With the maintenance being done, this means you won’t be able to access the online features for Mario Kart 8 on the times provided above. You can still however play the game’s offline modes without any hassle.

Mario Kart 8 is set to receive a new update that will add 200cc karts into the game. 200cc means the the karts will go faster than ever before. It will make the game more difficult, yet might be a fun ride for veterans.

Alongside the Mario Kart 8 update, new DLC is set to land for the game too. This second DLC pack for the game includes Villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowser. There will also be for new vehicles for you to try out and two new cups as well.

Hopefully the update and DLC for Mario Kart 8 launches smoothly so everyone can start racing online ASAP.
