Princess Zelda Confirmed for Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Another veteran fighter has been confirmed for the new Super Smash Bros. games, Princess Zelda.

To celebrate the launch of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds in Japan, the official Super Smash Bros. website lifted the lid on the return of Princess Zelda in today's update.

Weaving her magic spells and dealing a physical slap or two, Hyrule's leader makes a welcome return to the game. It's uncertain whether Shiek will also return as a dual or separate character, but what is known is that Zelda will be playable on both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

"It's great to see so many female characters this time around", said producer Sakurai on Miiverse.

the twilight princess design again? Hmm

I wanted Skyward Sword Zelda Smilie

I hope the character customization will fix this problem. Many costumes to collect, maybe even different faces?

I wonder what that Phantom is. Side-B? Down-B, making Sheik a separate fighter? Or perhaps just an assist trophy that they put in the screenshot for some laughs?

Didn't expect Skyward Sword Zelda after they showed Link off. Still looks good in hd though!

I also wanted Skyward Sword Zelda!
(She's much hotter. Smilie )

Hmm - maybe they'll do bonus costumes! SS Link and Zelda would be grand.

It should have been Skyward Sword Zelda, she had way more personality. Plus  seeing a skyward sword version of Sheik would have been cool. I'm hoping Sakurai is only showing off characters available from the start. I want unlockables to be a secret until launch. 

I'm hoping for some more obscure Nintendo Characters like Kachi, Medusa, Aeron and Shulk to get roster spots
