Next month, Nintendo is due to release new downloadable content for Mario Kart 8 featuring the main protagonist of the Zelda series, Link! You’ll be able to play as Link driving the ‘Master Cycle’, a motorbike designed in the style of the Master Sword. No gameplay footage of Link exists yet, but a piece of official artwork has been released showing Link and his vehicle drawn in the style of Skyward Sword. As you can see below, a Hylian Shield is attached to the bike, and its wheels have triforce symbols painted on.
The DLC also features two new characters aside from Link, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach. There are also three new vehicles aside from the Master Cycle: the Blue Falcon from the F-Zero series, the B Dasher (a vehicle that has appeared in past Mario Kart games), and the Tanooki Buggy, a jeep coloured to look like a Tanooki tail.
