Nintendo will be adding new DLC to the WiiU’s most popular game — Mario kart.

Link joins Mario in the first of two of DLC for Mario Kart 8. The upcoming add-on will be available this November on Nintendo’s E-Shop while the second DLC will be available May 2015.

The $7 add-on is giving players three new characters (Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach), four new vehicles, and eight courses with one of them being the world of Legend of Zelda.

The second add-on (presumably the same price) will include the same rationing of each type of add-on, with the three new characters being Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser.

The eight new courses in each add-on will be part of sectioned courses typically executed in a Mario Kart game with the tracks being divided up into groups of four

Those who purchase both add-ons together will also receive eight different-colored Yoshis and eight different colored Shy Guys as a bonus that can be used immediately.
