Zelda Producer Shares More Details On Link’s Bike In Mario Kart 8

By Ishaan . October 16, 2014 . 10:03am

In a recent post to Miiverse, The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma shared a few more details about the Master Cycle vehicle being released as DLC for Mario Kart 8 next month. Aonuma says the bike is designed to look like a “horse of steel”.

 

“You can use many different types of bikes in Mario Kart 8, but this Master Cycle has a design that characters ride leaning forward, allowing you to make sharp turns on the course,” Aonuma wrote.

 

“Also, this bike is designed a little bigger compared to other bikes, so you’ll definitely leave an impression on the track when you race with it.”

 

Aonuma then adds, “The development team showed me how the Master Cycle races on the track, and I was overwhelmed by how great it looked. (It looked so cool that I also want it to appear in games I work on.)”

    How long before it starts appearing in later LoZ games
    I wouldn’t mind

  • Namuro

    Go on, Aonuma-san! Put the bike in the next Zelda game. It already has that high-tech looking bow, might as well throw in a high-tech vehicle in there as well! LOL

    But really though, racing around the open-world of Zelda on that bike would be so damn cool…

    Didn’t Aonuma once have a idea for a futuristic zelda setting? Seeing Link on a bike makes me want him to try it out.

    • Kaihedgie

      That was one of the ideas for the very first game. It had a setting very similar to the early Ultima games, using futuristic items in a medieval setting

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      oh a new Fi, Navi, Midna and King of Red Lion companion that transforms into a bike.

      • Oxybelis
        • Souffrir

          I cannot look at that cover without wincing at what’s about to happen to that girl’s hair.

        • Strawberry Starlet

          I am very very confused at what is even happening in this pic.

    • Fox

      Well, we had robots in Skyward Sword, and lasers in most games post-OoT… and Zelda U looks to have robots AND lasers.

  • GigaGaia

    A release date for the first DLC would be nice.
