Easily one of the funnest things to come out of the latest Nintendo Direct was the announcement that Mario Kart 8 was getting a free update, and update featuring a brand new race class: 200cc. This class was meant to be the pinnacle of racing, as it would feature blistering speeds, and a need to be truly in tune with not just the track, but your racer and cart.
That really left a question though, just how fast is it? Not just on speed alone, but compared to the other race classes? Well, Nintendo recently released a side by side comparison of Mario Kart 8 in both 150cc and 200cc mode. Here’s the video.
The level you’re seeing is Dolphin Shoals, and you can tell that this race class is incredibly fast, and furious, and awesome.
It truly will take a master racer to win all of these courses, are you up to the challenge? The free update will arrive on April 23rd. But that’s not all, that is the date when the second batch of DLC for Mario Kart 8 will arrive. It will feature the additions of the Villager characters and Isabelle from Animal Crossing, Dry Bowser, plenty of new outfits, and 8 new races courses from two different race cups.
