The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, and F-Zero to Invade Mario Kart 8 Through New DLC Packs

Somebody over at Nintendo’s official UK store may have been a little click happy today. Just as the Mercedes Benz free DLC pack is about to launch for Mario Kart 8, news of The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, and F-Zero coming to Mario Kart 8 surfaces.

Yes, what you just read seems to be correct. Two huge DLC packs seem to be planned for Mario Kart 8 with the first being released in November, and the second in May of 2015. Each DLC pack will contain three new characters, four new vehicles, and two new cups with four tracks each. Essentially, Mario Kart 8 will have a total of 48 tracks after May of 2015.

The first DLC pack is being dubbed The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 – AOC (add-on content) Pack. This AOC pack will add Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and Link as playable characters, the Blue Falcon vehicle, and 8 tracks with one being Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii.

The second DLC pack will presumably be title Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 – AOC Pack. This pack will bring Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser to Mario Kart 8, as well as four new vehicles, and another two new cups with four tracks each.

Both packs are being advertised at the price of £7.00 (probably $9.99 for North Americans). Also, a bonus for buying both packs is being advertised, as well. This bonus will add eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys. That’s how you provide value to the consumer.

To the dismay of many Super Smash Bros. and Zelda fans, the Demon Lord Ghirahim will be an assist trophy in the new Super Smash Bros. game. Fans, including myself, really wanted Ghirahim to be a new representative for The Legend of Zelda series.

This outfit almost didn’t make the new Super Smash Bros. games, but thanks to a dedicated designer, this outfit was completed in time. This is the costume from the ending of Metroid: Zero Mission, which will also make the 3DS version of the game.

Two of Mega Man’s custom moves will be the Plant Barrier and Beat! One has to wonder what other Mega Man weapons made it into the game.

Super Smash Bros. U – Meta Knight Joins the Battle

Looks like that Meta Knight tease was hinting at his inclusion in the game. Also, Sakurai mentions that Meta Knight’s Up special has been changed to remove the gliding part. Instead, Meta Knight will do a big loop and slash at his opponents twice. It’s possible that other aspects of Meta Knight are being changed, as well. This is obviously being done to bring further balance to the game, but also to silence those that have been vocal about his cheap style.

RCMADIAX Reveals Spikey Walls for Wii U eShop

RCMADIAX is on a roll with their continuing support of the Wii u eShop. Now, they will be bringing a game that is heavily inspired by Flappy Bird to the Wii U eShop.

Spikey Walls puts gamers in control of a fly as they try to avoid walls with spikes by flying through small gaps. If that sounds familiar, it’s because you, at one point, got involved in the Flappy Bird craze in one way or another. The main differences here are the ability to post to Miiverse, and using a button to fly instead of tapping the touchscreen.

Goodbye Galaxy Games sent out a teaser for an upcoming first-person shooter game for the Wii U eShop. This FPS game looks to channel the graphics of old school FPS games like Doom and Quake. Flat, paper-like graphics to represent characters and enemies, with heavily pixelized textures. Nothing else has been said about the game yet, though we can expect some information as early as Gamescom 2014.
