Mario Kart 8 Japanese DLC trailer tours Yoshi Circuit

A new Japanese trailer for Mario Kart 8's first DLC pack shows off the new-look Yoshi Circuit, as well as Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and more Yoshis than you can shake a stick at.


The first DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 is set to arrive in just a few short weeks. So Nintendo is offering a small glimpse into one of the pack's featured courses: the classic Yoshi Circuit from the GameCube's Mario Kart: Double Dash.

In addition to showing the updated layout of the classic course, the Japanese trailer offers a look at some of the characters set to be included. That means a first look at Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and the various colored Yoshis that are included with purchase of both this DLC pack and the next one set to arrive in May 2015. Conspicuous by his absence is Link from The Legend of Zelda, who is also slated to ride in with the new DLC.

Get a look at the new-look Yoshi Circuit in the trailer below. The first Mario Kart 8 DLC pack is set to hit in November.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
