Surprising just about no one, Nintendo has announced downloadable content for Mario Kart 8. Well, sort of. Nintendo UK's online store has accidentally spoiled the surprise of two add-ons being prepared for the racer.
Pack 1 arrives in November, which includes four vehicles, eight courses, and three characters (Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link). Nintendo is finally including characters from non-Mario games. The UK website lists the DLC as £7.00, which roughly translates to $11.60.
Pack 2 arrives in May 2015. You actually did read that right. May 2015. That add-on includes four vehicles, eight courses, and another three characters (Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser). It costs the same price, and grabbing both packs unlocks a set of colored Yoshi and Shy Guy variants to play as.
