Get reward points plus cashback with this

Does this come with the 8 coloured Yoshis and Shy Guys which you would have got if you preordered the pack on the Nintendo Store?

Is this not just RRP?

Don't think you do, it's an eShop promotion.

This is more of a heads up that you can buy it from GAME, however it is good for people who have some spare reward points or trade credit, I guess.

Thanks, good to know. Worth ordering from Ninty then

yeah i need to know about this too before i buy it from GAME

I can confirm you DO still get the Yoshi and Shy Guy colours if you buy from GAME.

Also worth noting you can pay by PayPal, which you can't on the eShop.

When's it coming out? Release date for the dlc? Ta

To be clear, do you mean you buy a £25 nintendo card for £20, then use it to buy the Mario Kart DLC, and have £14 left over on the Ninty store?

To be very precise, yes!

Thanks Burky. Just did it, and it worked perfectly

The DLC for £6
Edited by: "LotusJas" 17th Nov 2014

best dlc ive bought in ages. the new tracks are amazing!

Needs Wii U in the title. heat from me.

This is just the standard price for both DLC packs which you can buy off the eShop right now... good for Christmas a present token I guess. Oh, and it's really great

I've got a £15 eshop card to collect from the Argos spend £15 get £6 off deal.

Street fighter Alpha on the VC and this MK8 pass

Don't know if this classes as a deal as it is the RRP (although there is a very generous amount of content for the RRP). I went with the eshop purchase myself as it pushed my premium points high enough to get a £5 voucher

Mario Kart on the N64, 4 player split screen. Those were the days Hmmm, considering buying a Wii U now

Though you can also use Game reward points for this to bring the price down a tad. Then add Quidco or TopCashBack

This method would have gotten you the same amount of premium points too

Didn't know it still gave you them if you bought it third party - good to know, but since the premium thing ends soon doubt I'll hit another £60+ spent on the eshop to make a voucher. Might sway someone else though to go through Game instead of Nintendo

Warning: I ordered this ten days ago and have not been able to get a code from Game despite content pack 1 being available last Thursday. The description now states release in May 2015 (bottom right of the page).

This is maddening since you can buy the Season Pass directly from Nintendo for the same price and immediately get access to content pack 1. To make matters worse the funds (from a gift card) were immediately debited from my account and the Game website states the dlc is immediately "shipped". I've just been onto webchat with Game who said they've issued a refund but there is no sign of this from either their website or any e-mail confirmation yet.

Yeah - Found that out when I bought Mario Kart 8 digital download from Game

Will this have all the dlc coming out for this game or will there be more dlc in the future.

Have they fixed this to allow 3 player with one of you using off screen play on the pad and letting the other two play on the main TV?

I cant believe how annoying I find the unplayable nature of the 3 player mode cramming all 3 players onto the main TV screen.

This has 2 bundles of DLC. There is no word yet on whether there will be more DLC in the future. I suspect that the positive reviews of the first batch coupled with fan interest may lead to more DLC.

Thanks for the reply. I guess what I was trying to say was if there is more dlc will it be covered by the season pass? I thought that would be the case however with the call of duty franchise taking gaming to newer lows, these days a lot of stuff does not make it into the season pass.

11 quid, half available now and the other tracks and characters (included in 11 quid) available in May 2015, I am pretty sure that'll be it till MK8

or even MK9

I think it's important to note that 'season pass' isn't the terminology used by Nintendo. That's GAME's terminology.

So no extra DLC is expected to be covered by this bundle pack. If you have ordered or plan to order amiibo though then you'll have new costume DLC based on what Amiibo you have.

It states download - does anyone know if they actually dispatch the physical card so I can use it as a christmas present? Would rather avoid a code on a post-it note

When I bought the digital download of Mario Kart 8, they sent the code in an email. I haven't seen the physical card in store, maybe you need to call to check?

You just get emailed the code. If you buy it instore then you get given a receipt with the code on. There is no way to get a physical card with the code on, unfortunately.
