Mario Kart 8 DLC Bundle pack (includes pack 1 and 2) £9.99 @ smyths stores

45
Found 25th Apr 2015
all smyths stores are installing e-shop stations over this week and next
the dlc bundle pack is £9.99 instead of the £11.99 from Nintendo directly

The price direct from the eShop is £11, not £11.99, and buying direct works out at £9.60 if you buy discounted credit at cdkeys.com (£21.84 for £25 credit, after 5% FaceBook like discount).

Awesome.

Just paid £11 lol great find

If you have any star points on club Nintendo, pack one is "free"

While we're taken for a f*cking ride for DLC by just about everyone at the moment, nice to see it's not a hole Nintendo have fallen into (yet). Packs for MK8 are great value, I think. Hot.

What stores have the pods? Is this deal even availible yet?

I agree with that in regards to MK8 but I'm definietly on the verge of selling mine with all this Amiibo garbage.
Yes I buy Infinity characters but they are tied to 1 game! amiibos are popping up everywhere

The fact that you need an Amiibo to unlock certain features in Mario Party 8 is pretty shocking and with Amiibos for Yoshi and Splatoon coming I don't see it ending

Heat added . Fantastic if your on a budget .

Sweet, you just saved me a few quid. Thank-you and have some heat!

How? Please explain.

You collect points from Nintendo games then exchange them for the dlc pack, I think its 2100 points.

I don't know about Mario Party 10 or the new Yoshi game, but I know that Splatoon's amiibo functionality is said to be just adding a few new 'challenges', which is essentially more objectives on one mode out of a broad feature list. It's more playtime, not new gameplay, nor new maps or characters.

Although I believe they do unlock costumes and weapons, these are earnt by completing the challenges, like many others already in the game. They just give you a little extra, so based on the information we have now, not having them is no real detriment unless you play and complete absolutely everything else in the game and need more (at which point you could just borrow or buy an amiibo and add on the extra challenges like DLC but probably cheaper).

Though I do think the game will probably have real DLC later on so the amiibo matter is really much ado about nothing.
p.s. I'm not sure how amiibo being usable in multiple games can be anything but a positive feature over disney infinity.

Splatoon is also adding weapons. (It is not specified whether they are just reskins or new weapons entirely). Also remains to be seen whether the best weapon is one of those ones or not etc.

Always a catch with Nintendo. (£25 pre order for this has to be).

Biggest swizz with this DLC was buying the twin pack 6 months ago directly on the console (£15 approx) to find out, AFTER it was bought, that you only got half of it and the other half would follow this year. Got it now though, and the Animal Crossing track is pretty good.

I agree, I hate DLC and everything it represents but the MK8 DLC packs have been fantastic value for money and have given a lot of people reason to pick up the game and get back in to it again. The only other DLC I have ever purchased is TLOU: Left Behind.

It couldn't really have been made any clearer that the second pack wouldn't come until May 2015. Did you even read anything on the screen before you purchased?

So you don't think that purposefully leaving out features in a game that isn't even ready for release is OK?
You're then expect you to spend another £10 along with the original cost of game to get the complete package!

When it was just a Smash Bros thing I could understand why they did it but now it's actually pretty shocking. Definietly not a positive thing in my book

I have loads of points and I have seen american nintendo store give DLC points but not the UK one. Is this up on the Uk nintendo club now? Also when does the nintendo club close?

Believe it closes in September.

Anyone know how big the download is? Would it be ok on my basic wii u?

2 quid is better than nothing for those going anyway, but I'm sure the petrol would cost more to get me to Smyths.

It's always been £11

Well worth £10!!!! Extra tracks alone are worth that. Keeps the game interesting and not repetitive.

50 "good" ratings, and 3 bad ones. They're fine.

uk.trustpilot.com/rev…com

good deal from smyths, saving a precious pound over the direct price +heat

Since this is only £11 on nintendo eshop this deal is actually not so hot if you're willing to put a bit of extra money in up front as you can buy nintendo eshop credit online for 15-20% off (search "eshop card" here on hukd) making the same DLC cost you roughly between £8.80 and £9.50 in terms of what £11 credit would set you back...
Either way the main post should be updated because it's not £11.99 from nintendo directly, makes people vote hot since it appears more of a discount than it actually is...

