Is Mario Kart 8 getting extra characters as DLC?
It’s only a rumour so far, but this interesting picture of an expanded Mario Kart 8 roster has been circulating online recently. It features Diddy Kong, Birdo, Kamek and Plessie (the latter is from Mario 3D World) as playable alongside the existing game’s cast, hinting at a Nintendo E3 announcement of downloadable content featuring more characters for the game. Here’s the picture:
As you can see, it features quite the cast of characters. And it looks pretty realistic too, what with the quality of the icons and the level of detail in the picture. But what do you think? Is this a screenshot of an upcoming piece of DLC for Mario Kart 8, complete with new characters? Or another ingenius fake uploaded online to cause controversy mere days before Nintendo’s E3 presentation?
