Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 DLC

Yesterday Nintendo released the Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 DLC for your racing pleasure. Pack 1 includes three characters (Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach) four karts, and eight courses. This fun and festive DLC can be yours for the low price of $8 and you can find a preview of the new courses below. But wait, there’s more! DLC Pack 2 will be available in May 2015 for the same price or you can purchase a Pack Bundle for $11.99. Please note that if you purchase the two packs separately you will not receive a discount.

Aside from DLC Packs, a mandatory update also launched yesterday allowing Amiibo support for Mario Kart 8. The first wave of those adorable little figures will arrive in stores November 21, along with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Back in August, Nintendo announced Mario Kart 8 crossed the 1 million mark for units sold in the US. Despite the Wii U having launched two years ago, the only other game in the console’s library to reach this milestone is New Super Mario Bros. U, yowza. Hopefully, games like Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will change this nonsense.
