Mario Kart 8’s Mercedes DLC Coming to North America and Europe This Summer

Mario Kart 8 has been a Wii U revelation. It has enjoyed critical and commercial success, and looks to be the game to finally make the Wii U relevant for more gamers. However, one of the game’s most intriguing karts, the downloadable Mercedes Benz GLA, has yet to make its way out of Japan. That’s all set to change this summer though, as Nintendo of America revealed in a tweet today that the DLC would be crossing the ocean this summer, a statement echoed shortly after by Nintendo of Europe. The DLC will likely be free, as it is in Japan, but no official information has been shared as of yet.
