Mario Kart 8 Deluxe‘s newest free update (1.6.0) brings our favorite Hyrulean hero, Link, complete with a new cycle, new gear, and even a new kite based on items from Breath of the Wild.

You can zoom your way to the finish line on the new Master Cycle Zero, which includes the Ancient Tires, fly with the Paraglider, and adorn Link with his famous Champion’s Tunic.

The free update also brings “revisions to improve gameplay,” according to Nintendo’s MK8D patch notes, as well as “content not listed here,” which could be as simple as balancing changes to each character.

With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hitting shelves this December, we can only hope that more characters are added to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in the future.
