Big news for Mario Kart 8 today in the form of new downloadable content. I've known since the release of Mario Kart 8 that players were due to receive a Mercedes-Benz styled kart but I didn't expect to see three at once. Best of all...the new karts are free to download!
First up is the 'GLA', which I think looks very cool. Unfortunately it's not very quick on the track but offers a lot of grip should you venture of the course.
Next is the W25 Silver Arrow, which looks more at home on the Mario Kart circuit.
The last (and my personal favourite!) is the 300 SL Roadster. This kart to me looks amazing and drives really well on the track.
Even better news is that Nintendo plan on releasing more downloadable content for Mario Kart 8, however, we'll have to pay to receive these. So far Nintendo have confirmed that the downloadable content will be split into two packs, which are detailed below:
I can't wait to see what the 'Zelda Course' will look like! Starting today you'll be able to advance purchase Pack 1 or Pack 2 singularly for £7.00. Alternatively, you advance purchase both for the grand total of £11.00. Unfortunately, Pack 1 will be available in November 2014, whilst Pack 2 will be available in May 2015. To sweeten the deal Nintendo are offering 8 different coloured Yoshis and Shy Guys characters to download, that can be used immediately for the game.
