Super Smash Bros. Ultimate proves to have a lot of references to The Legend of Zelda. And more specifically, Ultimate has a lot of references to Breath of the Wild. Beyond Link’s re-design and brand new gear, one of the references we’ve so far seen to Breath of the Wild is the Great Plateau Tower stage. The stage is full of loving nods to the latest Zelda title — King Rhoam can be seen gliding in the background, for example — and it also has great background music. For those who…

As we bask in the afterglow of all the Zelda related Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news we received yesterday, there always seems to be even more details to catch while we anticipate the game’s release.
