Mario Kart 8 DLC Confirmed, Mercedes-Benz Kart Coming to Japan

Fans can rest assured that Mario Kart 8 will indeed feature some kind of DLC. Nintendo has announced that Japan will get a free Mercedes-Benz kart during the summer to cross promote both products. The free download is set to release in other regions as well, but details are not being shared at the moment.

Be sure to check out the commercial for the car itself as well!

    Introducing… THE MERCEDES BENZ 2.0!
    As you can see, there is now no roof, and it is considerably smaller. It can hit shiny boxes and make mushrooms and shells appear out of nowhere. It can even flash rainbow colors sometimes!

    And best of all, for every coin you accidently run over with your car, you can make your car go slightly faster! Get 10 coins, and you may possibly have the fastest car on earth!

      …SCREW EVERYTHING IVE BEEN HOLDING IN MY HYPE FOR TOO LONG! MARIO KART 8 HERE I COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SmashBrosChamp

    I like this kart now my mii can drive in style while racing

  • BlooperLover

    Oh my

  • Sea Slug and Wagashi

    While I think that a car with a little more colour would of been much more appropriate, I’m happy that Nintendo doesn’t think that MK8 DLC is completely out of the picture.

  • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

    well now that dlc is finally confirmed, here are my ideas. There will be 4 packs. The first one to release will be the customization pack. this pack will bring a ton of extra vehicle parts to add to your collection. The second pack will be the character pack 1. This will add 6 new characters to the game (Birdo, Diddy, Bowsr Jr., King Boo, Dry Bones, and Kamek). The third pack will be the Battle Course pack. This pack will add 6 new and 6 returning battle courses to battle mode so it will feel original. The 4th pack will be character pack 2 this will add another six characters to your collection (Dixie, Honey Queen, Wiggler, Petey Piranha, Dry Bowser, and Fubky Kong.) There probably won’t be any dlc courses and here’s why: In every Mario Kart, rainbow road was always the last course of the nitro courses. if they added two new cup for each set of courses (nitro and retro) it would ruin the idea of the rainbow road being last. I also think that there will be no dlc retro course due to the fact that some of them (especially n64 wario stadium) will be needed to be used for later mario kart games. All in all though, these packs would mario kart 8 feel complete

      I think it would be even more complete if instead of this Mercedes kart, they had the Mercedes-McLaren SLR kart.

      • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

        oh my god! ur back!

    • Bowser498

      Nice! The only improvement are the new dlc courses. If they do have dlc, then they would have to put in courses with characters. (What I am saying is with each pack, there should be a mix of things, except for the Customization Pack) I like both the ideas and the new characters for DLC. 🙂

    A real-life car in Mario Kart just… Doesn’t look right under any circumstances. But you know, it’s free, so it can’t hurt.

    • Person McPerson

      look at my previous comments. i said that already

      • GameGuy5

        Awwww, that’s a darn shame. Well, it looks like I have to delete my comment now because you said something SIMILAR. Oh, the humanity.

  • SonicShadow

    HAHAHAHAHHA!

  • King of Red Gorillas

    That mario….NEEDS to be dlc

    • Mr. Sushi

      You’ve unlocked Badass Mario!

  • KinopioToad

    I like it! But, like GameGuy5 said, it looks almost out of place. If they make a Lamborghini kart, sign me up!

    • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

      where have you been? its been a while

      • KinopioToad

        …in the shadows…

        • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

          lol

  • Bowser498

    These are my DLC ideas, even though it got confirmed…
    Red Shell Pack: Comes with four new courses, and two new playable characters: Paratroopa and Petey Piranha.
    Ice Flower Pack: Comes with eight battle courses (four new, four returning), and two new playable characters: Nabbit and Birdo.
    Golden Mushroom Pack: Comes with four new courses, and two new playable characters: Bowser Jr. and Dry Bowser.
    Donkey Kong Pack: Comes with four new Donkey-Kong themed courses, and comes with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, and Funky Kong.
    Bad Enemies Pack: Comes with four new Enemy-Related courses, and comes with Goomba, Hammer Bro, Fire Bro, and Boomerang Bro.
    Good Sidekicks Pack: Comes with four new courses dedicated to Mario’s sidekicks (ex) Yoshi, Toad), and comes with Toadsworth and (Red), (Green), Blue, and Yellow Toads and Yoshis.
    Grand Prix Pass: This pack comes with the five course packs, plus Gold Mario as a playable character.
    *Each pack costs $1.99, and the Grand Prix Pass is $9.99.
    *With Gold Mario, for every lap you finish, you earn three coins for both the race and your total coin count.
    *For every pack you purchase (Except the Grand Prix Pass, unless that covers all five packs), you get a kart, bike, and glider piece.
    Hope you enjoyed my DLC thoughts! 🙂

      • Bowser498

        Interesting! I forgot to put Wario Colosseum in there; I’ll replace it for Maka Wuhu. 😛

        • Luigiguy567

          Thanks 😀

          • Bowser498

            You are welcome. 🙂

      • Bowser498

        I hope the Mercedes Kart comes to the US… :/

    • Braystar

      Not bad! (but could be better… NO GOOMBA)

      • Bowser498

        lol… I don’t know what to do with characters. Since Goomba is in the crowd/stands, I’m not so sure… If he can hold a bat in Mario Baseball (despite that he had no hands), then he could drive a kart in Mario Kart. I put in Goomba because koopa/paratroopa was in Double Dash. so I thought that Goomba would be a nice edition. What are your thoughts about DLC? (Same format as mine and Luigiguy567’s) 😛

        • Braystar

          … I can’t be bothered… 😛

          • Bowser498

            Bummer… 🙁
