Mario Kart 8 update brings three new cars

Das Beste oder Nichts

August 27th will bring with it a new update to Mario Kart 8. The download is set to include a number of new features and three Mercedes cars to choose from:

  • Mercedes-Benz GLA
  • 300 SL Roadster (1950s era)
  • Silver Arrow (1930s era)

To go along with this, Nintendo are also organizing a global tournament called the "Mercedes Cup".

As for tweaks to the nuts and bolts of the game, here's a list:

  • Drivers will now have the option to display the course map on the TV screen during races.
  • The order of the menu after each race will be changed to "Next Race", followed by "Watch Highlight Reel".
  • The game will remember the most recent kart options that were selected, even if the Wii U system was powered down.
  • Users will be able to change options of other players' Mario Kart TV downloaded highlight reels, such as changing the focus to different characters or actions.
  • A score screen will be added so players can see how many coins they've collected, the win-loss record of their online battles and their frequently used characters.
  • Improved the stability of the online connection to enhance user experience during online battles.
