Toon Link, based on the cel-shaded character from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, made his Smash Bros. debut in 2008's Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

His move-set for the new Super Smash Bros. game was not detailed. An image of Toon Link on the website shows him wielding the familiar wind-controlling baton.

Toon Link joins previously confirmed series mainstays like Princess Peach, Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Link, and Samus, as well as newcomers Mega-Man, Wii Fit Trainer, and Villager.

Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS areexpected to launch in 2014. There will be no cross-platform play between the two.
