    I have been wondering about it for a while now and I think I have officially decided to purchase the DLC, as I'm excited to be able to play as Link and get some new maps. I'm not too excited about the animal crossing dlc though, as I have never played the animal crossing games and have no attachment to them lol. Will you be buying the DLC?

    I'm going to buy the DLC for the new maps. With Mario Kart games we usually have to wait for the next generation to get any new tracks. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with. Do you know how much it will be for the tracks?

    I am thinking about buying this one as the original game was a beauty, a rare treat from Nintendo. I don;t buy DLCs usually, but this will be an exception.

    Definitely, I bought both of them already. The DLC is pretty reasonably priced, and I really liked the new vehicles, tracks and characters. Yoshi bikes all the way!

    I usually don't buy DLC and I probably won't on this one either but who knows, if I eventually see something that I like even if it's just purely for design I still might buy it.

    Are you still playing the game? If you're still playing it all the time I just see it as being worth it to get the DLC from a value point. I haven't slowed down on it yet. Maybe when Smash comes out I'll slow down on Mario Kart but until then I usually play it every other day.

    I'm not totally sold on it. I'll buy the DLC if my wife wants it. She's more of a fan of the game than I am.

    I have to say though, with Link being such a strong stable in the Nintendo ecosystem second only to Mario, I'm shocked Link has never been in Mario Kart until now.

    I'm definitely going to buy both the DLC packs. The amount of content in them relative to the price is pretty much unprecedented these days, especially when compared to other racing games. That alone motivates me to support Nintendo and hope that other developers take a page from their book.

    Beyond that, I've been hoping for more tracks on Mario Kart 8, since although I have enjoyed the selection that's currently in the game, I do wish there were a few more tracks that I actually like in it. I'm not really overjoyed at the fairly derivative character additions, with the exception of Link and the Villager, but the new vehicles are yet another motivation for me to buy it.

    I'm not entirely sold on it, as I never buy the DLCs, but I have to say I am tempted...I'm not sure if I'm going to or not, but I'm definitely more interested than I've ever been before at least. Who knows.

    Not really because I still prefer to play on my PS a lot more but I'm not against buying DLC if it's something I really want to own even if I don't end up using it a lot. I tend not to consider these purchases usually though.

    I'll buy it probably because all of my friends are into this game. Give me more maps and fun time with the crew. Not a day goes by where someone is stopping by to try and beat me.

    This video was just released, and it looks astounding. Definitely give it a watch if you're still on the fence about buying the DLC.

    I am still not sure as to whether or not I am going to buy. I would like to have someone else buy it and give me an honest feedback before trying it. I like the video though.

    That youtube video definitely adds a little incentive on purchasing the DLC. The thing about that bike is how "hyrulian" it looks.

    You wouldn't think they can get a bike that SHOULD be out of its element to look so true to its roots.

    My aunt already purchased the pack and holy crap! Link is beyond awesome! He's definitely a heavy weight racer, so he'll have some balance on him for his bikes. The only thing I hate is that his bike is already heavy, so making turns are difficult! Wasn't much of a fan of the wheels either. The traction of the wheel are a bit more of a hit or a miss, if you don't turn early enough.

    Buy it. Play it. Be happy you bought it.

    The DLC pack is really awesome, Nintendo did a really great job on it, and it's not that expensive, so you should definitely buy it. Hyrule Circuit is an awesome track, I would buy the pack even if it was only this track and the rest crappy stuff, but it isn't! The tracks are great, and it's nice to see GCN Yoshi Circuit in the game once again, though it's stupid that they removed the tunnel shortcut :(

    Whatever DLC they release, I'll more than likely make the purchase. I'm a fan of what's been offered so far.

    I am really having a blast with this DLC! I might be late to the party, but oh man, I can't rave enough about how awesome this DLC is. This is highly recommended to every Mario Kart fan out there.

    I have bought the DLC and I do not regret it. Also, because it's from Nintendo, I can safely say I'll buy the upcoming DLCs and I'll probably won't regret any of it.
