Advance purchase two new Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs and get a bonus
Two new downloadable content packs will take the world of Mario Kart™ 8 in directions the franchise has never seen before, while significantly expanding game-play options. The packs, which launch this fall and next spring and are available for advance purchase starting August 27 at $7.99 each (or $11.99 for both when purchased as a bundle), deliver a ton of new content, including first-time crossover characters like Link™ from The Legend of Zelda™ franchise and both Isabelle and the Villager from the Animal Crossing™ series.
Mario Kart 8 owners who advance purchase both packs bundled or individually will get eight new colors of Yoshi and eight new colors of Shy Guy to race with immediately. Starting August 27, to advance purchase the packs, users with a broadband Internet connection can click the new Shop icon in the game or visit the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. Be sure to download the new software update first in order to access the Shop icon in the game.
