Mario Kart 8 Animal Crossing DLC Launch Trailer Looks Awesome

Animal Crossing is joining the Mario Kart races next week, so check out what it’s bringing to the table in the new DLC launch trailer.

Next week owners of Mario Kart 8 will be able to download the second DLC pack for the game, with this one focusing on Animal Crossing. Now a launch trailer has been released for the DLC pack, showcasing all of the stuff you can expect to play around with.

The DLC pack comes packed with 3 new characters (Villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowers), 4 vehicles (two being the Streetle and City Tripper) and 8 new courses through 2 new cups. The download requires at least 1 GB of available storage space.

The Animal Crossing characters look great in HD, making me wish that Nintendo would hurry up and make an Animal Crossing for the Wii U already. Dry Bowser is also there, which I guess is cool, too!

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 launches on April 23rd, 2015. Check out the launch trailer for it below. 

Mario Kart 8’s 200cc Class Is Ridiculously Fast

If you thought 150cc was fast, just wait until you see 200cc!

Nintendo is set to update Mario Kart 8 on April 23rd, and when that update goes live gamers will be finding a brand new speed class to check out. That class will be 200cc, which is a step up from the previous fastest class 150cc.

Just to give you an idea of how much faster you can expect things to move with 200cc, Nintendo has provided a video that compares 150cc and 200cc, and you can check that video out below. 

Yup, that’s pretty dang fast! Mario Kart 8 is also set to receive its second DLC pack soon, with this one being Animal Crossing themed.
