If you couldn't get enough of Mario and the Mercedes GLA, prepare for an extra helping as the company plans to add three models to Mario Kart 8.

Starting on August 27th, Mario Kart 8 owners will be able to download an update which will add the W 25 Silver Arrow, 300 SL Roadster and GLA-Class to the game. There will also be a "Mercedes Cup" which is billed as a "worldwide online tournament in which Mario Kart 8 players can test their skills against each other."

According to Mercedes Head of Marketing Dr. Jens Thiemer, "Video and computer games are widespread throughout the world, and have a large fan community. With our presence in blockbuster games such as Mario Kart 8 we approach to modern focus groups and are achieving excellent results in making our brand more youthful." Thiemer went on to say "We are particularly proud of the fact that we are the first automobile brand to be represented with real vehicles in Mario Kart 8."
