Mario Kart 8 DLC Detailed Alongside Newly Announced 200cc Mode

In today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo provided new details on the upcoming DLC pack for Mario Kart 8. Players who purchase the pack will gain access to Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser, as well as eight new courses. The DLC will be available on April 23  for $7.99, but will download automatically for anyone who purchased the two packs together earlier. New amiibo racer skins will also be added in near future, adding support for amiibo like Sonic, Toad, and Rosalina.

Nintendo also announced that a brand new 200cc mode will be available as a free download on April 23rd, bringing the highest speeds the series has ever seen to every course in the game. Still no word on an improved Battle Mode, but we’ll make due with what we’re given for now.
