Now You Can Race as Link in Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 gives everyone the chance to take to the track with Mario and crew for the usual racing antics, but now it has some incredible new DLC. The character everyone is talking about is Link from Legend of Zelda who has a killer Triforce themed bike that he rides while wielding his sword like a total boss. He doesn't just idly carry the sword either, but does little slice-and-dice movements with the thing when it starts glowing during boost jumps. They've even added in all the little sounds Link makes in Zelda to make the whole thing perfect. RELATED: See the Race-Worthy 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter
As cool as Link is, he's just one of several new characters in this batch of DLC. You also get Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and 8 new tracks to play. Imgur user InsectAnalyst has captured some fantastic screen shots for those of you who haven't had a chance to download it yet.
The whole think is brilliant with Hyrule, F-Zero, and Dragon Driftway all just waiting for you to take the controller and while a way an hour, or two, or 20.
