Link Joins Mario Kart 8 as DLC Character
If you’re a frequent visitor of Toonbarn, you may have noticed that we regularly post entries about the Legend of Zelda franchise. Every chance we get. It’s because several of Toonbarn’s contributors are fans of the games and the fact that it had an animated TV series (no matter how crappy it was), gives us an excuse to write about Link without straying too far away from the site’s focus.
We also like Nintendo’s Mario (because who doesn’t these days?), and now we’re going to see the two IPs cross over again but not in a party fighting game, but on the tracks. According to a recent post from Nintendo UK’s online store, Mario Kart 8’s DLC plans include the green tunic-wearing elf boy as one of the playable characters. The first batch is scheduled to come out for November and is priced at £7.00. The DLC pack includes the aforementioned Link, Cat Peach, and Tanooki Mario along with 4 new vehicles and 8 new courses.
