    Update 2: And here's the rest! We've got some interesting stuff in here, including GBA Cheese Land and GBA Ribbon Road, another few highly requested courses!

    Link to all videos related to DLC Pack 2: http://www.gonintendo.com/?https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbCOGQCF6GO0FLMqZ1CVmQVCjoMfpBNss

    The full course list goes as follows (in no particular order):
    Alternate Japanese names (Differences bolded)
    Update: Part of this rumor has been proven accurate with this Japanese announcement video for GCN Baby Park! What do you think about the rest of the rumor? Will it still hold?


    Original: A rumor on NeoGaf has re-surfaced stating that some code meant for Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 was discovered while data-mining DLC Pack 1; namely, being the course names for one of the new cups (plus one). Thanks to the efforts of MrBean35000VR and Chadderz, we now know that the structure of the naming is correct, so there may be some truth to this. The alleged names of course files are as follows:
    The latter two in this set are currently unknown, but it is theorized that "WU_METRO" might be either a city-themed course -or- possibly a Metroid-themed course, and what is most likely "WU_WOODS" can be seen in the DLC Pack 2 announcement graphic.

    What are your thoughts on this? Baby Park was certainly a much-hoped-for course, but how do you feel about the others?

    People liked baby park?
    It's fun for speed running but it's a pretty shitty race map.

    Any bowser level is cool though.

    If Neo Bowser City is to be in the pack, that'll be a lot of fun to drive. Baby Park, though... Eeeeehhhhh not really a fan of it. It's just so simple, although it could be the first MK8 track to have more than three loops.

    Baby Park is good for one reason only: the giant Koopa shells mowing across the entire track. Other than that, it's kinda shit.

    Baby Park will never be the same without the Giant Banana Peels and Bowser Shells. Also, I thought this was a confirmed fake?

    Don't forget the bajillion of items dropped in the floor, having both characters hold items helped that too.

    My question is why not GC Bowser Castle?? Neo Bowser City is fun and all but recent enough being a MK7 track.

    Baby Park? Okay, let's race: 0

    Maybe it's better they add that course as a battle map. ;)

    Duuuuude I wish! Although I always liked Baby Park; it's a course that really comes down to skill, and I like that it had 7 laps (in the original, DS only got 5...), so it made for a more tense race, especially since anything can happen in the last few laps

    Edit: I'm personally hoping that "Metro" is short for "Metroid", but it would probably just a city-themed course...

    Neo bowser city is one of the better levels in MK track history so im all for that. (Altho it will be a killer on 200cc)

    You can bet that they'll do to baby park what they did to the wario stadium level, spruce it up a little and make it more interesting so im not overly against it but quite frankly there are much better tracks in mario kart history that deserve to be re-made. Baby park has already been re-made once, it doesnt need another one.

    So has Yoshi's Island. And SNES Rainbow Road. I'd actually prefer that they re-re-release tracks for DLC, that way it doesn't infringe against the chances of tracks coming in future installments.

    Although, it seems that the unspoken "DLC rules" play a bit differently than the standard ones, so maybe tracks like Wario's Gold Mine have just as much a chance of being a future retro course as all the other previously unused tracks

    It's all about that 200cc but I'm starting to think that 200cc might not be fast enough for me so 250cc could be it.

    That's 200cc? It is fast but I was hoping to exceed my expectations, well it didn't. Still, it'll be better than that slow bugger 150cc.

    Btw, as much as I love Double Dash I hope Baby Park isn't part of DLC 2 'cause that'd just be like NASCAR -- Go around in circles.

    What kind of kart setup/character are you using? Firehopping doesn't always let you win.

    Link + one of the first bikes + standard wheels + rainbow glider

    I don't have a pic but that's what I use. I usually get in first to third place, considering if I have a mushroom for shortcuts and shell/banana to protect myself. It would be useful to have a backup item like the previous Mario Karts have.
