The Nintendo UK Store has announced the addition of two add-on content packs for Mario Kart 8, and they’re bringing in characters, karts and tracks from across the Nintendoverse.
According to the site, each pack includes three new characters, four karts, and eight courses. The newly added tracks will be comprised of raceways from The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing, as well as old favorites such as Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii.
The first of the two AOC packs comes out this November, and includes Link, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach as new racers. The pack also comes with the Blue Falcon kart from F-Zero, along with three others. In May 2015, the second pack will arrive, and players will get to race with Isabelle and the Villager from Animal Crossing, and Dry Bowser.
By purchasing both packs, players will be treated to eight more Yoshis and eight Shy Guys in a variety of colors. Each pack is priced at £7.00.
Update: Both packs will be available in North America for $7.99, or you can purchase them both as a bundle for $11.99. Each download will require at least 1GB of free space on your Wii U.
