The design for Link is taken from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, so his special moves have also been designed a bit differently.
<Side Special Move: Gale Boomerang>
The Gale Boomerang deals damage when thrown at an enemy, but when it comes back, it also lightly pulls the foe’s body.
<Standard Special Move: Hero’s Bow>
The Hero’s Bow! It’s fast.
<Down Special Move: Bomb>
Are these bombs made by Barnes?
<Up Special Move: Spin Attack>
You can charge up the Spin Attack!
All this and the Clawshot, too!
You can use the Clawshot to perform life-saving tether recoveries by aiming at available ledges.
It was difficult to aim in the previous game, but this time it automatically flies to the closest ledge, so it should be pretty simple to use.
Of course, it doesn't mean a thing if it can't reach its target...
