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.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. 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?
