It's not long now until November, which means the first batch of DLC for Mario Kart 8 will arrive. As it's The Legend of Zelda x Mario Kart 8 and will include Link as a playable character, there's understandable hype.

The recent reveal of The Master Cycle naturally grabbed our attention, then, a rather slick bike that resembles Epona. Eiji Aonuma has now shared his views on it through Miiverse, revealing a little about how it'll ride and making a slightly startling admission.

His reference to wanting to use it is likely to have Legend of Zelda fans dreaming, or possibly dreading, the implications. Naturally, Aonuma-san's desire and admiration for the design doesn't mean it'll actually happen, but the talk of a Zelda game with a fresh, potentially futuristic setting will return; it's something that the famous series producer has spoken about in the past.

For the record, this Master Cycle brings the known content for the first DLC pack to include the following:

3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
4 Vehicles - Blue Falcon, B Dasher, Master Cycle + 1 unannounced vehicle
8 Courses including Wario's Gold Mine (MK Wii) and an F-Zero track

Let us know what you think of the Master Cycle and Aonuma-san's comments below.
