Link Comes With a Sweet Motorcycle in First Mario Kart 8 DLC


Mario Kart 8 Link's Master Cycle

Other Mario Kart 8 DLC vehicles that have been revealed so far, like the Blue Falcon and the B-Dasher, have been exciting, but they’re mostly callbacks to other games. They’ve got nothing on what Nintendo dropped today, a brand new motorcycle for The Legend of Zelda series’ Link.

The Master Cycle looks appropriately Hyrulian and magical, without sacrificing cool. It will be added along with Link in the first Mario Kart 8 DLC. It makes sense that Link, who is used to horseback, would feel a bit more comfortable on a bike than in a kart.

There will be two Mario Kart 8 DLC packs. The first, coming November, adds Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach and Link. The second, coming in May 2015, adds Villager, Isabelle and Dry Bowser. The packs also add new tracks, carts, and some new color schemes for Yoshi and Shyguy that can be obtained before the DLC launches through pre-ordering. The DLC is $7.99 per pack or $11.99 for both.
