Mario Kart 8 comparison footage shows off 200cc speed


Nintendo has demonstrated how fast its Mario Kart 8 200cc mode will be via a new slice of comparison footage.


The gameplay video shows off the Piranha Plant Pipeway track at 200cc and at 150cc, the series' previous fastest speed.

Side by side, the footage shows a lap taking just less than a minute on 150cc, but nearer 40 seconds at 200cc.

Nintendo will add the 200cc mode to Mario Kart 8 via a free update on 23rd April. Extra Amiibo costume support will also be included.

Mario Kart 8's second DLC pack, themed around Animal Crossing, also arrives on the same date. It contains Animal Crossing characters Villager and Isabelle, as well as Dry Bones Bowser and eight more maps.

Take a look at 200cc mode below.
