Race Around on Link's Motorcycle from Breath of the Wild With This Free Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Update
A free game update is available now on Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo released a free update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch. The update lets players race as Link (the hero from The Legend of Zelda franchise) while wearing his Champion’s Tunic and driving his Master Cycle Zero motorcycle from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Players can also select new Ancient Tires and Paraglider parts to customize their vehicle before each race or tournament.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the updated re-release of the Wii U game Mario Kart 8. The game is a blast for the entire family, letting up to four players race together locally on the same screen. Players can race as dozens of different characters from the Nintendo universe -- everyone from Mario and Princess Peach to Isabelle from the Animal Crossing series -- and customize their vehicles with different parts (each with their own stats) to suit their play style. Plus, the game includes a “Smart Steering” feature that helps little racers stay on the track and in the race.
