Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming Later This Month

Mario Kart 8's second DLC pack will release on April 23, Nintendo CEO and president Satoru Iwata revealed during yesterday's Direct broadcast.

This add-on bundle of Animal Crossing-themed digital goodness includes a whopping 8 new tracks, as well as new characters. Soon you'll be able to race as the Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser.

On top of that, the Big N revealed that a new difficulty option is being added to the popular Wii U racer. On April 23 as a free download, every course in Mario Kart 8 will allow players to select the 200cc class, which ups the speed from its previous 150cc max.
