Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class kart is heading to Mario Kart 8 in the west


The official Nintendo of America Twitter account has announced that the GLA-Class kart from Mercedes-Benz is heading to western copies of Mario Kart 8.

Mario Kart 8 owners in Japan were already treated to this unusual bit of DLC, so it’s nice to see the same thing heading our way. Of course, this makes us all hope that more extensive DLC is on the way for Mario Kart 8. What else would you like to see?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth


  1. I want to see new/returning characters. I especially want King Boo to return. He’s more relevant now than he was for MKWii.

    BUT I think DLC might come in the form of Amiibo. I honestly can’t think of what other reason MK8 would even have Amiibo in the first place, and we know they said they plan on doing it for MK8 at E3.

  2. Yeah, it’s been said a thousand times, but there are way too many baby characters in this game. More variety is much needed.

  3. I hope this is just the start, I really want to see additional tracks as DLC, even if it’s just tracks that were previously used at retro courses in other MK games.

  4. I agree with the above ideas of past tracks and characters. However if they are going to do this kind of cross-branding, I think a 50th anniversary Mustang is in order!

  5. I wouldn’t say no to that myself!
