It's official - Mario Kart 8 is getting two major DLC packs from Nintendo. The packs are pretty reasonable - $8 apiece (or $12 for both), coming with a whole slew of new characters, karts, and courses. The idea of racing as Link or the Animal Crossing Villager is worth the price of admission alone - so hats off to Nintendo for doing things right.
And Nintendo's no dummy about this - along with the announcement, they included a few screenshots. And a few contained the return of everyone's favorite Mario Kart 8 thing: DEATH STARE LUIGI.
Anyways, here's the details of the packs!
Pack 1: The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 (Release Date: November 2014) - $7.99
Pack 2: Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 (Release Date: May 2015) - $7.99
Pack 1 + Pack 2 Bundle - $11.99
