Zelda joins the roster for Super Smash Bros.

Today Nintendo revealed Princess Zelda for Super Smash Bros!

zelda-smash

Today Nintendo announced that Princess Zelda would be joining the roster of Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS. Along with the announcement they included several interesting screenshots of the new character. Zelda looks stunning in HD, though my favorite screenshot of the bunch is the one with Rosalina in the background.

Which is your favorite?

    where’s here Sheik tranformation?

  • Tekina Sibawo

    No surprise here. Though that new move involving the phantom from spirit tracks both excited and worries me. Though… I doubt sakurai would get rid of sheik

    • majora :D

      I’ll take a guess and say it is an assist trophy

      • LevenThumps

        I thought it was at first, but the expression on Zelda’s face has me thinking it’s one of her moves. I still don’t think this would replace Sheik however (I’m thinking this might replace her Side+B).

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          can be

        • Mario

          Possibly.

        • ThisGuy18

          At first i thought it must’ve been her final smash, but she’d be glowing, and the course would be dimly lit if that were the case right?

          • LevenThumps

            If the rules of Final Smash’s are the same as Brawl’s, than this wouldn’t be a final smash.

        • Tekina Sibawo

          If they get rid of din’s fire I will start a petition on change.org! lol. Din’s Fire is one of the better projectiles in the game. Plus if they get rid of it what are they going to do with Farore’s wind and Nayru’s love? Just leave them there with no explanation?

    SHOULD HAVE BEEN MIDNA!!!! D:

    Nice. :)

    Zelda Joestar, FTW!!!!

  • Mohammad Badir

    I wish other Japanese and Western devs take a note of how Nintendo can put beautiful women in their games without overly sexualizing them.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      Seriously. Nintendo sells games based on how fun they are. Not how sexy the women are.

    • Nicolas Dorion

      “cough cough” wii fit trainer “cough cough”

    • NintenScience

      As Daniel Gonzalez told us before, religion has NO place on Wii U Daily. So please STOP posting comments with “without overly sexualizing them.”

      • Mohammad Badir

        what the hell does sexualization have to do with religion?

        • NintenScience

          Religion hates sexualisation.

          • ThisGuy18

            Smh lol I’m sorry but that is just rediculously narrow-minded thinking. It’s possible for a person with no religion to want to have respect for women. There are MANY people who would rather play videogames without seeing a holographic female strut their stuff every 5 minutes, you don’t need to put religion into it

          • NintenScience

            Religion has influenced ALMOST everything NEGATIVE in every culture, so it would be a religious person that would hate [and censor] sex…

          • ThisGuy18

            Negative according to who? You and the people who wear lab coats? So in order for us to be well rounded people/gamers we have to approve of bare boobs flying across the screen at random? Hmm that makes more sense now. Thanx for changing my opinion

          • NintenScience

            The irony and hypocrisy of you getting mad when you see someone without any clothing and you smiling when you are causing violence in video games such as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4

            Hahaha, religious video gamers make me laugh…

          • ThisGuy18

            Ooh so you know my life? K i don’t even like call or duty personally cuz i think it’s boring, and I’m not really a fan of blood spattering in videogames. i Don’t own ANY of their games. I got super mario 3D world yesterday and have been playing it non-stop sooo? Maybe you wanna think twice before you go making assumptions about somebody else’s life?

          • NintenScience

            So, what are your interests in video games?

          • ThisGuy18

            Lol you really wanna know what this “religious video gamer” likes to play now cuz you got it wrong? Hmm

          • Guest

            ??

            It is a question…

          • ThisGuy18

            Lol yes, yes it is

          • MetroidZero

            Well imagine if everyone followed the example of Christ: “Love for your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

            But I digress.

          • Shy Guy

            Obvious troll was obvious, and you fell for it, you made Princess Peach cry!

          • ThisGuy18

            I didn’t fall for anything lol if you keep scrolling you’ll find the argument didn’t last that long. Real trolls keep commenting without using much logic or reason. This guy isn’t a troll

          • greengecko007

            Right, because there is no religion that dominates the middle east where women have no rights, are viewed as property, and when they are raped it is somehow their fault. Oh wait…

          • Guest

            What do you mean?

          • greengecko007

            It was just a joke.

          • andrewjcole

            Oh brother. Here comes the long comment string.

          • NintenScience

            What?

          • Guest

            Based on that logic, if your mom hated video games, would that mean that every time I talk about video games, I’m talking about your mom ?

            The only one who actually brought out religion in this comment section in the first place is you, so you only have yourself to blame.

      • Wigwig95

        I think the comment is more related to morals and respect for women than it does religion.

        • NintenScience

          A “Sex hating morality” will always come from religion, the organised collection of beLIEfs, which have been proven false.

          • ShadowKnight7

            Well, your “beLIEf” is that “hate of sexualisation” comes from “religion”……….

          • Guest

            ??

          • ThisGuy18

            It’s true! Talking about how religion doesn’t belong here when he’s the first person on this page to try and push his agenda… oh the irony

          • Guest

            ???

          • ThisGuy18

            ????

