Breath Of The Wild Content Now In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Via Update


Nintendo has announced a new update to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which adds some Zelda content from Link's latest adventure to his Mario Kart races. Here are the patch notes, for version 1.6.0:
  • New character added: Link (Champion's Tunic)
  • New vehicle added: Master Cycle Zero
  • New tires added: Ancient Tires
  • New glider added: Paraglider

The content here comes from Breath of the Wild. Link's blue Champion Outfit is as close to a canon outfit as you can get in a game that lets you change clothes on the fly. The Master Cycle, introduced in the Champion of the Ballads DLC, is Link's motorcycle, making a natural fit for the Mario Kart series.
