Seems like quite an unusual piece of DLC, and I can't help but think this won't be a popular download unless it's free. Hopefully it's a precursor to more substantial add-ons.

Yeah, it's free. I'll get it solely for that reason, if/as/when I next frequent the store and it's there. It certainly wont be a rush to download the moment it's released.

Should add it there the Bugatti Veyron now that would be fun with terrible handling but fantastic top speed

That's really nice of Nintendo. I wasn't fancying buying that off of eShop, have to admit. It's so much nicer when companies fork out DLC for free, a la BandaiNamco. Makes having bought a game an altogether more pleasant experience. Wish Tecmo could alter its DLC policy or just cease-to-trade; one of the two of those outcomes, is bound to materialize soon enough, I am quite sure!

Good to see that MK8 is getting DLC but it's a shame it's not a better car. I've still hardly played on MK8, kept forgetting I've got it to be honest.

This nice to see for free dlc and mercedes benz is going to be amazing to drive in mk8 tracks.

Definitely an unusual addition for a Mario Kart game! Sponsor plugging is the first thing that comes to mind. Will definitely feel odd seeing that kind of car in a Mario Kart game!

Not too bothered about this DLC, but I hope this leads to more add-ons like characters and retro tracks.
