Nintendo have revealed what is to be included in their upcoming DLC for Mario Kart 8 later this month, which offers players the chance to race in a choice of three Mercedes-Benz cars.

The DLC is part of a collaboration between Nintendo and Mercedes-Benz to promote the new compact SUV, the GLA. The car itself will be available to use in the game, along with their 1934 W25 Silver Arrow racing car and 1957 300 SL Roadster.

Not only that, but the free DLC also includes a few new features. There is a new stats page that shows you your win-loss record, your total number of coins and your most selected racer. Plus there is the option to display course maps on the TV screen, and you will now be able to save your recent kart settings, so you don’t have to spend time customising before each race. There are also improvements to stability when playing online.

The download will arrive on 27 August along with a worldwide Mercedes Cup tournament that players can take part in (it will be accessible in the online tournament section).
