The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Link

first_img Link Breathes in The Wild!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Link. ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… Who Are They?Mario may be the face of Nintendo, but to many hardcore fans Link and The Legend of Zelda series represent the true pinnacle of Nintendo game design. These epic action-adventures are among the most celebrated video games in existence, turning Link into an almost Campbellian mythical figure. Even his default name, Link, is meant to signify the link between the game and the player.Smash HistoryHaving both Mario and Link in the same game for the first time, Nintendo’s two heaviest hitters, is what gave the original Smash Bros. so much of its initial crossover appeal. Having a medieval fantasy character battling it out with an Italian plumber stretched out the possibility space as far as it would go. Link was also the first character in the series to use a sword, which is cool even if you don’t know Zelda. And he’s been in every Smash game since as one of its elder statesmen.What Looks New in Ultimate?As Link is reborn in a new era for each Zelda game, he changes his look and moves. Smash Bros. games have tried to represent that, shifting from Ocarina of Time Link to Twilight Princess Link. In Smash Ultimate, this version of Link comes from Nintendo Switch modern masterpiece The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This means Link wears his blue Champion’s Tunic with no hat and receives a new Final Smash based on Ancient Arrows. But this tweaks his regular gameplay, too. He can remotely detonate bomb runes, shoot and pickup multiple arrows at once, and swipe sword beams when he is undamaged.Our Hopes?Link has always been a weird Smash Bros. character to me. He has a sword, but a bunch of other characters have a wider array of sword moves. Link is supposed to make more use of tricky projectiles like bombs and arrows and boomerangs, but I’ve never found them to be that fun in previous games. Plus he’s way heavier than you’d think. The remote bombs are a great change, as is the faster aerial movement for pretty much everyone, but I’m hoping Ultimate encourages me to use everything Link has to offer.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation.
