Smash Bros Ultimate looks set to be the biggest entry in the series yet. Not only are there 74 fighters to duke it out with, there’s also a brand new single-player mode and Spirits system to contend with. As with any new Smash game, it’s important that you study up on your character of choice, as there will likely be a few changes to how they handle. To help you ease into the new fighting style and systems, we’ve been busy putting together character guides for all of the fighters. In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Young Link Guide, we’ll be outlining everything we know about Young Link. We’ll go over the changes from the last game, highlight some moves, take a look at the Young Link Alternate Costumes, and then see what his Final Smash is this time around.
Be sure to check out our ever growing list of character breakdowns at our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Characters Guide. It has individual breakdowns for each character, and we’re adding more and more in the run up to launch day. Check back regularly to see if your favorite character has been covered.
