You Can Download a Mercedes Benz in Mario Kart 8

Mercedes Benz is coming to Mario Kart 8 in Japan. The Mercedes Benz GLA, which a sorta hunky Mario drives in a new Japanese ad, will be available as free DLC.

Info is scant, but Nintendo promises more details. No word yet whether or not the car will be available in the West.

This is the first real car to ever appear in a Mario Kart game. Below, you can see more photos courtesy of Game Watch Impress:

本日発売のWii Uソフト [Nintendo]


    Mario Kart 8 is here to save the Wii U! (comic)

    Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?

      My friends all drive Porches..I must make amends

    What an age we live in. :P

    On one hand it's kind of fun and random
    On the other hand I'm WAY surprised ninty would do this sort of cross advertising.... mega cheap.

    Nintendo must be getting desperate. This sort of product placement is beyond pathetic.
    Losing respect at a rapid rate

      I feel it's not necessary or justified to even complain about something that is free and optional. Sure the Kart looks a little too realistic, but hey, it's free, I'd use it. I think people are blowing this out of proportion just because it's Nintendo.

      "Is Nintendo selling out Mario?" No... Jesus, God forbid they ever do cross-promotions and advertisements like.... companies do all the time. Don't act like they're changing the very fabric of Mario's world and what he's all about. They're doing what all companies do, mutually advertising their product with another company's.

      I say be happy we at least have hope for character, kart, bike, and track DLC in the future. All this other nonsense "Selling out" stuff is redundant and really exposes how ignorant some people are in their mindsets.

    Wonder what the stats of the car are. I can't imagine Mercedes would have let the car be seen as equivalent to a 50cc go-kart.

    Looks fun, can't wait to try it out.
    This also gives me hope for additional more significant DLC.
