    From what I understand, if you get both, whether together or one later than another, your roster will also include multiple colored versions of Yoshi and Shy Guy.

    I'm guessing it'll just play out normally but you just need to buy the DLC in order to use those characters.

    My best guess would be that whenever you start Mario Kart 8, the game will scan the HDD for any DLC, if no DLC is found then you'd be put with a certain group of people. Same for those who do have DLC.

    I believe the Yoshis and Shy Guys will be part of the Mercedes patch, and then accessible for use when you purchase both DLC. That way, even if you didn't purchase the DLC, you won't be limited to which races to join. For the tracks, karts, and other characters, I don't know. Perhaps they'll do they're doing with the Yoshis and Shy Guys. Put the characters and karts in patches to be released as each of those DLC gets released, and then just limit it by the tracks. Then again, that would make the idea that 8 tracks would be the 1GB and not the tracks, karts and characters together.

    Is it just me, or are some of these characters in the new Smash Bros?

    I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I'm torn at the moment.

    12 bucks for both ?! Nintendo just won the DLC race for me. Cheap DLC pack with that many content ? Nintendo just won that race.

    This is how you do DLC right, actual content that's worth purchasing and, well has content worth purchasing. More courses, more characters, hell yeah! Now for them to fix the shitty battle mode....

    Nintendo may not be getting a lot of it these days, but they can take some more of my money for this...

    Not all companies do shit DLC though. Nintendo could have added this in an update too :P

    I'm a bit surprised it costs extra. Didn't Nintendo at some point say they won't be charging for DLC? :O
