New Super Smash Bros Screenshot Shows Link in New Costume

By   /   Jun 24, 2014

In the recent days, Masahiro Sakurai has been regularly sharing screenshots to his Miiverse so that the fans of the upcoming Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS get something to latch onto as they wait for the game. This time, he shared an image of Link in a new costume.

As always, the image was accompanied by a caption that talks about what is being shared. What you are looking at above is a costume that is inspired from his clothes in Skyward Sword, here’s what Sakurai said:

“Pic of the day. Here’s Link in an outfit based on his ordinary clothes in Skyward Sword! The art style looks a little different, but the actual clothing model is still his usual tunic.”

He started sharing images from within the game on June 16 and has since shared half a dozen images. The first one showed off weapons that Mii Swordfighters could use, the second had Eggrobo a guest character, and then there were others like one that had Donkey Kong’s Storm Punch and another with Pac-Man.

Coming back to Link and the screenshot, he does look different, but it is interesting that they have made it look different altogether unlike previous attempts when only a primary color was changed.

How excited are you about the different characters that Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS is going to bring you? The game will be released in holidays this year.
