Holy bang for your buck Captain Rainbow! Ahead of the incoming Mario Kart 8 patch that includes new features and Mercedes DLC carts (free of cost) Nintendo dropped news of their DLC strategy for Mario Kart 8. This has surpassed my expectations in just about every way. TL;DR 16 new tracks, 8 new cars, and 6 new characters at either $7.99 for each of 2 packs or $11.99 for the pair. Hit the jump for the full lowdown on what is included so far.
