Upcoming Mario Kart 8 DLC to include Link
Link will not be the only Nintendo character crossing over to Mario Kart 8 as Isabelle and the Villager from the Animal Crossing series will take to the track in another paid DLC pack.
The first DLC pack “The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8” will be available in November 2014. The first pack’s three additional characters are Link, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach. The second DLC pack “Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8” will be available in May 2015. The second pack’s three additional characters are Villager, Isabelle and Dry Browser. Each pack will also contain four vehicles (8 across both packs) and eight courses/2 cups (16 courses and 4 cups across both packs). Both packs together will greatly increase the number of options for players in game, for example if you buy both DLC packs the number of available courses will increase by 50 percent.
Both upcoming paid DLC packs are now available for pre-purchase via the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and MK8’s shop for £7.00 each or £11.00 for both. If you purchase the packs now you will get access eight new colours of Yoshi and eight new colours of Shy Guy to race with immediately.
Mario Kart 8 is currently available for Wii U owners, for further information on the game visit, http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Wii-U/Mario-Kart-8-765384.html.