          • Guest

            ????????

          • Guest

            “A “Sex hating morality” will always come from religion”

            I’m an atheist and I also think our society is oversexualized. Therefore, your argument is invalid.

      • Josiah Parsons

        Wait, Whaaaaat?

        • NintenScience

          xd

    • greengecko007

      So what about Samus? The first Metroid had a bikini ending. Then there’s her skin tight catsuit…

      • NintenScience

        *slurps*

    • Captinn2

      I know right?

      It’s like, almost all the freaking time, whenever I see some epic RPG or epic fighting game, all the women in the game have freaking huge….boobs. e.e

  • http://www.facebook.com/LilMajerTheCartune Cartune

    Because who didn’t see this coming…

    • Mario

      Mario: NOBODY!!

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        good one

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      NO ONE !!!!!!!!!!

    • Sol Ridgeway

      It wasn’t about if she was going to show, but what version were we getting. I hope they have different skins for her. I was hoping for Skyward Sword or use this game to preview how she would look in the new Zelda game.

  • Adrian

    Which version of Zelda is that? Twilight Princess version?

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Yep

    • majora :D

      Is not the exact model, but it looks heavily based in Twilight Princess

    • DragonSilths

      I bet its similar to what the new Zelda will look like in Zelda HD for Wii U. Just like how Link looks in Smash Bros, I bet he will look similar to that in Zelda HD.

  • LevenThumps

    Not surprised for Zelda to be in the game. Although the top left picture looks like it may be a new move for her, which has me excited.

  • ZeldaFanzzzz

    Zelda looks gorgeous in HD!!!

  • Angel714

    hi guys I am new here. I think super smash needs some cha cha :)

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      some what ??? o.O

      • Angel714

        cha cha, he comes out in the Monster Hunter series, everyone that plays knows he’s a very good candidate for super smash bros

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          eeehhh there is already a capcom character so that’s enough

          • Angel714

            it wouldn’t hurt to see a new Capcom character in the game

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            let me think uh YES

          • Angel714

            cha cha’s debut was on Monster Hunter tribe which was an Nintendo exclusive. On top of that he would probably be a short range fighter. so ya ;)

    • http://waluigi.com/ Waluigi

      Super Smash Bros needs some WA WA WA!!!

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        Very Funny Waluigi

  • RecheDiazrivarola

    :3

  • Ismael Ototo

    FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for Zelda to be announced as a playable character for a long time now. I knew she was gonna be awesome but I never thought she would look so damn beautiful in HD! I’M IN LOVE. Thank you so much, Nintendo.

  • Madmagican

    Interesting that Sakurai decided to keep Zelda’s TP style rather than adjust to a blonde zelda like we’ve been seeing more and more of recently

  • uPadWatcher

    Princess Zelda’s first pose redefines SEXY… Sora and Namco-Bandai have done an epic job in making Hyrule’s highness looking all that in full HD.

  • Thomas Vienna

    One the one hand, I’m mad that Skyward Sword Zelda isn’t represented here. On the other hand, I know that Skyward Sword Zelda would look terrible in a fighting game. On the other hand, Princess Peach is a character, and she isn’t much of a fighter either… Same goes for the Villager.

    • HungryMetroid

      hopefully we’ll get some alternate skins/ costumes instead of just palette swaps in this game.

    • Yoshi

      I don’t know about you, but I only have two hands…

      • Thomas Vienna

        The first one was my Nintendo Ultra-hand.

  • Kmac

    I think Turok would be dope for Super Smash

  • z. smasher

    i just hope they dont change her like they did from melee to brawl.

  • ETeach

    Hoping for a few alternate design costumes for Zelda this time around. Skyward sword, or at least OOT would be nice.

  • SleepySkullhead

    Zelda uses Darknuts now? Cool, and kinda makes sense because of Spirit Tracks.

  • Logic

    Yes! The zelda from Twilight Princess is making a second return.

  • companyoflosers

    wait, when was there any doubt she would be in it? well regardless, im glad they went with this design over the skyward sword one.

  • JcEp

    She was the one I waiting for. whats with the Soldier? I hope she isnt another character where you control something else, Zelda is awesome enough without all that.

    she was never a damsel in distress type sides in like the 1st game and a few moments in other games.

  • Emily Horton

    Does anybody else REALLY want to see Toon Zelda? I REALLY do!

  • WarioForever


    Something is just wrong with her… I don’t know what.
    Her eyes maybe, or face, or too bright skin?

  • MetroidZero

    Sheik is probably not to far away from being confirmed :D

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Oh my god! Zelda looks so awesome :D. I wonder if this is what she’ll look like in the new Zelda game….it better be! She looks so fantastic. And she has a very Twilight Princess look to her….hmmm….could it be that the new Zelda game is a sequel to Twilight Princess? I’ve heard of a rumor like this before, and the design of her makes it a little more likely. It’s probably a false rumor, but it’s fun to speculate, no?

    Welcome to the Smash!

  • Qubonic

    Peach vs. samus vs. rosalina vs. zelda. The battle of the “Women of nintendo” has begun!!!!
