We bring an interesting compilation related to one of the most beloved franchises by nintenderos. It is indeed about Mario Kart and more specifically 8 Deluxe and its DLC: we bring character requests.
Characters that would fit in the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC
The text below has been shared by GameRant and compiles all the characters that would fit in the DLC of this title. Many of them are already available in Mario Kart Tour, but it would be great to have them in 8 Deluxe as well.
It hasn’t been confirmed that the DLC will include characters other than the 48 new tracks, but it would certainly be interesting to see new racers as well. These are the petitions they have collected:
- Notable absences from previous Mario Kart:
- Characters added to Mario Kart Tour:
- Dixie Kong
- Captain Toad
We would add other Mario Kart Tour characters like King Bob-Omb, Caco Gazapo or Topo Monty. And you?
In the list below, we remind you of all the tracks included in the first round of bonus tracks of the DLC announced in the Nintendo Direct. Remember that can be played for free. They are the following:
Golden Champion Cup
- Boulevards of Paris (Tour)
- Circuit Toad (3DS)
- Mount Chocolate (N64)
- Coconut Center (Wii)
Rattle Fortuna Cup
- Tokyo Circuit (Tour)
- Mushroom Hills (DS)
- Celestial Garden (GBA)
- Ninja Mansion (Tour)
Aside from these eight tracks, no more circuits have been shown from the following rounds of bonus tracks.
We also remind you of the details of this DLC:
