We already know the masterpiece Mario Kart 8 turned out to be – no ifs, ands, or buts. With that in mind, would it be possible to make this game more epic? The answer is yes. Yes, it can.
The world famous car brand Mercedes Benz has found a place in the tracks of the Mushroom Kingdom! New downloadable content (DLC) reportedly available on August 27,2014 for MK8 will let racers drive up to 3 different versions of the Mercedes Benz. These are:
Here’s a little trailer for your viewing pleasure.
Though I am welcoming these additions with open arms, many are not. In fact, a nice chunk of Nintendo fans are outraged. Main concern: accusing Nintendo of being a sell out. However, let’s be real here. Nintendo is a tremendously well established brand – one of the titans in gaming. I’m certain Nintendo’s current chief staff is not planning to jeopardize what the name Mario alone encompasses. The last thing in their minds is to let MK8 be polluted with third party content and destroy such work of art. I see it as a fun way to incorporate a little bit of reality into the fantasy. I’m certain Mercedes begged to be in such an epic game.
In the end, it’s just DCL – meaning you don’t need to download it if you don’t want to. That last one is for those who are having a fit over nothing. If I do say so myself, I can’t WAIT to get my hands on that Dream Car!
So, what do YOU think? Bad move on Nintendo’s behalf? You think it’s rather rad? Or you simply don’t care? Let me know on the comments below!
See you around!
