Nintendo has revealed a new vehicle for Mario Kart 8’s first DLC pack, which is due for release next month. Joining previously announced vehicles such as the Blue Falcon and the B Dasher, the Master Cycle will give bike-users a much-needed boost on the track.
Mario Kart 8 fans can purchase the first DLC pack via the Nintendo eShop or the Nintendo Online Store. Due in November, the Zelda x Mario Kart 8 pack will contain two new cups with 8 new courses, three characters including Link, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach, as well as four new vehicles. Check out Link on the new Master Cycle above, along with a new image of Animal Crossing’s Isabelle and villager in their chosen karts.
Looks great! First!
Link actually looks like he fits in MK8 with that bike. I really want the DLC now. XD
Link and that bike will be all you see in mk 8 once the dlc is out. They should have made it like sonic wiiu racing. only one of each character can be in a specific race at any given time. Nintendo is known for their lack of imagination when it comes to online stuff but this is an obvious one.
That would be the shittiest thing they could do. I hated that in Sonic allstars. Also the forced 30sec delay between races, wtf!?
You couldn’t be any more wrong. Are you one of those elite trolls I’ve heard wispers about? Noob.
This killed my boner. If there was an Xbox bike, I would get horny again.
Here is your brand new bike…
It explodes! Just how I like it! :D
*flips the bird* Fuck off Sasori. Xbox DOne sales in Japan is as limp as your dick I bet.
That is actually true.
Thanks for the confession. Now fuck off.
Stop feeding the troll!
And stop feeding me because IDGAF. XD
So you don’t care if I wave this steaming hot, delicious chicken leg right over your nose? Lol.
Where are you getting at you freak? XD
You know you can’t resist fried chicken. XD
And I know you can’t resist buying Ubishit garbage. XP
I have never bought a Ubisoft game before yet. I didn’t buy Assassin’s Creed 3. Haha, nice fail. XD But I do plan on getting the next two AC games because… I don’t even need to explain. Lol you know me already.
Exactly. I do know you and haven’t failed on exposing your hypocrisy. Didn’t buy any Ubi games my ass. XD
This is why I wanted to smack you for your comment about how you don’t want a Bayonetta 3 because the first two look so similar to each other as I can say the same about every single Assassin’s Creed game. *pats* I pity you, Hollow…
The legend of zelda: spirit of the engine confirmd :p
Hero of the bikes
THIS is the real Zelda Spirit Tracks. :D
Ocarina of Time Trials. ;)
so I guess the people who wanted Epona should be happy
haha awesome, amazing design, great illustration style ^-^
Wow! That’s amazing! Only one more vehicle left,and I bet we’ll see it next month.
a must get indeed
hey, guys. you must know obinna is a cross-gender now and says his name is AFRO-dite.
lotsa love to my babe hollowgrapej :*
I hope this is an inside drifting bike. That would make this my default kart.
That depends on what wheel you attach to it. Some wheels have different drifting performance.
It’s no Epona, but at least Link won’t seem out of place in Mario Kart 8, when he’s throwing Bom-omb’s off of that SWEET ride.
i want an epona bike in the future…
What a MASTERFUL design!!!
Plenty of horsepower huh?… I see what you did there…
Almost as ugly as the creepy yoshi cycle….
Really? I think it looks fucking SWEET!
“Almost as ugly as the creeper (me) sleeping with my mom”
Fixed it for you and you’re welcome. lol
I like the Yoshi-cycle. It’s my go to ride! I like to ride it with a Yoshi…
Is that weird?
I guess you could say that Link will be the winner *puts on sunglasses* of the Master Race! *crickets* hugs?
Whew, and I was afraid he’d get a motorbike designed after Epona… vehicles that look like people and animals give me the skin creeps.
The bike is shaped like a horse.
Sweet ass! :3 Gimme that DLC NOW!
Link looks amazing on that bike
I want to play as Isabelle way more than anyone else. Link is cool but… the cuteness overload of Isabelle though… XD
Don’t you think toon link would have fit a bit better? Still looks awesome though.
No, because this Link is what the “real” Link looks like. Toon Link is an alternative art style. I could see them adding both Toon Link and normal looking Link, but it wouldn’t be right to have JUST Toon Link.
That would be like having Baby Mario instead of Mario. You can have just Mario or both of the Marios, but not JUST Baby Mario.
What pink said.
It should have been toon link all the way. With a Red Dragon Kart!
But this look good too. Although very strang seeing adult link on a motorcycle. I seriously don’t think I could ever get used to seeing that.
Toon link would have fit in better with Mario Kart, you are absolutely right
True, but they probably wanted this version of Link since he’s closer in style to the one in the new Zelda game for Wii U.
Possible… but then they have both in Smash… DLC opens up a lot of possibilities. So any character is fair game… and the more the better, especially since they put helmets on the Mii’s which isn’t very much fun
Speaking of, I wish some new information about new Zelda would sprout. Honestly at the moment, thats the only real reason I want the Wii U.
I’m afraid we wont hear much on the new Zelda until E3 2015. And HOPEFULLY it will release mid November, just like every other holiday first party game. First year it was Mario 3d World, then Smash, next Zelda…… And after that in year four we’ll have Metroid, then year five Mario Galaxy 3, and the final year six will be a new I.P.
Too long. Way too long.
Actually it is Skyward Sword Link.
should’ve made an epona bike! but this is cool too.
wait a minute did anyone see that this was announced by nintendo Uk. I’m not buying into this until I hear it from someone other than them!
SteamWorld Legend of Zelda confirmed
Awww, does that mean we won’t be seeing an anti-gravity Epona?
“Real horse power” Epona confirmed
In German this Bike is called “Eponator”.
So yes, Epona confirmed for real. =P
Link stole that bike from a Zelda 2 boss. Seen here: http://www.nesmaps.com/maps/Zelda2/images/21Level03boss.png
Wait……people still play this game? I stopped months ago. Lost interest.
You never truly stop playing Mario Kart. But if you do, that’s what the new DLC is for. To bring back your interest. The promise of 16 new tracks is hard to resist.
Don’t even bother trying. He hates DLC and anything digital related, so just let him miss out.
Thank you, HollowGrapeJ. You know me very well.
Besides, I don’t consider myself “missing out”. I got tired of this game even before I got the gold trophy on every mirror mode course. First time that ever happened.
I got bored too, but the DLC makes it worth it. You can’t avoid DLC forever. It is inevitable that Nintendo is going to put it into a game that you really like.
