Mario Kart 8 will have a load of new content soon, with the 200cc racing class arriving as a free update for all players. We've already seen footage showing just how much it'll shake up the way we race, with the speed on offer seemingly more that the 50cc boost suggested by the name.

Comparisons with 150cc laps are certainly nice to see, and Nintendo UK has been producing some handy videos to give us a sense of the extra speed. Another fresh video shows off the Piranha Plant Pipeway track, with the new speed class zipping around for an impressive time. As we've seen previously fresh shortcuts can be opened up in 200cc, and in this case the kart's glider has a whole lot of extra lift.

Check it out below and let us know whether you're looking forward to this update on 23rd April.
