Despite Aonuma’s veto, Tingle will be joining the battle roster in Hyrule Warriors thanks to the Majora’s Mask DLC pack launching February 5. The DLC was announced during this morning’s Nintendo Direct, and will also include Child Link who wields the Kokiri Sword and Fierce Deity mask.

Tingle proves he is suited for battle as he wipes out enemies using balloon power, and pummels them with a big honkin bag of Rupees. He takes “kill them with kindness” to a new level by planting his Fatal Kiss of Death on his enemies, and gets down with his bad self doing the Kooloo Limpah dance. I’ve been wanting Tingle to join Hyrule Warriors since day one, so today’s Direct made my dream come true!

Child Link may be adorable, but that doesn’t make him any less powerful. He effortlessly tears through hordes of Bokoblins with his Kokiri Sword. He’s also equipped with a big fan favorite: the Fierce Deity mask. Donning the mask unleashes tremendous power — those pesky baddies won’t stand a chance.

You can see Tingle and Child Link in action in the video below.

    Young Link + FD Mask….I’m happy!

  • Max Nichols

    Alas, no Skullkid.

    • Ryan Haney

      Look at the silhouettes at 18:52. There might be a costume with some Skull Kid functionality. Link also has the Keaton Mask on the side of his head.

      • Justin Graham

        Not functionality, but just aesthetics. And it’s unclear which character is getting the costume.

  • Jason

    Tingle.

    Sadness time infinity.

    • Josh Otanda Henderson

      I want to upvote this like seven times.

  • Fantom Rockman

  • Anibal

  • Ryan Haney

    I’m very happy about this!

  • D0xis

    I see a Skull Kid!

  • Jesus Oliveira Neto

    why not make skull kid be playable??? OMG they missed a PERFECT new character T-T … I dont believe this would be so hard to do and EVERYONE was wanting it =(

  • Trinosaur

    I can’t believe they actually did it……. and yet I am not surprised. I really shouldn’t be anyway. XD

  • Soeroah

    Aww man, I watched the EU version of the Direct first thing today so as to avoid spoilers, turns out they completely neglected to mention Hyrule Warriors :/

    Ah well, still cool.

  • MJ

    Ugh….

  • Isaac Cook

    I really wish they would’ve added Vaati at some point. Oh well…

    • Ryan Haynes

      OoT/MM, TP, and SS Only I’m afraid…

      • Isaac Cook

        Don’t give them excuses!

  • Ryan Haynes

    The fact that he’s holding the Kokiri Sword 2-handed means that the Great Fairy Sword is a very likely weapon. Also: Here’s to hoping they add “star” weapons that aren’t 8-bit.

  • Ryan Haynes

    Looking closely, I think the Skull Kid Costume is for Adult Link, considering the proportions.
