The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 is one of three downloadable content packs available for Mario Kart 8, the others being Mercedes-Benz × Mario Kart 8 and Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8. It was released on November 13, 2014.[1]

This is the first time Retro Courses and Nitro Courses are combined into cups.

The re-release of Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Switch as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, contains all the previously released DLC for Mario Kart 8 in the base game, including all the content in this pack.


An overview of the contents of the pack.

Like Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8, this pack contains three new characters, four new vehicles (3 karts and a bike), a new set of tires, a new glider, and two new cups with four courses each.


These characters, once obtained, may appear as computer racers. Additionally, in online races, players that have not purchased the pack can see other players use these characters. All 3 of these characters make their playable debut in the Mario Kart series through this pack. In addition, Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach, despite being forms of their respective base characters, are considered separate from them in this game and take up different locations on the character select screen.
