Here’s A Look At Mario Kart 8’s New Excitebike Arena Race Course



In addition to Yoshi’s Circuit, the first DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 will also include a race course based on Excitebike. Nintendo showed this course off in a trailer this morning, and you can check it out above.


The first DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 will be made available in November. It will include eight new courses for the game, three new characters (Link, Cat Peach, Tanooki Mario), and four new vehicles (one of which is confirmed to be the Zelda-themed Master Cycle). It will cost $7.99.


Later, a second DLC pack for the game will be released in May 2015.
