Nintendo of Japan has announced via their Twitter that free DLC for a Mercedes Benz kart will soon become available for download in Mario Kart 8. This is only for Japan, nothing has been announced for the west yet.
It's nice to see some DLC heading towards this game, hopefully we'll see more in the future with additional characters. Since the game still needs characters such as Diddy Kong, Dry Bones, King Boo, Bowser Jr., E. Gadd, etc...

Bob Hoskins, best known for his role in the movie, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", has passed away at age 71 after being hospitalized for pneumonia.
Hoskins had a number of roles both on the big and small screens, among those roles he was cast as none other than Mario in the infamous "Super Mario Bros. The Movie", alongside of John Leguizamo's Luigi. However, despite playing a role as iconic as Mario, Bob Hoskins considered Super Mario Bros. The Movie to be the worst film that he had ever been apart of.
He later retired from acting in 2012 following a Parkinson's disease diagnosis after his role as one of the seven dwarves in the "Snow White and the Huntsman".
