One of our favorite video game releases of 2014 was undoubtedly Mario Kart 8, the latest release in Nintendo’s trademark and chaotic racing series. After releasing the first DLC pack in the series’ history last November, Nintendo has made the second pack available starting today, as well as adding an intense new game mode to the overall experience.
DLC pack number two includes several new additions to the main game mode, including racers and courses inspired by Nintendo’s popular franchise Animal Crossing, as well as all-new tracks and remastered tracks from previous Mario Kart games on previous Nintendo game systems. Included in DLC pack two is the following:
- Animal Crossing
- Big Blue
- Super Bell Subway
- Wild Woods
- Baby Park (GCN)
- Cheese Land (GBA)
- Koopa City / Neo Bowser City (3DS)
- Ribbon Road (GBA)
- Villager (Boy and Girl)
- Dry Bowser
- Bone Rattler
- City Tripper
- The Streetle
Also debuting in the game’s latest content update is the addition of a new racing mode: 200cc. This joins the previous 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and “mirror” mode and increases the speed of races pretty significantly, adding a greater level of importance to the size of your racer, and your ability to brake while trying to take a course’s tight corners. 200cc mode can be unlocked for free by simply downloading content update 4.0 to your Wii U console by simply starting the game up.
Each DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 is available for $7.99, or you can buy both at once for $11.99. As far as we know, no other DLC content is planned for the game. For more on Mario Kart and big news surrounding video games and Nintendo, keep an eye on GeekNation!
