Mario Kart 8 just got better!

There are three new indie games, a classic Mario Kart title has made its way to the Virtual Console, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric has arrived, and LEGO Batman 2 is now available on Nintendo's digital store. There are also some discounts worth noting, but the biggest news is undoubtedly the new Mario Kart 8 DLC.
