Oh, wow. So I guess it will be available to use online after this? I hope so.

I know product placement is usually a bad thing, but this is too damn hilarious to hate.

Cool. Hopefully this isn't the only DLC we'll get (but given how well the game's sold I don't doubt that they're making some paid DLC too).

Wonderful. ^^ I do feel there's a lack of parts on this game somehow. I hope more DLC Karts will show up from time to time. ^^ Let's see a bunch of people turn this free DLC to something franchise-destroying.

Also, I really wanna know what the Amiibo will do for Mario Kart. If I put my Samus Amiibo there, will there be a Metroid Course? :3

You betcha, the way Nintendo talks about Mario Kart 8, as an important part of WiiU's lineup makes me believe they have much more DLC planned, tracks, karts and even modes.

I would buy them all, I've never been a fan of Mario Kart but I really like this game, they put a lot of effort on it and they won't let the momentum die so easily.

I figured it was coming, but I'm still kind of irritable that it's... Mercedes-Benz, of all things. To me, it might as well be a boxy 1980s Chrylser. I don't care if it's popular for being expensive, I've just always felt they're really ugly cars that are more expensive than they need to be.

Not saying I don't like it, I just wish it was like.. a Porsche-911, or maybe a 90s Mustang, "General Lee" Charger, actual JEEP brand white "Daisy Duke" Jeep for the 4x4-karts, something that I can slightly more easily relate to. Not expensive-for-sake-of-being-expensive boxy super-rich-class car that I have little interest in except for being different. Oh well. Maybe more could come, but for not hearing of anything other than this, it's not happening fast enough anyway..

I'd be mega surprised if it wasn't.

@MasterofMonster I doubt non-Mario related IPs will work with it, period.

But I am curious as to whether Mario A [Smash Bros branded amiibo, first wave] and Mario B [Mario Party 10, for example, branded amiibo] will do the same thing in Mario Kart 8 etc.

may this be the beginning of a long line of DLC for MK8

@Rex
Kudos. And, indeed, I hope so. ^^ MK8 is wonderful, but as Always, you do get a Little tired of the tracks when you play them over and over. DLC tracks would be wonderful.
As would characters and more parts, of course. And Battle Mode. So many possibilities.

@Chosenone
I doubt so as well, but you never know. ;)

It fits in better that way. It's a silly car.

Alright, well ya got me there... XD As far as having that 'Barbie Power Wheels' look, it does looks funny. I just get caught up in wanting more memorable/easier-to-associate-with brands, but yeah, the initial look is neat.

Wish it could be like a BMW M3, Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ, WRX, Nissan 370Z, or Mustang 2015. Heck, the Mercedes SLR would be fine too. :(

I don't care too much for vehicles in MK8, there is already a shovel ton, I can also do without more characters...

What I want in mk8 DLC is more tracks and LOTS of them. That is what will keep me coming back and playing for hundreds more hours, not aesthetic garbage.

It's so ridiculous that I might just use it.
