Breath of the Wild Link joins the Mario Kart 8 roster in free update

Born to be (breath of the) wild.

The latest update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has arrived on Nintendo Switch, and it's brought a special guest to the party. Look!

That's BotW Link taking to the track on his Master Cycle Zero, from the Champion's Ballad DLC for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Fashion watchers will want to know that he's also wearing his Champion's Tunic, and the update also adds the Zelda-fied Ancient Tires to the game's upgrades, as well as a Zelda paraglider.

The update is out now, and completely free, so if you own Mario Kart 8 Deluxes (and if not, why not?) just fire up the Switch and get downloading!

Dan has been playing games since the 1980s, and doesn't plan on stopping any time soon. Also, get off his lawn. You can contact him by email if you need to know exactly how to leave his lawn.
