Five new characters (including Diddy Kong) for Mario Kart 8 have been spotted as future DLC, but is this screenshot telling the truth of what's to come?
5 characters just as I have predicted it while playing the game with my bros just an hour ago LOL
5 characters and a cup would be nice
A cup would be awesome, but I don't think so
I've always wanted the Rainbow Cup, which is all the Rainbow Roads recreated for the most current MK, in this case MK8. Maybe even remake the Rainbow Ride from Mario64 and the Rainbow Roads from the Arcade versions of MK. I think a long endurance cup like that would be awesome.
Diddy Kong Racing race track ? :D
* 5 Characters + 2 Cups + Block Fort type Battle Mode + FREE or $4.99 = AWESOME & Nintendo wins the summer.
DLC time! yeah
It's a miracle lol On topic - Yeah I can't wait for a DLC and I hope we get more levels too
DLC will improve this game massively! i just hope it's free! Not because I'm a cheap ***** but because I don't want the online community to be split just like it was on Battlefield after each map pack
They should release characters at a cost but maps for free, ESPECIALLY for battle mode.
Wtf is that??
Wow! These screens look legit, too. You can even see in the reflections off the TV: "Mario Kart DLC Pack". E3 announcement coming? Also, I hope this is free if true.
But where's Dry Bones? I miss him :(
Nice! And hopefully some more tracks. Is it too much to ask for a track editor as well? Probably yes, but that would be amazing.
SMASH BROS LEAK!! http://i.imgur.com/ZfHql4v.... A FRIKKIN HAPPY MEAL!! SERIOUSLY Edit: Please be fake and sorry for caps lol
Goku and shrek lol its fake... Why did I even need to tell you that?
That is obviously fake but I would not mind Goku even though adding him makes no sense
Looks more like a Playstation Allstars lineup.
Mario All Stars came way before PS All Stars. Derp!
OT: I can't wait to play as E Gadd if true. Is this the first time he has been in the series ?
Yep. I'll even place bets that they'll give him a car modeled after the poultergust vacuum that he rides around on top of during one part of M&L Superstar Saga.
Looks real to me. Still want Dry Bones, Funky Kong and Diddy Kong.
Diddy Kong is there. Look closely.
My miss. I should read first.
Looks damn good if it's a fake, I hope it's real though cause I'm all over that Plessy!!
She's super slippery is your body Reggie?
Not sure, but I know my Reggie is body.
That sounds dirty
D: but drybones...
Professor E. Gadd? Nice.
I agree, he is very welcomed!
Someone call Foxtrot and let him know he can stop complaining about the roster now. :P
lol u read my mind.
He would probably still find something to whine about anyway. There is no pleasing some people.
How about getting rid of ALL of those stupid baby characters and replace them with some good characters? Leave the babies in Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island ONLY!
But I love Baby Rosalina. She's so cute. :(
All 8 characters from Diddy Kong Racing would be better than some whiny babies any day.
The only baby character that should be gone is baby rosalina. Why? She's non-canon
By that logic, Waluigi should be gone as well. :P
Baby Peach and Baby DK are only from Yoshi's Island, right? And there's no real story for them being there, right? (I'm not sure, never played that one.) Baby Mario was supposed to be Mario as a Baby, same with Baby Luigi. I think there's Baby Daisy too. If Baby Mario and Luigi are supposed to be Mario and Luigi, then none of them should exist.. Especially not Baby Rosalina.
Why get rid of characters when you can add characters? I'd rather have all these new ones and the baby characters than all these new ones replacing the babies.
OT: Kamek deserves it more than anyone though. He was originally supposed to be in MK64.
The crazy proffesor from Luigi's Mansion, most unexpected... and totally awesome. Doubt it'll be a DLC of only 5 characters though, they better throw in a new cup, a new mode, or something like that(assuming it ain't fake).
Oh my gosh, yay! My new favorite Mario dinosaur. I'm excited at that possibility. ...oh man, I am so excited! :D
It will happen....e3 announcement.
DLC for Mario Kart? HELL YEAH!!!!!
I hope it's not free don't get me wrong i'd love to help them with further DLC i'd pay for this!
You should always hope for free stuff. However if it's not free then I won't complain. Nintendo's pretty fair with selling DLC.
I agree free wouldn't be bad at all but i'd love to support the developer any way i can so if its not free i wouldn't mind either! :D
If they want to charge for additional characters, and even tracks, then I guess it may be fair. But if they add actual arenas for Battle Mode, those BETTER BE FREE. That's the way it should've been done since the start.
I agree Battle arenas should be free!
If there is DLC coming for MK8, they'd better launch some proper stages for Battle mode!!!
