Link is a very popular character. Unfortunately, we can only play as Link every couple of years as we wait for a new Zelda title to be released. This is why games like Super Smash Bros. is so much fun for the Zelda fan, because they play as Link, in a non-Zelda game, to hold them over while they wait for the next full installment. Link has had several other cameos outside of the Nintendo development studios as well. Final Fantasy and Mario RPG, both Squaresoft games, had a brief cameo, Donkey Kong Country 2 by Rare, and even World of Warcraft each have a small cameo that made every Zelda fan smile. But the greatest cameo of all time for Link was back in 2003.