What? Haven't you just completely misunderstood everything I said? They're not "leaving out features", both because they're not leaving anything out and because they are not features.
Does it matter if it's not ready for release? As far as rhetorical questions go, would it be any better if features were left out of a game which is for some reason already ready for release?

You're not then expected to do anything (except maybe just play the game). Like I said, not only are the unlocks minor, but you don't even have to buy the amiibo.
Smash Bros doesn't have anything locked behind amiibos so that's another issue entirely.

Have you played Mario Party 10? there's a whole section of the game locked unless you have an Amiibo.

Also if you read my message I said I get the Smash Bros feature and levelling up your own personal Amiibo ect. but trying to use them on every game after seems exploitive.

In regards to leaving things out of games that aren't ready for release...

GAME DEV: Here's 13 guns that you'll be able to use in game X and here's 20 bonus levels we designed, nothing major but they're pretty fun...

NINTENDO EXEC: Let's lock out 5 guns and all the bonus levels and the player will have to buy an Amiibo to unlock them.

That's the reality of the situation

Oh I totally agree, the amiibo thing is getting utterly ridiculous, never mind the distribution of them.

Just ordered from MMOGA - really dodgy, paid by paypal, and they sent a email saying they needed verification and requested a automated telephone approval. This did not work, and then a very suspicious email arrived requesting I send them a photocopy of my passport to verify signature and address!!! Do not use the supplier, I believe they are scammers - Avoid!!!

It's not £11.99 from Nintendo. It's just £11. A saving of £2 is ok if you were already in the toy store if you have to travel there to get this deal then I'm sure you've paid more than £2 in travel/fuel etc

No, I haven't played Mario Party 10, I literally started my post with the words "I don't know about Mario Party 10", so that should be pretty obvious. I'm not going to disagree with you on that, but I have read a lot about Splatoon, and the four lines after that were explaining what I have heard about Splatoon, and how it is not the same as what you are saying.

From what we currently know about Splatoon there is no reason other than cynicism to believe that the few extra weapons are anything other than a bonus, especially given the very high likelihood that they are either just reskins of existing weapons (evidence: here, the first two are the common roller and charger, and for further proof it's described here as "charger"), and/or they are just more weapons to mix things up in single player mode. It's unclear at this point, but there's my evidence.

As for 'locked levels', as I said they're not really levels they're 'challenges' on existing levels, and I'll quote on this one "So here I am back in that same mission I just played... and I've got a roller now. At first glance this is going to look like the same map I just played- which it is." amiibo explained 13 minutes in

Smash Bros doesn't have anything locked behind amiibos, that's why I said it is another issue entirely. But if your point with that is that you're ok with smash amiibo but you don't like them being used for multiple games, that's what I thought before, and why I said from the start "I'm not sure how amiibo being usable in multiple games can be anything but a positive feature over disney infinity."
How can it possibly be a complaint that something you bought (or borrowed) can be more useful?

You sound like an idiot trying to use Splatoon as evidence, we don't know yet so how can that be your basis to disagree with my point?

I've actually played Mario Party 10 and Treasure Tracker so I know what I'm talking about, also the scenario I used was hypothetical.

I not going to argue about it as you can't seem to comprehend it but put it this way. If amiibos weren't around all the reskins, bonus missions, costumes etc would be included in the game for free

For most folks they just send the code. And then for others they start asking for photocopies of your passport and signature and stuff.. very dodgy, seems they only do this to a few to keep the ratings up but they are doing it. And now they have your email and address.

Well, for one because you mentioned splatoon from your first post, and for another because we actually do have evidence on this as opposed to your blind future speculation about unannounced games with amiibo that don't even exist yet.

If you still would prefer to make up boardroom stories as your version of reality I won't stop you, but don't call me an idiot for providing firm sources to back up my points. Try proving yours instead of just name calling. I am having no trouble comprehending your pessimism. Your closing point is beyond all doubt not true, not only with smash bros as an obvious counter example, but because micro DLC is an industry practice dating back years before amiibo.

If you want to bring Captain Toad into this too, that was just a little bonus objective thrown into each level, no new levels, no new unlocks. It's an incentive to replay existing levels. If you think that's unfair, you might as well go replay all the levels and try to tap all the palm trees. There's another 'bonus mission'- you can have that one for free!
