Mario Kart 8’s new 200cc compared to now insanely pedestrian 150cc

I’m afraid of 200cc. Partially because it looks insanely fast, but also because I think it’s going to make every other racing class in Mario Kart practically unplayable.

Nintendo of UK released a clip comparing 150cc, the previously fastest class in the series, to the upcoming 200cc over one lap of Dolphin Shoals. Well, one lap for 150cc. 200cc makes it roughly halfway through the second lap while the 150cc is approaching the finish line for the first time.

Yep. It’s super fast. Here’s a look at Grumble Volcano in time trial mode with 200cc on. I have a feeling this new speed is going to open up some unforeseen shortcuts on plenty of tracks in Mario Kart 8.

200cc will come to Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U as a free update. The next DLC pack will launch on April 23, and that’s the same day for this free speed update.

Things are going to get nuts.
