Staff Writerexcited about as one of the company’s top-selling brands gained another entry out on shelves yesterday across eastern waters. That’s right – Mario Kart 8 is now out in Japan, and a whole day earlier than it is for everyone else, those lucky ducks! Aside from the general fanfare surrounding such a momentous release for Nintendo’s trademark plumber and his colorful cast of friends and the killer reviews that have come along with it, some rather cheeky downloadable content has just been unveiled for the title as well. It comes in the form of a Mercedes GLA kart currently announced just for Japanese Mario Kart fans, and it’s coming free to them this summer. Sure, it’s effectively nothing but a neat advert for Mercedes down in the Land of the Rising Sun, but how cool and unexpected is it – especially with the crazy trailer provided for its reveal!? “Sexy” Mario makes his debut here, folks. It’s worth taking a look.
