I'd be more excited if toon link was actually cel-shaded. He looks so wrong.

I just wish that they'll give him a proper moveset but considering how this game is rushing to meet next year I won't hold my breath.

I thought he would be cut, but I can't complain, I use him a lot, even though regular Link is cooler. Hopefully though Toon Link will have a different final smash.

Wait

YESSSSSSSS

So happy to see my main from Brawl return! Like many others I expected him to get cut but... YES!

You mean one that differs from Link's? It's kinda hard to do when they play the same in the games as well.
Only item I could see Toon Link using differently would be the Skull Hammer, but what would you replace -- the bombs, bow, or boomerang?

Yeah, true. Basically that's what had made Toon Link different from every other character.
And man, it can't. They're from the same franchise, and well, they could only chage it if Nintendo used their brains a it more xP

Cel-shaded link had a bunch of items that was never used by adult link. He'd have even more if they decided to give him some items from Majora's mask.

Keep normal link as he is and give toon link the grappling hook, deku leaf, skull hammer, minish cap, 4 swords, great spin, etc.

Toon Link has so much to work with to give him a varied moveset. He also should be cel-shaded, it's dumb of Sakurai to not include costumes in order to keep each character looking unique (bogus excuse) and then he turns tails and removes the most important aspect of Toon Links visuals.

Wasn't he the character we all thought was the first to get cut?

Anyway, I didn't mind Toon Link in Brawl, so I welcome him once again in this game.

Lucario on the other hand better get caught.

Not sure if on purpose.

DedValve, I think a Minish Cap/4 Swords Link would be pretty cool, but I don't see them putting many of those moves on a Toon Link based off the Windwaker Link (Master Sword and all that).
Final Smash could be splitting into four Toon Links and doing a hurricane spin or something.

Wow, I didn't think Toon Link would make it back in this game.

Talk about surprising.

Honestly, why would they take any characters OUT of the game? It's like if Dota 2 were to remove some of the original chars and add some new ones. Why not just keep ADDING more? Everyone is concerned that their favorite character from the previous game/s won't be in the newest one, but that shouldn't ever even happen!

What I don't want, though, is for a bunch of characters to have copied movesets, like 90% of them. At least have a LITTLE variation between them. Also, toon Link has always been better than standard Link in SSB's (how embarrassing).

I don't see them changing much simply because they seem to want to stay "true" to the characters. Link gets some cool toys during his adventures but none are quite as iconic as the bomb, boomerange, and bow n' arrow. I don't think they'll do much more than give them different versions. of them. Maybe they'll make cel-shaded Link a costum for him though, like they did for Wario.

It's great to see that Toon Link is back. He was one of my favourite characters in Brawl, so I'd naturally want him to return. Hopefully, though, Toonie gets a new moveset.

Lol Eiche, damn auto correct. I meant to say that I hope Lucario gets cut from the roster.
