This is the last Character Spotlight for 2018. I’m doing it early this month too because we’ll be having some different posts for the end of the year.
Young Link has always been one of my favorite characters. He’s cute and innocent and I’ve always had a soft spot for him. Part of this is because he was always my main character to play as in Super Smash Brothers.
Young Link appears in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask both for the Nintendo 64. Since then, he’s appeared in Super Smash Brothers Melee for the Nintendo Gamecube, Hyrule Warriors for the Nintendo Wii U, and now Super Smash Brothers Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.
I love getting the opportunity to play as Young Link again in the latest Smash Brothers game. Which his attacks are similar to Link’s, just a tad weaker in some ways, I always found him to be a little faster and more efficient with his attacks. This could very well just be me, but that’s how I feel anyway.
I do hope Young Link appears in another main Zelda game at some point. I’d love to play as him again other than just in fighting games. He’s an overall great character and the cute factor definitely works in his favor.
