Between now and the end of the month, we have a lot happening, digital-wise. This is just a quick note to remind you and your readers about what Nintendo has coming up, including the launch of amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits.
- Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 (available now): By now you probably already know about the second DLC pack, which adds three new characters, eight new tracks and four new vehicles. It’s available for just $7.99, or you can get both DLC packs for $11.99 in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. See details on the Mario Kart 8 DLC website: http://mariokart8.nintendo.com/dlc/#dlc-ac
- Mewtwo DLC for Super Smash Bros. (available April 28): Mewtwo will soon be available to everyone. Players can buy the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS DLC for $3.99, or get Mewtwo for both games for just $4.99. Here’s the Super Smash Bros. DLC website: http://www.smashbros.com/us/dlc/index.html
- amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits (confirmed for April 30): Download the game from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, then tap any amiibo to your Wii U GamePad. You’ll unlock a random playable three-minute scene from a classic NES or Super NES game. It’s a cool way to extend the playability of amiibo.
