Nintendo has released a new trailer to show off the goods within their upcoming Mario Kart 8 x Animal Crossing DLC pack. Just like the Mario Kart 8 x Legend of Zelda DLC that came out in November, the second round of DLC will introduce 3 new characters (4 if you count both Villager skins), 4 new vehicles, and 8 new tracks – 4 new and 4 retro.

The new characters include the aforementioned Villagers, Isabelle from Animal Crossing and Dry Bowser. The new karts are the Streetle, City Tripper, Bowser Trike and P-Wing. The tracks look spectacular as always. In the retro department, we have Baby Park from Mario Kart: Double Dash (Yes!!), Ribbon Road (GBA), Neo Bowser City (Mario Kart 7), and Cheese Land (GBA).

As far as new tracks go, we have the Animal Crossing track we’ve seen before which changes seasons each time you race on it. Then there’s also Nature Road, Lingling Metro (which looks to be lovingly inspired by Toad’s Turnpike), and Big Blue. Yes, the F-Zero Big Blue, which puts us at two F-Zero tracks within Mario Kart 8. Big Blue is also the second 1 lap race in the game à la Mount Wario.

All of the new content becomes available alongside the new 200cc mode on April 23rd. You can purchase it for $7.99. Checkout the new trailer below.

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
