Hyrule Warriors Legends adds playable Skull Kid

Phantom Ganon to appear as boss character.

Skull Kid

Skull Kid, who first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, will be playable in Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS, the latest issue of Famitsu reveals. His weapon is an ocarina, and he battles in cooperation with a fairy.

Given that all characters from Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS will be playable in Hyrule Warriors for Wii U if you own both copies of the game, Skull Kid should be coming to the Wii U release, as well.

Additionally, Famitsu also reveals that Phantom Ganon will appear as a boss character.

Hyrule Warriors Legends will launch for 3DS in Japan on January 21, and in North America and Europe in Q1 2016.
