Kalimari Desert

Mario Kart 8 was arguably one of the most polished entries in the series yet (barring the botched battle mode, argh) and featured a substantial DLC campaign that greatly expanded upon the existent content that came with the disc. Many thought that the DLC was "done right", as it offered an impressive amount of content for a relatively low price, and it certainly made this one of the meatiest Mario Kart games in terms of tracks and karts.

There were two primary packs released, one based on Animal Crossing and one based on The Legend of Zelda, but it's been some time now since they landed on the eShop. Considering that they added quite a lot of content to the base game, it wasn't necessarily expected that Nintendo would continue to support the game with more content releases. While nothing has been confirmed yet, it seems that Nintendo UK is hinting at more DLC coming to Mario Kart 8. A tweet was recently posted showing a screenshot of Kalimari Desert from Mario Kart 64, with the phrase "Good things come to those who wait" and the Mario Kart 8 hashtag. Kalimari Desert most recently made a reappearance in Mario Kart 7 on 3DS, but perhaps we may see it and a few other new tracks come to Mario Kart 8 in the future.

What do you think? Is there a fire somewhere behind this smoke? What tracks would you like to see in a potential third DLC pack? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
