Would you buy character DLC for Mario Kart 8?

GotGame: So we all know that Nintendo is at the very least down with DLC on the Wii U. We saw the company release a legit expansion to New Super Mario Bros. U with New Super Luigi U. And with the company announcing some free DLC for Mario Kart 8 in the way of a Mercedes-Benz car, we have an officially opening for potential future content for the racer.

Now if Nintendo decided to offer paid DLC for Mario Kart 8, would you buy it? (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

If they offered new tracks and fun new modes, I would buy it.

$5 for 3 characters and 2 new tracks.

You offer a Season Pass, I throw my wallet.

I think I would too but I would prefer if it was a DLC pack that included both characters and maps, instead of say, a set amount per character. Maybe even like $1.99 for like 3 or 4 racers would be cool, just no individual stuff.

It depends, I think with characters I would want them to be free

With a new Mario Kart game we should of had new characters like Wart and Mouser. Even with people like Birdo and Boo (King Boo..same thing) who have been in it before they should of already been in the game from the start, why remove characters who have been in it before. I'd rather have them then baby versions of the characters.

How about Toadsworth, Pauline, E.Gadd, Prince Peasley, Fawful, Cackletta, Princess Shroob, Nabbit, Lubba etc

As for more modes? I would like the old Battle arena to come back but again I wouldn't want to pay for it. If it was something new fair enough but the battle arena mode shouldn't of be changed in the first place

Fawful and Nabbit would have been gnarly!

Give me Dry Bones and Dry Bowser please, and throw in Ghost Valley 1 from the SNES game and you got my money.

Offer DLC game packs, for instance a new DLC Cup that adds a few more players when bought.

Normally I'd roll my eyes at unnecessary DLC but seeing how much content and value Nintendo games have, I welcome it here. Above characters, I'd love new maps as well.

I'd rather them to just start working on the next Mario kart.

I want them to either patch the coin item to appear much less, or remove it completely. Worst item in video game history!

I am up for characters, but I would like more if they offer new tracks.

As long as we're not getting more "Metal" or "Baby" characters I'll be happy.

Should be a Pack and should be cheap enough so everyone can play.

When Map Packs release on alot of games, it fragments the community.

Simple answer... yes.

Nope. i dont really care too much about characters in mario kart. i woild get stages or modes though. i never get dlc for any game, only time was the extra pikmin 3 missions and new super luigi u which was pretty much its own game. i would get characters for ssb though, but i never even thought about buying characters for playstation all-stars when it had such a small roster to start with, those characters should have just been included from the start.

Why not? But I would prefer additional content like new race tracks and battle arenas in addition to characters.
