I’m not making this up, Link is getting a Motorcycle. Granted, this is happening when he’s added to Mario Kart 8, and it’s not just any Motorcycle, it’s the Master Cycle. But still, with the horse head on the front of it, the shield on the side, and the Triforce rims, it has to be admitted: it’s a pretty bad-ass ride.
I think it’s rad as hell that Nintendo is taking their characters and mashing them together, especially in a game like Mario Kart where the story doesn’t matter. Why not get Link in there? They’ve got Animal Crossing characters on the way for Mario Kart 8 as well. Great! There’s no reason (as far as I can see) not to turn the Mario Kart franchise into Super Smash Brothers Racing.
Because what I want really? Is the ability to race on Kirby’s Star as a kart.
