Rejoice, Mario Kart 8 fans! The first DLC pack has now been released, alongside the 3.0 update, adding amiibo support to the game.
The 221MB-sized update adds amiibo support to the game, ready for when Nintendo rolls out the first wave of amiibo on November 21st. Pressing the + button (or Start) on the home screen in-game will take you to the amiibo menu. Players will be able to scan compatible amiibo to unlock Mii Racing Suits.
The DLC pack is a sizable 687MB, and includes three new characters: Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach. It also includes four new vehicles, including the Master Cycle, and 8 new tracks – including Hyrule Circuit. It is available to purchase now for $7.99, or can be bought in a bundle with the second DLC pack, scheduled to release early next year.
