This is such a strange move by Nintendo.
- They’re including real vehicles as selectable karts in a primarily wacky kart racer
- It’s DLC which is uncommon for Nintendo
- It’s coming out for free which is uncommon in general
- It’s coming alongside a patch to fix up some issues which is uncommon for Nintendo
What a weird thing this is. I’m enjoying what I’ve played of Mario Kart 8 so far, so I’m looking forward to the additional content and improvements coming later this month.
I shouldn’t be weirded out by this but since Nintendo have been doing things their own way for some time now, seeing them follow their peers is unusual for them.
