Super Smash Twilight Princess by Lethalityrush Super Smash Twilight Princess by Lethalityrush
Old news - Link and Zelda have been unveiled for the next Super Smash Bros, and they're still in a form most similar to their Twilight Princess designs! (Though Link's colors are brighter this time around)
Too bad for Skyward Sword Zelda and Link.
Will TP Ganondorf make a return? We shall see...

I can't say I minded the return to the TP versions, they are my personal favorite designs the characters have had.  Though Breath of the Wild Link looks pretty stellar, even if we haven't seen him in the Green tunic.

TP Zelda, Ganondorf and Link are the best versions Nintendo has ever released. Until a better one (doubt it), they should stick with those forever.

TP Ganondorf did return.  Also, I'm not bothered by them reusing Twilight Princess Link and Zelda.  It's them using Other M Samus that hurts.

Though you have to admit that is the right call to do the TP version for Zelda. Though I have no reason why I just say it's a good call.

Is no one gonna talk about how Link from Ocarina of Time has had two appearances as well? (Technically three)

Link, Zelda and Ganondorf should be 'list' characters

you select them and you get a sublist of which version of that character you want to play

each one with a different play style and final smash

it would solve a lot of problems and would free up the Toon Link spot for another character from a different franchise

the Inklings for example

that is very true, but in my opinion their designs and similar movesets are kept because Twilight Princess is the best game of the Legend of Zelda series ever.

To be fair, neither does TP Zelda. They don't need one; I've gotten pretty good with Zelda, though I think I'm closer to being a "tough scrub" than a major-league Smash player.

Yeah to Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf! To heck with worrying about Zelda. Ganondorf has languished in a cesspool of Captain Falcon comparisons for too long; it's time to stop holding him back!

Where Zelda is concerned, I think she's fine. Appearance isn't a big deal for me, so the biggest problem Zelda caused is that Sheik still shares Zelda's Final Smash, despite getting his/her (definitely "her," confirmed by Nintendo Directs about Hyrule Warriors) own slot on the roster. Come to think of it, Dark Pit even copied Zelda's Final Smash, and several other new characters copied Captain Falcon's. Both of those are hard to set up compared to, say, Giga Bowser.

Twilight Princess was highly detailed, so I don't see why not.

Best to show off graphics. Skyward and the likes are too cartoony.
(Oh wait they're fighting against Kirby and Duck Hunt...)

Graphics were NEVER the point in the first place.

I agree that TP Zelda had the most/best detail, though. Skyward Sword Zelda's face also creeped me out for some reason.

Link has a Skyward Sword outfit option!!!  When I'm selecting it on the 3ds it looks like a white outfit because of the pale shirt! 

I have no idea if anyone else has posted this fact, I'm just doing it now just in case.

Needs more Four Swords. Unfortunately, the developers stopped making it about "A battle of Nintendo's All-Stars", and started turning it into "a battle for Nintendo's Promotion of Future Products". I'm not saying the newcomers in the last wave were bad characters. They even seem to have good mechanics to support other fighters, too. But Bayonetta has had exactly two games, and only one was on Nintendo consoles, to mixed reviews. Meanwhile, Corrin's game won't have even made it to America by the time his Smash DLC does. He/she (I'm leaning toward "she" because the male avatar is too feminine anyway) won't have any history with Nintendo to honor. It feels like something fundamental about the series was lost over time, but if it keeps being fun, I'll buy it.

I tried to forget about that scene. Not so much because of topless Link, but because he was across the sumo ring from topless Mayor Bo.

I think they just give it a spot light because (Me being a super Twilight Princess fan) It's not as popular as other games, I'm happy they used the models in SSBB and now SSB4 and added Ghirahim and Midna as assist trophies.

Ganondorf is the main enemy of the Legend of Zelda series, as Bowser is the main enemy of Mario. We actually need MORE villains in Smash. However, Sakurai subtly confirmed that Ridley would not work, as Bayonetta was ranked #1 in the Smash Ballot from among the "realizable" characters (i.e., those that would function in the framework of Super Smash Brothers).

:iconalienskiller1:
alienskiller1 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2015
Oh yeah. I heard of it, but there's one question. Why the hell does people want Ridley in smash so much? That makes no sense to me.
Reply
:iconjjars:
jjars Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
It's actually confirmed to make no sense, but in a stealthy way. I think it's a result of having two fighters and an Assist Trophy called "Samus". I personally LOVE the way Ridley works on the Pyrosphere. To recap: He's a giant, intimidating boss that shows up whenever and attacks whatever he pleases. Killing him is almost impossible, but rewards those who try with a KO point or Ridley's aid. So everyone competes to gain Ridley's favor. The Pyrosphere is a battle over Ridley, but no one can aspire to BE Ridley. In short: Pyrosphere's Ridley is GOD. Making him playable would ruin all that.

Yes, but there are a lot of things in games that make no sense. A certain degree of suspension of disbelief is required.

The only things that don't make sense that we *shouldn't* have to put up with are the ones that don't make sense in gameplay. Like Ridley being playable, which would be less fun than anyone thinks, one way or another. Either he's too big to fit on platforms and makes a huge, slow target that everyone picks on, or he's the size of NES Ridley, which would look ridiculous and remove half his usual bag of tricks. Specifically the ones related to his whip tail, wings, and grabs, meaning he'd only have his various fireballs and other breath weapons left. Not exactly a complete Smash-fighter moveset.

Actually TP Ganondorf returned. I don't see why they don't use the SS designs (you're gonna tell me, Zelda doesn't do anything in SS, well, except when she's possessed, TP Zelda doesn't either).

I figured out why SS Link and SS Zelda weren't used! SS Ganondorf doesn't exist, that's why. It would have to be Demise, who was basically trying (and failing) to mimic TP Ganondorf's final battle formula anyway. Sword duel, one sword for each combatant, no magic powers allowed.

WHY would Demise and Ganondorf lock away their own magic?! TP Ganondorf had enough power to blow up Hyrule Castle just by yelling, and Demise clearly had a lot of swirly dark powers at his disposal in the cutscene right before he leaves the portal to his battle! Why not use their insane power to cement their utter superiority over the puny human? This is why I prefer Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf, who actually BEAT Link in no-holds-barred combat...though he left to gloat before finishing the job...
