Mario Kart 8 DLC Is A Heavyweight With 16 New Courses

mariokart8dlcMario Kart 8 is a game that is worth checking out, and is considered to be a killer title for the Nintendo Wii U. This is one example on how a piece of software is able to push hardware sales, and just in case you think that you have already mastered Mario Kart 8, here comes a new DLC that will introduce new drivers and karts, not to mention another 16 more courses that ought to set your pulses racing as you try to discover the shortest way to complete the entire course while picking up all the relevant weapons along the way to help you out in your quest to come out tops.

These two DLC packs will launch later this fall and in spring of 2015, where one can make an advance purchase from August 27 at $7.99 each (or if you would like to pick up both, it would mean forking out $11.99), allowing you to enjoy a slew of new content, and this would also include first-time crossover characters such as Link from The Legend of Zelda franchise and both Isabelle and the Villager from the Animal Crossing series. How will Link fare in a kart, considering he is more of a seafaring creature? Only you as the player will be able to determine the outcome.

In order to entice buyers, there will be a bonus thrown into each purchase, where you will be on the receiving end of eight new colors for Yoshi and Shy Guy, while those who pick up an advance purchase both packs have the advantage of using the Yoshi and Shy Guy characters right away.
