More On: Mario Kart 8 Nintendo Amiibo

Fresh from yesterday's Nintendo Direct is a wealth of new content coming to Mario Kart 8. First up is the second DLC pack, which has been pushed up from May to April 23rd. It includes the long-awaited Animal Crossing characters and track. Also available are new Amiibo-enabled racing suites, including Mega Man, Pac-Man and Sonic.

Finally there's a brand new 200cc option. This blisteringly fast engine size is basically an expert mode for the game, and it also arrives on the 23rd, for free. I'm glad Nintendo continues to support Mario Kart 8 like this; with more tracks and characters it could be the ultimate Mario Kart game.
