Breath of the Wild Link drives into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe


 

Last week, we got a hint that Nintendo wasn’t quite done adding more content to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and this week, the game has gotten a surprising new crossover update.

Thanks to a free update, players can now race onto each course with a revamped version of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You’ll now be able to dress Link in the blue Champion’s Tunic and let him drive his own custom kart.

This new vehicle is the Master Cycle Zero, the motorcycle-ish vehicle from Breath of the Wild‘s DLC. It comes with other accessories that can be mixed and matched with other karts in the game, each Breath of the Wild themed. Ancient Tires that match the Master Cycle and Link’s Paraglider can be added on to any other kart in the game.

A short clip from Nintendo shows how the Master Cycle Zero drives.

Link already appears in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, since the original Wii U version of the game had a Hylian-themed DLC complete with the Triforce Cup, Hyrule Circuit, and a Zelda-themed kart. This new addition, however, is the first time players have been able to customize Link to resemble Breath of the Wild Link, and it’s the first time items and accessories from that game have made an appearance, since Breath of the Wild wasn’t yet out when the original Mario Kart 8 launched.

There may be more updates to look forward to in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe‘s future. When Takahashi first promised that more content was coming, he used the word “updates,” plural, so we may yet see more added to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The update is free and available now.
