Sheik confirmed for Smash Bros

Jan 16, 2008

Sheik, Zelda's alter ego in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, has been confirmed as a playable character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zelda can transform into Sheik by triggering her down move. With Needle Storm, Chain and Vanish powers, she sounds like she can hold her own, although we have no idea what any of them do.

Thescreenshotsof the Smash Bros. version make Sheik look fairly feminine, but apparently Link still hasn’t caught on to Zelda’s cross-dressing act and crazy fans still debate about whether or not the princess is making a wardrobe swap or a complete gender switch during her transformation.

By the way, Nintendo, this totally doesn't make up for thelatest Brawl delay.
