HomeRumorHere’s a Look at the Rumored Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack With Expanded Rosters and New Battle Modes Jelani Thompson June 9, 2014 Rumor With E3 2014 underway, it seems as though Nintendo has a few surprises in store – including some for owners of Mario Kart 8. Is your body ready for these supposed leaks? In a supposed E3 2014 leak from a user at the gamrConnect forums, there appears to be an expanded character roster including Professor E. Gadd, Birdo, Kamek and Plessie as well as two new battle modes: Balloon Battle, Shine Thief and Bob-omb Blast! Do you think these rumors could be true? Shine Thief first made its appearance in Mario Kart: Double Dash on the Nintendo GameCube and played similarly to King of the Hill in the sense that the driver holding the trophy would get points whilst it was in his possession. There is no confirmation of these rumors yet, but they seem legitimate. What do you think? Could these rumors be true? Any characters you would like to see that aren’t in the roster yet? What are your thoughts on the two new battle modes? We’d love to know! Sound off in the comments below! Via: Nintendolife Source: GamrConnect Forums Share this post: No related posts.
