Mario Kart 8’s First DLC Pack Will Add Mute City From F-Zero, Zelda-Themed Course



The first DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 will be released on November 13th, Nintendo said today. The pack will add new characters, tracks and vehicles to the game, which are highlighted in the trailer above.


Among this new content is the Master Cycle based on The Legend of Zelda. It looks as though a new course based on the Zelda series will be available in the game as well. Meanwhile, Mute City from F-Zero will be one of the new courses, too. The DLC pack will cost $7.99.



Additionally, Nintendo have announced what their Amiibo figurines will do in Mario Kart 8. When players tap a Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Captain Falcon, Fox, Samus or Kirby Amiibo figure on the Wii U GamePad, they’ll receive a Mii racing suit themed to that particular Amiibo character.


Amiibos will begin rolling out on November 21st, alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
