Mario Kart 8 will be getting more extra racers and tracks this November, Nintendo has announced.
According to the Nintendo UK Store, the company is planning two add-on packs. Each will include two new cups with four courses, along with new vehicles and characters. Notably, this is bringing in characters and vehicles from outside the Mario universe.
The first pack, releasing in November, will include Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and Link, four new vehicles, and eight courses. One of those new vehicles will be the Blue Falcon from F-Zero. he second pack, coming in May, includes Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser, plus four vehicles and eight courses. Purchasing both, either as a bundle or separately, will also net you eight differently colored Yoshis and Shy Guys.
These have only been announced for Europe at this time, for 7 pounds each (approximately $12). The addition of non-Mario characters could be for use with the upcoming Amiibo figurines, which Nintendo has stated will work with Mario Kart 8. We've contacted Nintendo for comment.
