Mario Kart 8 DLC: Link, ACNL, New Courses, and New Karts!

Holy Sweetness!

I can not begin to explain to you how happy I am and how cheesy my giant smile must look.  I am sitting at work and just saw the news of the new DLC for Mario Kart 8!

Mario Kart 8 DLC Tutorial (By Request)

It is still early, and we haven't heard anything official from Nintendo America, but here is what I understand thus far:

DLC Pack 1 $7.99
-Release Towards the end of November 2014
--Karts: 4 New Karts
--Courses: 8 New Courses
--Characters: 3 New Characters Link, Tanooki Suit Mario, Cat Suit Peach

DLC Pack 2  $7.99
-Release May 2015
--Karts: 4 New Karts
--Courses: 8 New Courses
--Characters: 3 New Characters: ACNL Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser

DLC Bonus:
-Bonus 1: 8 Different Colored Yoshis
-Bonus 2: 8 Different Colored Shy Guys
--Bonus 1 and 2 go with the purchase of the two respective DLC
---You can get both DLC Packs for the reduced rate of $11.99

While the new characters and karts are cool and somewhat expected, what I am the most excited abotu is the NEW TRACKS!  This is HUGE and adds even more replay value and fun to an already stellar game on the Nintendo Wii U!

*Update: After my initial post this has all been confirmed and we have prices.  I have added them to the post.  I had a lot of people asking "How do I get the DLC" etc, so I have made a tutorial video.  It should help you out...

I also realize I didn't showcase the new "Mercedes" Free DLC at the end...I will do so in an upcoming recording.  Stay tuned!
