Mario Kart 8 is getting two DLC packs themed around other Nintendo games, it has been revealed.

Up first in November is The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8, which will bring three new characters: Link, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach. It will also feature the return of some old tracks as well as at least one new Zelda themed course and four new vehicles, including an F Zero cart.

Arriving in May will be the Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8, which also brings three fresh characters to the game, consisting of Animal Crossing Villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowser. There will also be an Animal Crossing course to race on as well as the same tracks and vehicles in the other DLC pack.

The DLC is now available to pre-purchase, with each pack costing £7, though buying them together will allow you to get them for £11, granting you a £3 saving. Buying them now will unlock eight new coloured Yoshi’s and eight new coloured Shy Guy’s, which you’re able to use immediately.
