Smash Bros. Ultimate - Sheik's outfit based on Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Sheikah armor

Fans have figured out what exactly inspired the update to Sheik's outfit in Smash Bros. Ultimate. Turns out the design comes from the Sheikah armor that popped up in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I know that Smash Bros. is known for its tributes to Nintendo's franchises in big and small ways, but seeing stuff like this still impresses me to no end.


I was hoping that Sheik would be replaced by Impa by now. Hopefully they take inspiration from Skyward Sword Impa for Sheik's movement.

Also do we know if Zelda and Sheik are reunited or are they separate still?

Separate still. They had separate slots and Sheik/Zelda still have their down B moves (Bouncing Fish and + Knight)
