Mario Kart 8 is arguably the best game on the Wii U so far, and if you haven’t picked it up yet, you’ve just been given another reason to pick it up this holiday season: the first DLC pack allows you to play as Link. That’s right — players will soon be able to download Nintendo fan favorite, Link from the Legend of Zelda series, to use on the Mario Kart 8 tracks. This will be Link’s very first Mario Kart appearance EVER!

Players can purchase this first bit of Mario Kart 8 DLC — which also includes Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach and eight new tracks —for just $8, and will be able to use it once the DLC unlocks on November 13.
