Mario Kart 8 gives Link a shiny motorbike

We’ve just been given our first (arty) look at the upcoming batch of DLC for Mario Kart 8. Nintendo has released a concept sketch of Link riding a mechanical horse (okay, it’s a motorbike), which will feature in the game’s upcoming downloadable content.

Labelled the “Master Cycle”, we’re told that this watercolour-inspired chopper has “plenty of horsepower” (geddit?). Link’s trusty transportation features Triforce crests and a Hylian shield, plus that horse’s head over the front wheel…

This is just one of the new vehicles (and new racers!) to feature in the upcoming Mario Kart 8 DLC, which hits Wii U next month. Link will be joined by Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach, able to get behind the wheel of the Blue Falcon from F-Zero.
