Advance purchase starting 8/27/2014

Starting on August 27, you'll be able to advance purchase Pack 1, Pack 2, or the Pack 1 + Pack 2 Bundle either through the Shop section* in Mario Kart 8 (as shown) or Nintendo eShop.

Those who advance purchase both packs can begin using the Yoshi and Shy Guy characters immediately.

You will be able to download DLC when it becomes available. Pack 1 will be available in November 2014, and Pack 2 will be available in May of 2015.

You can cancel your advance purchase by contacting Nintendo Customer Service before the first DLC pack is released.

Both packs combined require more than 2.0 GB of storage space. An external USB hard drive may be required to download this software from the Nintendo eShop. To learn more about storage options, click here.

Mario Kart 8 DLC can be downloaded only in regions where the Nintendo eShop is available.
