Where’s Epona? What is going on?
There’s something exciting coming to Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. Two new DCL packs were just announced and each one is packed full of awesomeness. Each pack will contain three new characters, four vehicles, and eight new courses each. The first pack, which comes out in November 2014, will contain Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and Link from the Legend of Zelda Series. Looks like Link ditched Epona for a faster ride. The second pack, which would be coming out later next year in May, will contain Dry Bowser, the Villager and Isabelle from Animal crossing. Each pack will cost $7.99 or you can buy them both for a bundle price of $11.99. You can also pre-purchase the bundles now. If you buy them now, you will get eight new colours for Yoshi and Shy Guy.
A Mercedes DCL pack that was previously announced is available now for Mario Kart 8. The Mercedes pack is free and it includes three new vehicles and a new tire set. The vehicles are the GLA, the 300 SL Roadster and the Silver Arrow. The tire set is for the GLA vehicle.
