People have been asking for it since Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was released on the Nintendo Switch, and now players have it as a new free DLC. Last night, Nintendo officially added a new cycle and character from The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, specifically the Master Cycle Zero and Link wearing his Champion’s Tunic. The company tweeted out a trailer to show off the look as he races around the track.

We reported last week that there was more unexpected content coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but what exactly we’d be seeing was unclear. If it’s more versions of racers that are already in the game, that’s nice, but kind of weird considering we haven’t seen much added since the game was released. We would prefer to see new tracks and modes added since the roster is already stacked (unless they wanna toss some Super Smash Bros. people in the mix for once, like Captain Falcon, Metroid, and Pit.)
