Link’s Master Cycle races toward Mario Kart 8


Nintendo have revealed the Master Cycle, the vehicle that will accompany Link as a playable character in Mario Kart 8’s first add-on content pack.

The motorbike, inspired by The Legend of Zelda, has a chassis shaped like a steed and Hylian Shields strapped on either side. It joins the B Dasher from Mario Kart DS and the Blue Falcon kart from F-Zero, with Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach also unlocked by purchasing the pack.

The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 add-on content pack will arrive in November, with the second Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 pack releasing in May next year.
