Wii U eShop this week: Mario Kart 8 DLC is here!


The DLC that Nintendo teased in the last Nintendo Direct earlier this month is finally upon us! Get ready to race at 200cc speeds even if you’re not planning on purchasing the new DLC Pack 2, because that’s an addition that will be added to the base game regardless of whether you purchase the DLC. If you do decide you want to get the DLC, you can get a discount on it if you purchase Pack 1 and Pack 2 together.

Mewtwo is also headed to the Super Smash Bros. arena for everyone this week, rather than just those people who got both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game. He’ll set you back $5, but if you’ve been waiting for him now is your chance.
