Play as Link and more in Mario Kart 8 with the new DLC

Published on August 27th, 2014 by Gervais D.

That’s right folks. Mario Kart 8 is getting more downloadable content and this time it includes new playable characters, vehicles and courses. Who doesn’t want to play as Link in Mario Kart 8? I know I want to, and for a little extra cash, you can too.

Pack 1 (release date: November 2014) :

  • 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach and Link
  • 4 Vehicles
  • 8 Courses

Mario Kart 8 The Legend of Zelda DLC

Pack 2 (release date: May 2015) :

  • 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowser
  • 4 Vehicles
  • 8 Courses

Mario Kart 8 Animal Crossing DLC

Each pack is priced at $7.99 US by itself, however, if you choose to purchase the bundle offer, you can save $3.99 US. It’s a tempting offer to grab both packs for all of the content. In addition to the savings, those who purchase the bundle deal will also be able to choose from eight different colored Yoshis and Shy Guys when playing the game.
