Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Adds Breath Of The Wild Crossover Content

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Adds Breath Of The Wild Crossover Content

A few days ago, we posted a report on how Nintendo would be providing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with "further updates".

For more potential upcoming content for a wide variety of Nintendo titles, check out our breakdown of a possible Nintendo Direct leak, here. This morning another nice surprise hit the track.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Version 1.6 dropped by surprise tonight. Link's new blue Champion Outfit reflects the new outfit Link wears in Breath of the Wild. Once it's put into place, you'll be able to see a very familiar bike from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild make an appearance.


It's the second big Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update in a matter of weeks. Breath of The Wild "Champions Tunic" Link, and his trusty Master Cycle Zero.

This is also not the first crossover DLC for "Breath of the Wild". Are you wishing that some other Nintendo franchises would show up in this iconic kart racer, or are you happy that Link is getting a little more love?

The update also includes unspecified "revisions to improve gameplay", as well as some unlister content, according to Nintendo's support website.
