Now Playing: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Gets Free Breath Of The Wild DLC, Hot Wheels On The Way - GS News Update

Nintendo and Mattel teamed up to create Mario Kart Hot Wheels. The toys debuted at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 and will be available in stores in Summer 2019. There are eight toys planned so far, with no word if more are planned for further down the line.

For now, you can look forward to racing down your favorite Hot Wheels track with Mario, Bowser, Peach, Luigi, Toad, Yoshi, Wario, and Rosalina. Hot Wheels is planning on releasing some Mario Kart-inspired tracks for people to race on as well.

No Caption Provided

Each toy will be sold separately for $5. There's been no word on whether you'll be able to buy the karts in bulk, nor how much the Mario Kart-inspired tracks will cost.

For those who prefer to keep their racing purely in the virtual world and out of the physical, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has some new updates on the way. Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo's head of software development, confirmed new patches are on their way, although Nintendo has yet to reveal what exactly will be added and when that might be. Some Mario Kart fans were disappointed a Double Dash mode wasn't included in Deluxe, so maybe we can look forward to that. [Update: Perhaps that is still on the way, but for now a new Mario Kart 8 update has added Zelda: Breath of the Wild-themed content for free.]

Despite its comic book roots, Comic-Con has expanded to cover a lot more aspects of nerd and geek culture, including movies, anime, video games, and toys. We've already seen some huge fights that will be featured in the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, a new story trailer for PS4's Spider-Man, and a surprise announcement and trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7.
