The Nintendo Official UK Store has inadvertently leaked the existence of two incoming Mario Kart 8 add-on content packs.

Each will contain two new Cups themselves comprising of four courses, three new characters and four new vehicle options for you to choose from. The first, The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 pack will arrive in November 2014 and introduce Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach and Link as playable racers, with F-Zero referenced with a slick Blue Falcon kart and accompanying course.

This will be followed by a second Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 pack in May 2015, which will add the Villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowser to the playable character roster.

Priced at £7 each, those that purchase both – either bundled or separately – will receive eight different-coloured Yoshis and Shy Guys to race as. That’s four new Cups, sixteen new courses, six new characters and eight new vehicle choices. Excited? We are!
