The latest revealed character in the roster of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games is certainly a familiar face around these parts. Toon Link returns, and he’s looking more colourful and stylistic than ever. Perfect timing, too, with the recent launch of The Wind Waker HD.
It’s not a completely shocking surprise, but it is nice to see my main in action in the new titles. You can read on for a slew of screenshots of Toon Link in both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.
Some of his moves from Brawl appear to be confirmed here, such as his Up + B spiralling slash, his Hero’s Bow and, judging by the Wind Waker-style smoke in one image, his bomb-throwing. You can also catch him posing with other characters, sleeping on the job and taunting with the Wind Waker baton. You can even see him compared with his more “realistic” iteration, with quite the size difference!
Update: Friday’s update from the Super Smash Bros. site features another screenshot of Toon Link. It shows that his bombs can again be caught by other characters.
