Each Add On Content pack will contain two new cups, each with four courses, which, in total, increases the number of available courses by 50 percent. The Add On Content packs include classics like Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, as well as new courses, some taking place in the worlds of The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. New vehicles will also arrive with each pack, including the Blue Falcon kart representing the F-Zero franchise in the first AOC pack.

Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 - Released: November 2014
Pack 1 includes:3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
4 Vehicles
8 Courses

Mario Kart 8 Pack 2 - Released: May 2015
Pack 2 includes:3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
4 Vehicles
8 Courses

As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.

Intentional leak to offset the backlash against no COD'14 and AC:Rogue? /conspiracy theory

Hopefully these are reasonably priced because they look pretty good.  I wonder if the tracks will be new, old, or a mix of new and old...my guess would be 4 new tracks, 4 remakes in each pack.  I wonder if they'll include Zelda/Animal Crossing themed tracks, seems like it would only make sense.

$12 for both is a steal.


They go on sale tomorrow so I guess it counts as a pre-order? But you get the multicolored Yoshis and Shy Guys unlocked after ordering.

Let's analyze the content a little more, and compare it with current events, hmm?

There's new Zelda being worked on, and the Villager is coming to Smash Bros. Two franchises, two upcoming high profile games. So logically, if we include the mention of F-Zero as a franchise to be represented, we can conclude that a new F-Zero is also currently under development

Yes, that's right. NEW F-ZERO IS FINALLY COMING!! IT'S REALLY REALLY HAPPENING!!!

The best news about this to me is it means the band is getting back together to make 16 more songs.


Can't wait to hear what they have in store for us this time.

Was listed from an European website as 7 pounds each ($roughly $12), so the US price might be $9.99 a piece or $15. There's been sweet deals with eshop cards, the last one was $15 off $50.  Have to keep an eye out for some more but my local BB/kmarts seem to be closing and there's usually an fire sale to go along with it :).

US price is $11.99, and you can pre-order right now.  Just did a grand prix in one of the new Benzes.

It shoulda been $12 so that I wouldn't have 01 leftover.

And they felt the need to plaster the course/character select screens with ugly ads to remind me that the DLC exists.

I went ahead and got a $10 point card just to pre-order this (finally).
Sorry if you thought this bump was that the DLC was available now. :(

Just read an article that confirms that you can set if you want to play online exclusively with the DLC courses, a mix of them, or stick with original and the match maker will pair you up with compatible players. And this does not apply to characters as each game will be able to show others playing as a DLC character even if you did not buy them yourself.


Also, the release date for the first pack is 11/13.
