Check out more screenshots from the new Mario Kart 8 update and upcoming DLC.
damn both packs overall include 6 characters, 8 vehicles and 16 tracks! :O Can't wait, I always play MK8 with my bros and mate!
They're pretty great value, really. It adds another half a game worth of tracks for a fraction of the price of one.
This. To add 16 tracks to an already awesome 32 tracks is pretty cool. Some of these tracks I'm thinking will be NON-Mario Kart related, as in we will get a Hyrule Track, an animal crossing track, an F-Zero track. This could be epic.
Makes me wish my internet didn't suck so badly; I keep getting kicked off whenever I try to race.XD Anyways, yeah, looking forward to this greatly.
Add me, man, and fix your internet so we can play. NNID: gurfinki
I think it would be pretty cool if Mario Kart became more of a Nintendo character game. Rename it to Nintendo & Mario Kart racing maybe?
It should always be Mario Kart first. Hopefully next time they have more variety in the base character content so instead of finally adding Dry Bowser they already have him in it.
I think they will always call it Mario Kart, but since they announced Link and Villager, it is very possible that Mario Kart 9 will have characters from most Nintendo franchises. The most exciting part of having characters from other franchises other than new tracks is that they can make new items and change the game completely.
Sounds great. I wonder if there will be 3rd and 4th DLC sets? Perhaps what you are talking about could happen with this Mario Kart?!?! *_*
I'm really excited that Nintendo finally got it together and is releasing dlc for mario kart... the older mario kart games seemed like they took forever to get a new game, since they only put out one mario kart per system... now with dlc, we'll get new tracks, characters and karts! I preordered both and can't wait to check out the new tracks and karts!
