Zelda’s Link joins Mario Kart 8 Update (DLC)

Today the newest in DLC for Mario Kart 8 has been released – or leaked, is more like it – complete with your very own Link from Zelda. Finally, at long last, Zelda characters will join the fold. Link rolls with a swift red motorcycle and a Triforce kart as well!

In addition to Link, you’ll find Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach joining the crew. Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 will be released in November of 2014 while Mario Kart 8 Pack 2 will arrive in May of 2015. In the 2nd pack you’ll find a Villager, Isabelle, and “Dry Bowser.”


Mario Kart 8 Pack 1
Released: November 2014
3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
4 Vehicles
8 Courses


Mario Kart 8 Pack 2
Released: May 2015
3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
4 Vehicles
8 Courses

If you want to purchase both packs at once in advance, you’ll get the coveted eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys “that can be used right away.” Super kawaii and adorable all day long!

UPDATE: it would seem that you get this reward if you buy both packs no matter what – doesn’t matter if you buy them both at once.

UPDATE 2: The link has been pulled! Stay tuned!
