Watch Mario Kart 8’s New 200cc Mode Compared to 150cc

Last week, Nintendo revealed that a 200cc mode is coming to its hit racing game, Mario Kart 8. This mode will be released as an entirely free update on April 23rd, alongside the second wave of downloadable content coming the same day. Mario Kart is known for having its racing classes, which comprise both the speed of the vehicles and the difficulty of any computer opponents, to max out at 150cc. With this new class, players will soar at speeds never before witnessed in a Mario Kart game. Suffice to say, 200cc is no joke.

Check out this video comparison by Nintendo España, showing the 150 and 200cc modes side-by-side on the same course.
