item system and proper battle tracks and this will be the best Mario Kart ever!
