When Nintendo announced DLC for Mario Kart 8 it caused quite a stir, not least because it'll incorporate other much-loved franchises into the racer. There'll be The Legend of Zelda x Mario Kart 8 in November and Animal Crossing x Mario Kart 8 in May 2015, with each pack also incorporating other IPs such as F-Zero.

Details are slowly being revealed in terms of what will be included in these packs, and Nintendo UK has tweeted some concept art of The Master Cycle, which will have "plenty of horse power" (geddit?) when it arrives in November's DLC. You can see this below.

Do you like the look of this new bike, and do you plan to take it for a spin with any characters other than Link? Let us know.
