    According to this UK Nintendo store page, two DLC packs are heading our way in the future, one in November, one in May 2015. They contain two new cups each and also three new characters too. They also expand the characters from Mario games to Link from The Legend of Zelda and also the Villager and Isabelle from the newest installment of Animal Crossing.

    These DLC packages aren't free though. They come at a price of £7.00 each.

    Wonder how they are going to handle the new tracks for online.

    Only come up if everyone in the lobby has the dlc.
    Kick people without the dlc if one is selected
    Everyone can play online, but you have to buy the dlc to do time attack/cups/single race on new tracks.

    Worthwhile DLC in a Nintendo game? I thought I'd never see the day! I like the new characters, especially Link and Dry Bowser. Well done, Ninty!

    Other than the clones of existing characters (Cat Mario & Peach), I'm excited for this.

    maybe there might be new items at some point (from Zelda and AC)

    Zelda item, hook shot
    switch places with the racer that is closest to you
    or
    pull the closest racers to where you are
    or
    pull you to the closest racers to where your are

    AC item
    make a tree grow in the spot you use the item

    Most excited to see the new courses. New characters and vehicles is a nice addition I guess.
