As part of a collaboration with car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz, Mario Kart 8 was getting some DLC in Japan that added the company\’s new 2015 GLA-class vehicle for fans to choose before the race. Now, the same DLC is coming to North America and in Europe this summer, presumably alongside the Japan release. Both the Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe Twitter feeds released the news a short while ago.

We’re planning to release a GLA-Class kart from @Mercedesbenz for #MK8 this summer. Stay tuned for more info!

The DLC is free in Japan and while not specified, you would expect it to be free in each of the other regions it will release too. In case you missed the rather awesome trailer that accompanied the Japan announcement last month, then be sure to check it out below.
