If you haven’t already pre-purchased the upcoming Mario Kart 8 downloadable content, due out this November and May 2015, then this latest reveal might just be enough reason to take the plunge.

Nintendo has released a new trailer revealing Yoshi Circuit from the 2003 GameCube series entry, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, will be appearing in The Legend of Zelda x Mario Kart 8 DLC pack.

This marks the second time Yoshi Circuit has been remade since its original GameCube début in the series, with the first being an appearance in Mario Kart DS. Excluding SNES tracks featured in Super Circuit and then in newer entries, this happens to be the first time a track beyond the original era in the Mario Kart series has been remade twice, and featured three times overall.

In addition to Yoshi Circuit, a new kart known as the Tanooki Buggy has been shown off, celebrating the recent success of the Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario 3D Land games.

This latest reveal follows a tweet from Nintendo earlier this month that teased concept art of Link’s new ride, The Master Cycle. It also leaves the November pack looking like this:

  • 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
  • 4 Vehicles: Blue Falcon, B Dasher, The Master Cycle, Tanooki Buggy
  • 8 Courses including Wario's Gold Mine (MK Wii), Yoshi Circuit (NGC), and an F-Zero & Excitebike track (TBC)
