Mario Kart 8, the latest entry of the series developed by Nintendo now available on Wii U in all regions, has been released last year and has managed to become one of the more successful Wii U releases in a very short amount of time thanks to an excellent gameplay experience.

With Nintendo starting to look at the possibilities offered by DLC packs a few years ago, it was a given that Mario Kart 8 would receive more content after release. The Japanese company has released the first DLC pack for the game a few months back which expanded the game with new excellent tracks, new characters and new vehicles. Today, the second DLC pack is finally available for purchase and download in all regions.

The second Mario Kart 8 DLC pack includes three new characters, the Villager and Isabelle from the Animal Crossing series, and the scary Dry Bowser, four new vehicles, the Bone Rattler, the City Tripper, the P-Wing and the Streetle, and eight new tracks divided into two new cups, one featuring all new tracks and one tracks taken from past entries of the series. The more notable ones among the new tracks are the Animal Crossing track which changes season each time it’s played and the Big Blue track , another F-Zero series track re-imagined for Mario Kart 8.

Even if you have no intention of purchasing the new Mario Kart 8 DLC pack, you will still receive some new content today. A new update has been released alongside the game, featuring a new really fast and challenging 200cc class. The update also adds support for other amiibo figures, allowing players to unlock special suits inspired by Wario, Bowser, Pac-Man, Sonic, Mega Man and others.

The second Mario Kart 8 DLC pack is now available for purchase for $7. It’s also possible to purchase the pack bundled with the first one for only $11.99. With the Mario Kart 8 DLC packs, Nintendo has proven that they can do DLC the right way. Let’s hope they sell well enough so that the Japanese company can continue offering extra content for really good prices for its future games.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
