More fan favorites join the battle! Today’s Nintendo Direct – Sakurai announced that Sheik, Zero Suit Samus and Yoshi. You can check out all the new screenshots below.

Firstly, Yoshi has been given a makeover – with his model reflecting the more recent titles. For starters Yoshi is more upright in his stance, and Sakurai did mention that Yoshi will be getting a boost in power.

 

Sheik also makes a welcome return. This time around she will be fighting alone – now a separate character from Princess Zelda – as such she gets a few new moves like her new grenades (very similar to Snake).

Finally, Zero Suit Samus has got a new pair of boots – rectifying her previous downfall of being too weak to KO. She looks kick ass – and she certainly is equipped to do so.
