Perhaps stretching the definition of the word "news," Nintendo has confirmed that Link's cartoon iteration will star in the next Super Smash Bros. title. There he is, look. Considering that The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker is one of Nintendo's major Wii U releases this year, his inclusion isn't hugely surprising.
The confirmed roster currently stands as Mario, Bowser, Link, Samus, Donkey Kong, Fox, Kirby, Pikachu, Peach, Luigi, Kid Icarus' Pit and Captain Olimar, alongside new additions like Mega Man, the Animal Crossing Villager and Wii Fit's Trainer. Super Smash Bros. is out next year on Wii U and 3DS.
