Link Leads A Lineup Of 6 Characters Coming In Mario Kart 8 DLC

Update: DLC packs will be priced at $10 for a single pack and $16 for both packs in Australia.

Nintendo has revealed brand new DLC coming to Mario Kart 8. There will be two DLC packs which will each contain two new cups, each with four courses. Classic courses such as Wario’s Gold Mine and new courses from the world of The Legend Of Zelda and Animal crossing will be coming to the game. Also revealed to be coming is the Blue Falcon kart from F-Zero. 

The weirdest thing seems to be that the second DLC pack won’t be released until May 2015. Prices for Australia are yet to be announced.

3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
