The first round of paid downloadable content for Nintendo's Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U is just weeks away, and after teasing the audience with new characters and vehicles in the recent past, the company is finally showing off a new track. Or, rather, a new old track. Returning from the GameCube's Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is everyone's favorite course shaped like a dinosaur, Yoshi Circuit. Check out its high definition makeover in this new trailer which also showcases new characters Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach.
Yoshi Circuit was one of my favorite Double Dash!! tracks and I'm glad to see it reborn here so I can finally play it without the two characters per kart mechanic that never really appealed to me. With a healthy mix of retro tracks and new creations in store for this new DLC, I believe we're in good hands. Nintendo could continue to create new packs like this for years to come and I'd probably buy them all. They'll keep Mario Kart 8 expanding and feeling fresh long past its traditional expiration date.
