It's a story that does exactly what it says on the tin. Nintendo is teaming up with Mercedes-Benz to give Mario and chums shiny new GLA to bomb around the tracks in. Needless to say, that go kart made of warp pipes is beginning to look a bit silly now. Check out the insane trailer below...
UPDATE: Mario Kart 8's Mercedes-Benz DLC is now officially coming to Europe and North America! More like Mercedes WHENZ it coming out... Right? Summer. It is coming out in summer.
Well, er, that was something else. What do you make of that readers? Is this Mario's first step towards being a more serious Forza-type sim? And do you want to see the DLC land on our shores?
