The lights are on
Longtime Super Smash Bros. combatant Zelda has been confirmed for a return to Nintendo’s arena brawler. New screenshots of Hyrule’s princess have been shared by game director Masahiro Sakurai.
In one of the images, you’ll notice what appears to be Zelda controlling a large suit of armor. This would be a new move for her repertoire. Absent from the screenshots is Zelda’s alter-ego Sheik.
Will the masked mystery be making a return as a separate character, or is this just a facet of the character that Sakurai has yet to unveil? Here’s hoping that some of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS stay a mystery before they are released. No date or release window has been confirmed for these titles.
For the latest reveals, check out a new look at Dr. Wily's Castle, the Skull Kid, Marth, Sonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

Sweet! I can't wait to play this game!
SS Zelda has a better design. Cool to include the Phantom though.
And wtf is up with Link's face in that one shot?
I'm kinda glad Sheik might not be in it.... That was the character that my brother always used to kick my butt....
princess zelda!?!? awesome!
I am so excited for this game.
Zelda is such a pimp.
I really didn't care to much for Zelda in Brawl. She was a character only used when doing a Zelda universe character only fight with friends.
Wait...Zelda is Shiek?
Shiek sucked anyway. I'm happy see just Zelda (that guardian thing is probably a new Down B).
The suit of armor looks more like an assist trophy to me than one of her moves. I'm glad to see another character is finally revealed though.
Next announcement we hear is: Sheik has been confirmed for Super Smash Bros Wii U. I really hope they leave some characters unconfirmed so I can be super surprised to see them.
The pictures with DK and Rosalina make me feel awkward. I don't really know what's going on in them.
