Toon Link Is Coming To Super Smash Bros. On Wii U And 3DS

Toon Link isn't a clone of the more realistic looking hero. Wind Waker's champion brings a set of tools that are unique to his adventure, and we're glad to see him included in the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros.

With the release of Wind Waker HD, Toon Link's appearance on the roster makes sense. You can see how he'll appear on both platforms below. Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS will be out in 2014.

We've also got images of the Wii Fit Trainer and Animal Crossing Villager, Princess Peach, and a new Pilotwings stage.

  • YEAH!!!! He's mah boy

  • Yay!!! He's one of my favorite characters to use, along with Snake, Lucario, Wario, Marth, and Ike!
  • To be honest, I wasn't expecting this, but this is great!

  • I figured he would be in Smash back when they showed off the Spirit Tracks stage.

  • That screenshot of the two Links together on the 3DS really highlights the graphical abilities of the system. I thought the upgraded Rage of the Gladiator looked good.
  • Will the original Link be in the game? Or just this guy?
  • YES! Thank you, Nintendo! Toon Link is better than just a clone, and he is by far one of my favorites.

  • AWWWW YESSS!!!! I can't wait to play as Toon Link!

  • Man, Nintendo's games look so much better when their graphics don't suck. Too bad they probs won't catch up to XBOX one and PS4 for about 8 years.
  • He was in the last one too.  I guess, if anything, the only surprises are who DOESN'T make the cut.  I'd rather know who's been left out OR show us new characters.

  • It'd be cool if they had an 8-bit Link. Or an 8-bit anyone.
  • Sweet! I love using Toon Link.

    Hang on... Peach, Olimar, and Toon Link are confirmed, but Yoshi hasn't yet? That doesn't make any sense.

  • Great news. I actually prefer Toon Link to the actual Link. I was already resigning myself to the possibility that he won't be the new SSB.
  • He looks sooo good! I have been pretty impressed with the quality of the character models so far.

  • *Announcer voice*  TOON LINK!!!  Man. I might actually get me a Wii U when this comes out... Maybe I'll wait for one more price drop.

  • I want to see some new characters! Why buy a new Smash if there are only 3 new characters. I want to see Samus's clone.
  • I actually like this addition. I wonder how Toon Link would fair against actual Link.
  • Awesome! Toon Link was one of my mains.  I actually wasn't expecting him to return, so this is a relief.

    It's nice to see a less obvious character announcement being made.

  • What is Peach doing to the back of his head?
  • I love Wind Waker, I really do, but Young Link was waaaaay cooler for this than Toon Link. Oh well, I'll still play as him sometimes since he is a really good speed character.
