Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Update 1.6 Out Now; Patch Notes Detailed

New Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update brings Breath of the Wild items to the race course

New Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update brings Breath of the Wild items to the race course

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

Takahashi said 'updates in the plural, so it's not hard to imagine some of the other characters and karts may be updated to represent their most recent games, perhaps Super Mario Odyssey and Captain Toad amongst them.

The surprise announcement and release of this new Mario Kart 8 content comes just days after Nintendo teased more DLC for the racing game. But who are we kidding, we're really after the Master Cycle Zero.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Switch port of the original Wii U title, hasn't seen many major changes since its release for the system, until now.

Watch the first trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters
While fans of the enormous monsters will have to wait another two years for the crossover event Godzilla vs. Kong, the former is headed back into theaters for a sequel before his matchup with the giant ape.

A new racer has entered the fray in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. In the new V1.6.0 update, we get a new Champion's Tunic skin for Link, a Master Cycle Zero bike, Ancient Tyres, and Paraglider.

That's Link taking to the track on his Master Cycle Zero, from the Champion's Ballad DLC for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Zelda Breath of the Wild was the highlight release alongside the Nintendo Switch release in March previous year and went on to become not only one of the best-selling games on the system but the best selling Zelda game period.

Update includes revisions to improve gameplay, as well as some content not listed here.
