Mario Kart fans can now download the Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 from the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, adding new karts, tracks and characters.

The first DLC pack has been a long time coming and certainly adds in plenty of content for those still playing Nintendo's racer. 

Here's what you get for £7.99:


Tanooki Mario
Cat Peach


Blue Falcon
B Dasher
Master Cycle
Tanooki Kart

Triforce Cup Tracks

Wario’s Gold Mine (Wii), 
Rainbow Road (SNES),
Ice Ice Outpost, 
Hyrule Circuit

Egg Cup Tracks

Yoshi Circuit (GameCube) 
Excitebike Arena
Dragon Driftway
Mute City

A second instalment of Mario Kart 8 DLC, titled “Pack 2: Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8,” will be released at the end of May 2015.

Mario Kart 8 is also compatible with amiibo, allowing you to give costumes to your Mii depending on the amiibo you use.

Love the fact that I can just turn on the gamepad and quickly download it. Shame I have to work at 5.30 ... definitely will be having a late night when I get back! Bring on smash in 15 days !

Great DLC, just spent 2 hours familiarizing myself with it before taking it online. Makes me want to buy a Captain Falcon Amiibo just so I can ride round Mute City in the Blue Falcon as Captain Falcon ;)
