[Update: Nintendo of America has released more details, mainly that both downloadable content packs will cost $7.99 each, or $11.99 if you buy both together. Also the DLC is coming out at absurd times. The first one will be out in November, and the second won't arrive until May 2015. What the hell.] 

Whoa! The official Nintendo UK Store website has a listing for upcoming Mario Kart 8 DLC that will add characters and courses from other Nintendo properties, including The Legend of Zelda's Link, Animal Crossing's Villager, and a kart based on F-Zero's Blue Falcon.

The first pack releases in November and includes Link, Cat Peach, Tanooki Mario, four vehicles, and eight courses. Then, in May, the second add-on introduces Villager, Dry Bowser, Isabelle, four more vehicles, and eight new courses. The DLC packs are priced at £7.00 each.

"As a bonus for purchasing both packs -- as a bundle or separately -- you can get eight different-colored Yoshis and eight different-colored Shy Guys that can be used right away."

It's about time this happened. I'll be dying to boot up Mario Kart 8 again come November.

The Pokémon Company just announced Pokkén Tournament, a fighting game developed by Bandai Namco and the Tekken team.

The announcement came via livestream, with The Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara and Namco's Katsuhiro Harada revealing the title is coming first to Japanese arcades sometime next year.

This must be the "shocking" new Pokémon announcement (hinted at last year).

Did You Know Gaming chronicles NES Super Mario secrets

Alright, how much of this Did You Know did you know? How much will you remember when, finally, it's your time to shine at pub trivia, your compatriots waiting for you to swoop in and save the eventing? The mushroom sound effect similarity to the flagpole sound effect? Pretty cool. And that recycled Ocarina of Time theme? I love stories behind iconic sounds.
