MARIO KART 8 DLC for ZELDA and ANIMAL CROSSING
Each Add On Content pack will contain two new cups, each with four courses, which, in total, increases the number of available courses by 50 percent. The Add On Content packs include classics like Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, as well as new courses, some taking place in the worlds of The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. New vehicles will also arrive with each pack, including the Blue Falcon kart representing the F-Zero franchise in the first AOC pack.

I want to point out that this pretty much confirms that Smash 4 is going to have DLC. Them putting out DLC for Mario Kart means that they’re probably willing to or have plans to make DLC for other games as well, especially if this does well. And Smash Bros is a prime candidate for additional content with the way its structured, so it would stand to reason that those Smash Bros DLC rumors are probably more than rumors at this point.
