For what seems like months now, Zelda fans have been wondering why Skull Kid wasn’t a playable character in Hyrule Warriors. With everyone from Zant to Tingle to even the King of Red Lions getting announced as playable before him. it seemed like Nintendo and Koei Tecmo were doing everything in the power to deliberately deny him a spot on the roster.
But now, it seems like things have finally changed. Yes, Skull Kid has officially been announced as a playable character in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS, with him likely also being released as paid DLC for the Wii U version of the game.
Above: Skull Kid is now playable in Hyrule Warriors Legends.
What’s more, he’ll use an ocarina during battle and have a fairy at his side, kind of like Link in the Nintendo 64 era titles. Nothing has been specified about whether he can bring the moon down on enemies though…
Additionally, Phantom Ganon will be a boss.
What do you think about Skull Kid’s presence in Hyrule Warriors Legends? Are you finally glad he’s made the jump from being an assist character to a fully fledged player one? And what moves do you hope he has in the new title?
