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!

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.

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… Read more »

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

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.

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

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

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) 😛
