I don’t know about you but these figures are quickly becoming some of my most anticipated releases! Good Smile Company is teasing us some more with final promo shots of Twilight Princess Link and Zelda and they have also announced a release date. What is an even bigger surprise is that Link is coming in two versions! There will be a regular version and a DX version that comes with extra accessories (see the pictures below for more details on them). Princess Zelda and Link 6000 yen ($59) and 5500 yen ($54) respectively. The DX version of Link costs 6480 yen ($64). Link and Zelda are scheduled for release in May 2017 and are up for pre-order on Good Smile Company and other Japanese retailer’s sites like amiami.com. Keep in mind that some figures do get pushed back by Good Smile as the release date approaches and that could certainly happen here. It is ambitious for them to release these figures together but it makes sense since many people will want to put Link and Zelda next to each other for their displays.
While we have seen images of Link and Zelda before, it is nice to get an idea of what accessories they have and some of the posing options as well. Zelda has some really nice sculpted details and both of her weapons look excellent! She does not look like the most dynamic figure however so that could be disappointing to some. Link’s poses do look dynamic however and Good Smile really nails the style of Twilight Princess with this figure. While the base version of Link looks great, the DX version with extra accessories looks even more awesome! I don’t know if the accessories are quite as cool as Link to the Past but I’m very tempted by this DX Link and will probably pick it up since Twilight Princess is my second favorite Zelda game. Good Smile is on a roll with Nintendo figures and it will be exciting to see where they go from here.
What are you thoughts on Link and Zelda? Will you be getting the regular or DX version of Link? Let us know in the comments below!
