Mario Kart 8 Zelda Pack 1 DLC Available Now!

The long awaited Zelda Pack for Mario Kart 8 DLC is finally here! Available now from the eShop or in the Mario Kart 8 shop, it should be in your Wii U console if you have already pre-ordered it. If not, you can purchase it for $7.99, or the bundle for both packs for $11.99. Start your engines, and get racing on three retro courses and five new courses, as Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach, in four new vehicles! Enjoy your new Zelda pack! You can also grab costumes for your Mii by using your Amiibo figurines, too! However, this is no good unless you’re part of the media. Amiibo figurines will go on sale later this month. The Animal Crossing Pack can also be purchased now for $7.99, but it will not arrive until May 2015. The update will run you 221 MB, while the DLC update will run you 687 MB.

In addition to Mario Kart 8, it is being bundled with Wii Us pre-installed for those of you in Japan. Grab the bundle there if you live there and have not gotten into getting a Wii U until now. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is also on the way, too.

Also in Japan, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is now available! Make your way through in a series of puzzles, collecting diamonds and coins along the way. The adventure comes to North America on Friday, December 5, 2014, with the European markets on Friday, January 2, 2015, with Australia on the day after.

Finally, for those of you thinking of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U digitally, you can now pre-load the game! Do so to download it to your Wii U to avoid having a large download on release day! You cannot play until then, as the last bit of the content will not be downloaded until the day of the release. This pre-load tactic is only available in North America.

I believe so. The update might be on the eShop, but I haven’t checked yet.

I’ve recently played the new DLC and here are my thoughts. Character’s could use some work. Personally, I enjoy Tanooki Mario, but that’s it. The vehicles are very well balanced but nothing too special (Except B-Dasher). Besides that, the tracks are absolutely LOVE the tracks. Mute City, Ice Ice, Hyrule, Yoshi, and Wario are REALLY fun! For those who don’t have it yet, I highly recommend buying it (Worth the money)!
