Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Link has been added to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch.

In a free update, available now, Nintendo added Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as a playable character, complete with his Champion’s Tunic.

Not only that, Link comes with his Master Cycle Zero motorcycle, which was added to Breath of the Wild in the Champions’ Ballad DLC. You’ll also note the Ancient Tires, and the famous Breath of the Wild paraglider are here, too.

Update 1.6.0 is completely free. Outside of the new content, the patch also comes with a few “gameplay revisions,” according to Nintendo. Take a look at Link and his Master Cycle Zero in the trailer below:
