Mario Kart fans will argue to death over which game is the best in the series (a pointless endeavour considering the correct answer is 64) but there's certainly some agreement on which was the most disappointing: That old forgotten GameCube flop Double Dash.
With its bizarre z-button racer switching, its generally mangled physics, and the merciless removal of Blue Shell countermeasures, Double Dash hardly represented a vintage Mario Kart experience.
However, there were a few tracks that were pretty excellent, especially Baby Park, as well as this tough little monster:
Yoshi's Circuit is a Double Dash race course shaped as the little dinosaur fella, featuring a neat waterfall shortcut mid-way and a perilously tight corner at the end of his tail.
Mario Kart 8's downloadbale content will come in the form of two separate packs. New characters, tracks, and karts will be added to the game, featuring content from many of Nintendo's other franchises, including The Legend of Zelda, F-Zero, and Animal Crossing.
Each DLC pack will cost $8 (£7), while a bundle of both can be bought for $12 (£11).
The first of these packs is expected to ship in November, and each one features:
- 3 new characters
- 4 new vehicles
- 8 additional courses (half new, half old)
