It shouldn't be too surprising, but Mario Kart 8 will not only be getting upcoming DLC, but it'll also be getting Amiibo support. Following the release of the latest DLC trailer, complete with F-Zero and Legend of Zelda music, Nintendo announced how the upcoming figures will be used.
Scanning Amiibo figures will add that character's suits into Mario Kart 8 for the Mii characters. Ten of the Amiibo characters, including Donkey Kong, Fox, Samus, and others, will be supported.
Mario Kart 8's first DLC pack also has an official release date. It will release on November 13.
