MK8 Scrn Mute City Mario01

It's now just a week before the first batch of DLC for Mario Kart 8 arrives; while it may seem slightly peculiar to be hyped for paid DLC, we suspect a good number of Nintendo fans are eagerly awaiting this pack's arrival. For a thoroughly reasonable price there'll be a decent amount of content, and the fact that iconic franchises such as The Legend of Zelda and F-Zero are featuring takes it — we hope — to another level.

This first pack will certainly bring a handsome expansion to MK8, and below are the details — if you missed them before — of what's coming.

  • 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
  • 4 Vehicles: Blue Falcon, B Dasher, The Master Cycle, Tanooki Buggy
  • 8 Courses as follows:

Triforce Cup: Wario's Gold Mine (Wii), Rainbow Road (SNES), Ice Ice Outpost, Hyrule Circuit
Egg Cup: Yoshi Circuit (GameCube), Excitebike Arena, Dragon Driftway, Mute City

Keen to build anticipation, Nintendo of America has released a new overview video for the first pack; even though we know what's included, it's another chance to see some additional footage of the new tracks, in particular.

Check it out below and let us know whether you'll be jumping into this DLC on 13th November.
