MARIO KART 8 Update Information Here!


Attention all Mario Kart lovers, the first US update for Mario Kart 8 is coming soon! Come August 27, 2014, that could be you pulling the Luigi death stare while balling out of control in a classic Mercedes-Benz’s. Take that Mario!


Although Nintendo’s game patches tended to focus more on bug fixes and glitches, there will be a couple of noticeable changes this time around. Don’t worry, nothing extreme. The new Mario Kart patch will now be collecting your online race stats and add more options to download highlight videos from Mario Kart TV. Smaller tweaks will be included as with every patch (bug fixes), but nothing to noticeable.


Once you download the patch, you will be able to participate in the “Mercedes Cup” tournament. The tournament will run until the 23rd of September. Not much information has been released other than that.


But wait. The best part about the patch has yet to come! If you are still waiting for the price of the Mercedes cars, then boy do I have good news for you. They will be free!!! Thank you Nintendo for giving us our fix. Now if only you can do something to fix the battle mode…


Here’s a commercial from NintendoWiiUK!
