The Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 release date has been confirmed for the "end of November." A second installment, DLC Pack 2, arrives "end of May 2015."
I was hoping we'd be playing it within 2 weeks, seeing that so much news about it has appeared recently. This is a bit disheartening...Either way - Can't wait!
This only means it will release before the end of november, but it could be any thursday really. Likely won't be the last thursday as it's thanksgiving in USA. The thursday before (the 20th) is right before Super Smash Bors WiiU release and Pokemon ORAS. I doubt they will release it then because those 2 will likely generate enough traffic on their network and would also overshadow the DLC. That leaves the 6th or the 13th, but the 6th is too soon and nothing was announced yet.
I figure they'll include both DLC packs on Mario Kart 8 retail copies fall 2015 so they can still justify the $50-$60 price tag, at least I'd imagine.
Mario Kart can sell full price for years DLC or not.But I guess anything is posable these days,they did give away a free game download for the first few months it was out,but I kind of thought of that as a way of them making up for the early price drop on the system for early adopters as well as getting new sales.
Can't wait for the 1st dlc but wow may for the 2nd that's 6 months away :-(
I was hoping for this week or at least the next. Oh well. Hopefully HW gets its next DLC pack soon while I wait Karts.
My guess is either november and may 30th (6 month and 1 year anniversaries of mario kart 8) or the november one will come out in november 21st, because many nintendo releases come out that day
Was hoping sooner but will have Advanced Warfare and Master Chief so no worries.
It's coming so close to smash!! God dammit Nintendo stop spoiling me so much!
I am betting on this week or the same day as the wii u bundle in Japan the 13th. Same day as Toad in Japan. The Japanese just says before the end of November. No said date.
First DLC pack looks very promising indeed!
