Super Smash Bros 4 Pic Features Link Wearing Skyward Sword Outfit

The latest Super Smash Bros 4 pic features Link wearing an outfit he might be seen wearing in Skyward Sword.

"Here's Link in an outfit based on his ordinary clothes in Skyward Sword! The art style looks a little different, but the actual clothing model is still his usual tunic," wrote the game's director Masahiro Sakurai in the MiiVerse post.

The picture features the Wii U version of the game and can be seen here.

Yesterday's pic was a bit strange as it featured Rosalina approaching what looks like an 8-bit princess and a fairy resting in a garden of trees and flowers.

"Is this a match made in heaven? Remember, no matter how big you may be, there is always someone bigger," said Sakurai.  

The Wii U should receive a significant boost from the release of Super Smash Bros. 4. Mario Kart 8 increased sales of the console by a high percentage proving that more Nintendo exclusives will help the ailing console.

The new Smash Bros. games will launch for both the Wii U and 3DS later this year.

Nintendo confirmed to IGN last month that the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros will launch sometime in the summer this year. Wii U fans will have to wait until the winter to get their hands on this epic fighting title.

Sakurai discussed how multiplayer will work in the game with IGN. He stated that players can play online with friends and can also engage in a handful of different multiplayer modes. There will be two distinct forms for multiplayer including "For Fun" and "For Glory."

For Fun only records players wins, and pits opponents against each other in random stages that include all items. For Glory levels the playing field by removing items and setting every match on a Final Destination version of certain levels. Wins and Losses will be tracked in For Glory.
