Animal Crossing and Zelda meet Mario Kart 8

Following the first Mercedes themed DLC come two  infinitely more exciting content packs. Each will feature a set of three characters, four vehicles and eight tracks (with extras if you buy both packs!), that expand into the beautiful Nintendo world through favorites such as Zelda, Animal Crossing and more. Individually, each pack will cost $8 while the duo is priced at $13; and here’s what you’ll get:

Pack 1, to be released in November 2014, will offer the choice to play as Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach or Link, while Pack 2, which will be released in May 2015, presents an Animal Crossing villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowser. By buying both, you’ll receive “eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.” 

While the vehicles and tracks haven’t yet been specified, F-Zero’s Blue Falcon kart will make an appearance, along with opportunity to crush friend and foe alike in Wario’s Gold Mine and other classics; and if you’re feeling nostalgic, and/or adventurous, go on ahead to explore the realms of the Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing with your new characters and vehicles.
