A Closer Look at Link’s Smash for Wii U Model and Why it Shouldn’t be Similar to Zelda U’s Art-Style

ZI writes: Yeah, we’re going on some recent ground for this topic. With the announcement of Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS, many were quick to notice Link’s "new" design, which many suspect is similar to how his design in his latest outing will look. Truth be told it’s not a new design, not even in the slightest. It is in fact Twilight Princess Link’s design but with "a bright color palette," which in all actuality is just a simple and flat color with slightly different hues in certain spots, mainly folds or stitches.

I think this is going to be the next Link for the new Zelda, kinda of realistic but cartoonish at the same time. Also this is not the Link from TP, if you have seen the tech demo you'll know thats how the Link from TP should actually look.

Nintendo did say they wanted to have a realistic cartoony Link for the next Zelda. I think the Link Zelda U will look similar or the same as the smash bros. model

The link model will be not far off the finished model in smash bros as this is not finished visuals,as my other comment will show u a link that proves this,so going off an unfinished link model in smash ??? in fact here is the link listen at the 4 min 24 mark.

The TP artstyle fit Zelda perfectly.

twilight princess was borderline boring thanks to the generic dark art style, especially when it came to facial expressions, skyward sword is literally the best style if the characters don't talk due to the fact that they are able to create many more expressive faces with an extremely stylized art style, as with all situations like this, for example, many prefer scott pilgrim the comic over the film because of its cartoony art style allowing for WAY better characters, realistic fantasy is the worst type of fantasy for the zelda series, why would i want a dark grey brown color palette when i can have environments like this in HD

Smash bros games models don't always reflect the models from the actual games. They take way less detail.
