The free Mercedes-Benz DLC that was promised for Mario Kart 8 owners in the west finally has a solid release date: August 27. Nintendo announced this today and even included a trailer to go alongside it. And there isn’t just one new kart, but three headed our way. The first is the 2014 GLA, “the compact SUV of Mercedes-Benz”; the second is the 1934 W 25 Silver Arrow, “the legendary formula racing car”; and the third is the 1957 300 SL Roadster, “the dream sports car.” Even more good news: the new karts will come with a variety of paint jobs. See them in action for yourself in the trailer above.
In addition to the Mercedes-Benz DLC, an update for Mario Kart 8 (also coming on the 27th) will give players the option to display a course map on the TV screen while they race.
