The excellent first piece of paid-for DLC was released for Mario Kart 8 on Thursday, and it truly is a wonderful download, worthy of your hard earned money.

We've waved lyrical about how great it is, but if for some reason you aren't yet convinced, allow us to push you off the fence with this video of Link, Tanooki Mario & Cat Peach racing around the eight new tracks in the four new vehicles - All in beautiful 1080p, 60fps footage. You'll need to be watching this video using the Chrome browser to get the full effect, and your eyes will love you for it. Click that "cog" icon in the bottom right of the screen, select 1080p60 and you'll be away.
