New Courses, More Characters And Even More Karts For Mario Kart 8

Over a week ago we showed you an image of supposedly unused graphics for cups in Mario Kart 8. It turns out that these may not be unused after all, instead they could just be dormant. Earlier today, the Nintendo UK Store listed two Digital Download Packs for Mario Kart 8 to pre-order (Pack 1Pack 2). These packs include 6 new characters, 8 new vehicles and 16 new courses! What is very interesting, is the fact that only 3 characters are from the Mario Universe, the other three are special cross-over guests from two franchises.

Check out more exciting details after the break!

Mario Kart 8 Takes A Pit Stop Late Tonight For Maintenance

If you have a gander at the Nintendo Network Status page, you would notice that there will be some planned downtime for online services on Mario Kart 8 due to maintenance tonight and early tomorrow morning. So, if you are a night bird or an early bird and are hoping for some online Mario Kart fun, then unfortunately you will have to detour your time onto offline play momentarily. It is likely that this downtime is to prepare Mario Kart 8 for its big update, which is scheduled to be released tomorrow (27th August 2014). The update aims to improve stability, allow users to download the Mercedes Benz DLC and much more!

Here’s the lowdown for various timezones for your convenience:

  • Europe : 8.50AM to 10AM
  • UK : 7.50AM to 9AM
  • USA (East Coast) : 2.50AM to 4AM
  • USA (West Coast) : 1.50PM to 1AM (Tuesday > Wednesday)
