The latest issue of the Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has revealed that Toon Link will be a playable character in Hyrule Warriors Legends for the Nintendo 3DS. While the character won’t be available in the game’s traditional Legend Mode, he will be playable in the abundance of other modes found within Hyrule Warriors Legends. Because of the connectivity between Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends, he will also be able to be transferred to the Wii U version of the game.
Toon Link joins a slew of Wind Waker characters that are set to appear in Hyrule Warriors Legends, including the formerly announced Tetra and King of Red Lions, as well as the Helmaroc King, who Famitsu revealed would appear in some capacity in the game.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will be released this spring for the 3DS.
