Her 'Hilda' costume doesn't actually have the same colours as Hilda. Are we gonna get Hilda as an echo character???

I for one welcome my new Zelda waifu overlord.

I think she's going to take over my life.


How can you resist?
Well, I'll be joining on the same stance as you now. She's irresistible!

I think it's such a fresh breath of air to other Zeldas who kind of felt a lot ways serious, brooding or rather brash. This one's such a big bowl of sunshine it's making me want to adopt her!

*INCOHERENT SCREAMS OF HAPPINESS*

OH MY GOD SHE'S GORGEOUS!!

*ahem* Sorry I'll compose myself ^^;

Wow, I was not expecting ALBW for her design. I was so sure it would be BOTW, but I never knew how much I wanted this look for Zelda until I saw it today.
And reading the changes to her makes me so happy! AAAAAH MY MAIN IS BETTER THAN EVER!!!

*goes back to happily flailing about*

- Drifing with Farore's Wind
- No free fall from Din's Fire + air dodging is insanely punishable this time so Din's Fire landing traps will be even better
- You can move during Phantom Slash
- Completely new character design
- Invitational tournament forced people to use 3 different characters and she still didn't get picked.
Can't win them all I guess :happysheep:

It'll make it feel even better if she's actually decent upon release. Keep fighting the good fight.

Getting back into Smash partially because of this character. Loved playing her in Melee and I'm beyond excited to see the new information roll out over the coming hours.

Her air speed & ground speed look significantly faster in what footage I've seen, but a lot of the game has little just sped up so I'm not sure how to take that.

she didnt get picked because shes bad again lol
Don't rain on these girls' parade just yet Aero, let them fly high with their dreams so that their fall will be harder and more soul crushing.

Wow, the new look for SWF is awful. It's been so long since I've been here...

So we got completely sidewinded. Her moves are all updated, new animations. Jab is faster. Dash is much faster. Dins is faster.
oh my GOD I did not see this coming. I'm very happy with it though, Link Between Worlds is a fantastic Zelda design.

I did exactly the same thing. I was like "pick Zelda, pick Zelda, she's right there and brand new, pick her" and they did but did nothing but dash attack the entire game. The Goddess Spells are clearly back, though they didn't show off down B, and I saw bair lightning kick but they didn't do fair.
i was cussing bill trinnen out. I was screaming for that fellow queer to pick our queen

It's been a long time since I did one of these... Right before the release of smash 4 in fact. I was bored and had nothing better to do though! The other skins will be coming soon enough now that the first one is done it's all a matter of changing the layer hues and such. Coloring around the bottom of the dress took forever.

I adore this design change, I really love what they did with the Zelda cast, Zelda and Ganondorf especially. Absolutely beautiful.I was pretty tired of TP Zelda and it's great to have as a blonde again which I prefer. Does anyone have any height comparisons though? Is she shorter?

Your guess is as good as mine
NO FREE FALL ON DIN'S FIRE HELLO ????¿¿¿¿
Hold up, no free fall? You don't just throw that out there about Din's Fire without a source. This is necessary breakthrough information here, I need to know if it's legit. I know Sheik's grenade no longer has free fall but if Sakurai graced our queen with the same buff I will ascend to the heavens

As long as I have purple to match my now fully mobile phantom knight, I’m good.
I cried. I remember picking Zelda when I was 9 at a Walmart demo. I remember pretending to be her. Lol she rooted my love of mages, a smart woman who can hold her own. She feels like she’s been fully realized as a character now. She has her own indentity.
I’m sure we will see BOTW costumes to match Link.

They're lying to you in an attempt to make people think Zelda will be meta at some point.

LYING.
Misleading about Din's Fire, way to kick a girl while she's down.

It's good though, 3 people mentioned it on twitter including Nairo, so...

Took em long enough.

Edit: YOOOOOOO
THEY DID MY GIRL GOOD.
