Perhaps one of the more surprising reveals regarding Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U has been sent out today via Miiverse and the Smash Bros. website. Our favorite cel-shaded swordsman, Toon Link will be returning from 2008′s Super Smash Bros. Brawl to commemorate the release of The Wind Waker HD, and boy does he look nice in HD, even without cel-shading! Hit the jump to see the Hero of Winds’ glorious return!
While many fan rosters had included a cel-shaded Link prior to Brawl’s release, I found myself pleasantly surprised at his inclusion. I find myself even more surprised that he’s returning, due to his similarities to regular Link, and the fact that he already appears in the game as a background character in the Spirit Train stage. I suppose it makes sense considering that the announcement was made on the day The Wind Waker HD releases in Japan.
So how do you feel about Toon Link returning? Personally, I want a new moveset for him to differentiate him from regular Link, but the pictures showing bombs and arrows make me a little discouraged in that regard. Here’s hoping his other moves are a little different! It also makes me excited by the possibility of seeing a Toon Zelda who turns into Tetra. What about you? You know where the comment section is, have at it!
