Mario Kart 8 Gets SpotPass Add for DLC



In Nintendo's recent update, the company patched in a feature to the Wii U to send messages via SpotPass for gamers to see on the Gamepad.

It's nice to see Nintendo take this route for DLC and also to see people overwhelmingly support it, but so far from people's views about this DLC it's less about getting more courses and karts and more about purchasing the pack just to play as Link.

If not, guess there's little reason to purchase it.

Oh, I'm sure that the courses and characters will work online. There would be no reason that they wouldn't. I'm purchasing it because... 16 new tracks!

I thought Link looked off on a bike, too. Pit would seem like a better choice, but I miss the ParaTroopa from Double Dash! Oh, well. I still got the preorder yesterday!
