Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1: Details, trailer, release date


My one prediction for today’s Nintendo Direct involved Mario Kart 8’s first DLC pack: I thought it would be announced for release tomorrow, November 6th. Well, I was only a week off, as it’s officially coming on November 13th. The pack will contain three new racers:

  • Link
  • Tanooki Mario
  • Cat Peach

8 new courses, including:

  • An F-Zero course
  • A Legend of Zelda course
  • An Excitebike course

And 4 new karts, including:

  • The Blue Falcon
  • The Master Cycle (inspired by The Legend of Zelda series)

The shiny new trailer above will take you through a whirlwind tour of that and more. This may have been my favorite part of the whole broadcast.

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
