Mario Kart 8 Is Getting Breath of the Wild’s Link and His Motorcycle

In a batch of DLC for Breath of the Wild, Link hit full mid-life crisis and got a motorcycle. Now, Link and his hog are where they really belong: in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The new DLC update to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch is free and available right now. The update is small, but it’s worth it. You can now pick Link from Breath of the Wild as a playable character, as well as the Master Cycle Zero that was added to the Zelda game in a recent update. You’ll also find Ancient Tires and a new glider, to complete that BotW look.

In case you’re curious about the stats you’ll get with this new bike, here they are.

It’s not a bad addition to a game that’s already solid on the Switch. If you haven’t picked it up in a little while, this might be as good a reason as any to pick it up over the weekend and go a few more times around the track.
