Toon Link to be playable in Hyrule Warriors Legends

Japan’s Weekly Famitsu has revealed that Toon Link will be playable in Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Announced within E3 2015’s Nintendo Digital Event, it was already confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS version would add Tetra and the King of Hyrule as additional playable characters.

Each are plucked from GameCube’s The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, which was later remastered for Wii U and saw release in 2013.

There will also be a new ‘Wind Waker’ story in Legend Mode, in which it was shown that A Link to the Past’s Helmasaur King boss will appear. However, Toon Link won’t be playable in such mode.

Hyrule Warriors Legends will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in spring 2016.
