Mario Kart 8 getting Mercedes DLC in North America

After announcing Mercedes-branded Mario Kart 8 DLC for Japan earlier this year, Nintendo of America has tweeted that the GLA-Class Kart will be coming to North America this summer:

This move might bug some Nintendo fans as a Mercedes isn’t exactly an aesthetic match to the cartoon-like Mario Kart 8, though licensing deals like this could certainly help Nintendo’s bottom line.

We’ll see how the DLC kart plays, and whether or not it will be free (if it isn’t, count us out), when it launches this summer. Stay tuned!
