Nintendo will include two incarnations of Link from The Legend of Zelda series in its chaotic Super Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS.

In addition to the adult Link from Skyward Sword, the publisher will include Toon Link from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.  This isn’t Toon Link’s first time battling it out in the four-player action title. The character appeared previously in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii U.

Check out a gallery of Toon Link in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS:

Super Smash Bros. has players facing off against each other in four-player fighting matches. Gamers can choose from different Nintendo stars who have different abilities ripped from their games. For the first time, Nintendo will release a Super Smash Bros. game simultaneously on its home console and its handheld.
