For those who just can’t get enough of the game, there’s an exciting new DLC coming up in the month of November.

The listing is official on Nintendo’s online store in the UK as well as other countries, where the company has confirmed that the racing game is going to get much more exciting. The downloadable content release will bring in all new characters to the race, as the new exciting courses with challenges and vehicles which will give you an advantage over others in the game.
Two New DLCs Promised
The company has promised that Mario Kart 8 will receive two new downloadable content packs. Both of them will have two entirely new cups to race for, with four courses each. That is plenty of new tracks to get into. Some of the courses will be based on the other popular game titles including Excite bike, Animal Crossing and F-Zero. All these are iconic games on the Nintendo platform and being able to see courses from these titles in all new 3D graphics is wonderful news for players who enjoy it. It’s going to be a bit of nostalgia come this November.
