Riding in on horse puns, Nintendo America's Twitter page just posted a picture of Link from "The Legend of Zelda" driving a motorcycle stylized as a horse. This new vehicle is called the Master Cycle, a possible reference to the Master Sword and/or Master Quest.
The Master Cycle is part of "Mario Kart 8's" first DLC pack, which includes Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach as playable characters, the Blue Falcon of "F-Zero" fame, and eight new courses put into two cups- the Yoshi Egg Cup and the Triforce Cup.
"Mario Kart 8" released on May 30 in North America and is available for the Wii U.
