- A Mod for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda, here's a skin that recreates Link's appearance from 1986! Included are 8 costumes, some item changes, and edited sound effects.
This project initially started out as a Wii U mod, but I've revamped it from the ground-up for Smash Bros. Ultimate, thanks to Young Link's inclusion. Special shout out goes to Nanobuds for rigging him; I wouldn't have been able to make the anniversary date without his work!
There have been a lot of illustrations done for Zelda 1, but this model's specifically based off one by Hideaki Itoh. Some additional inspiration was also taken from Breath of the Wild's Zelda 1 items.
Lastly, the Spirit Battle for him is also updated! If you install this mod, I recommend giving this Spirit a rematch; think of it like the Sephiroth Challenge, if you want.
MSBT is for version 13.0. Alt numbering is as follows: c00 - Green c01 - Red c02 - Blue c03 - Gold c04 - Cyan c05 - Beige c06 - Takamaru c07 - Shadow Link
