Link, Isabelle, and more coming to Mario Kart 8 ⊟
What. Not sure if this reveal was accidental, but Nintendo UK’s official site posted listings for two upcoming downloadable content packs for Mario Kart 8.
The Zelda pack, coming this November, includes:
- 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
- 4 Vehicles (is that a Blue Falcon from F-Zero?)
- 8 Courses
The Animal Crossing pack isn’t due until May 2015:
- 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses
Each pack is priced at £7.00 or the UK, or around $11.60. The listings note, “As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.”
Did you know the lumpy-headed scientist you chuck around in the bonus rooms in Wario Land 4, Dr. Arewo Stein, is actually from For the Frog the Bell Tolls?

Today Nintendo launched a new Miiverse community called Camp Miiverse!
The rules are simple enough, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the next couple of weeks, Nintendo will post about a challenge for a game and you’ll need to post the results to Miiverse to complete it. This weekend the goal is to hit a Home Run in Wii Sports Club: Baseball, screenshot it, and either tag it as Team Mario or Team Zelda.
It’s almost reminiscent of Nintendo’s Camp Hyrule of yesteryear, just a little less flashy. No cabin sorting, camp map, or (as far as I can tell) prizes, but given where it’s being hosted, I think that we can let it slide.
Nintendo hasn’t had a virtual summer camp in a number of years, with fans attempting to recreate the experience to fill the void, so if you want to experience it from the real deal, this year you’ve got a good shot!
A fun little game I call “Literal Game Titles”. Try to guess the game’s title that is literally shown in the video before its revealed!!
How to draw Kirby. Following the steps introduced by Kirby’s Adventure.
Tingle hijacking Balloon Fight
This game was only sold to lucky Club Nintendo Japan members who achieved Platinum status in 2006. It was a choice between this or a Wii Remote battery cover with your Mii’s face on it.
He’s a goofy side character in the Legend of Zelda game. He first showed up in Majora’s Mask almost 15 years ago and sold you maps.
He played a bigger role in Wind Waker where you had to rescue him from prison and then (on the Gamecube) you could use him as a co-op player by connecting a GBA. He also had a whole island to call home where he would help out with the maps in the game’s Triforce Shard Hunt.
Tingle hasn’t had a major role in a Zelda game for awhile but he did have two adventures on the DS where he played the star and a spinoff where he basically took over Balloon Fight.
He has two younger twin brothers and another adopted brother that got shipwrecked on Tingle’s Island where Tingle made him part of the family by forcing him to keep the giant Tingle Tower in constant rotation at all times.
So clearly he possess all the qualities of a Hyrule Warrior
