Next month, Nintendo will release Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, an enhanced port of Mario Kart 8 with new characters, stages, and gameplay modes, on Nintendo Switch. In the first trailer, we learned of five new characters that will be added to the game: Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, and King Boo. A few days ago, Nintendo UK published a new overview trailer for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, in which the company showed off another new racer, Gold Mario.

You can watch the trailer above if you want to see Gold Mario for yourself!

The news of Gold Mario coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has upset many fans, who claim that adding another Mario clone to the character roster is totally unnecessary. Mario Kart 8 already featured regular Mario and Metal Mario, so the addition of Gold Mario seems rather redundant.

What do you think? Did you like Metal Mario in the original Mario Kart 8, and do you ever see yourself using Gold Mario? Are you upset that Nintendo is adding another metal Mario to the roster? Let us know in the comments below!
