Back in August, we reported that Link would be appearing in Mario Kart 8 via a DLC package. Today, The Legend of UK Facebook page revealed official artwork of one set of Link’s new wheels in the game, called the Master Cycle. The Master Cycle (and Link of course!) will be available in the first Mario Kart 8 DLC pack that launches in November.
Eiji Aonuma also had some choice words about the bike. He explained on Miiverse how the Master Cycle was designed after a horse, describing it as “literally a horse of steel.” A little bit larger than other bikes that appear in the game, the Master Cycle allows players to make sharp turns, and Aonuma also admitted that he would love to incorporate it in a future Zelda title!
“It looked so cool that I also want it to appear in games I work on.”
Maybe Aonuma will create a futuristic Zelda where the Master Sword evolves into a bike? That would definitely change the conventions of the Zelda series!
