Mario Kart 8 Adding B Dasher Kart in First Wave of DLC

B-Dasher Kart -  Mario Kart 8 - DLC

One of my favorite unique karts in the Mario Kart line is, without a doubt, the B Dasher. It appeared as Mario’s kart in Mario Kart 7, and it featured great speed and acceleration.

Good news for me, and people like me in this regard, then. Nintendo has announced that the B Dasher is jumping into Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U in the first round of the real, deal DLC this fall. Here’s the tweet in question.

That first round of DLC will hit in November of this year. The B Dasher is just one of several additions that will come in the package. Here’s how Nintendo detailed that DLC back when it was announced in August.

Pack 1: The Legend of Zelda Mario Kart 8 (Release Date: November 2014) – $7.99

  • 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
  • 4 Vehicles
  • 8 Courses

If you buy both pieces of DLC, the one due in November and another due next spring, up front for $11.99 total, you’ll immediately unlock unique colors for Yoshi and Shy Guy.

What else are you hoping for from this upcoming content update for Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U?
