Shouldn't we consider BOTW Link a Newcomer? He does have a somewhat different move set.

    That's the thing, he isn't much different than
    -lack of clawshot
    -remote bombs
    -no tornado boomerang

    And he has a nifty Fsmash at 0%? It's just a couple small changes in his moveset (albeit they make a big difference). You wouldn't really call Ganon a newcomer because he takes out the sword on a couple smash attacks. BotW Link is not that different from TP Link, nor is Zelda or Ganon other than aesthetically.

    BotW Link also already has his tunic as well (though it's missing the undersleeves I suppose), and Young Link is already similar enough for us to not need another Link in my opinion.

    I feel like yes, Link's strategy might be a little different from previous games in the fact that he can not only zone but set traps like Snake (and going in after trapping with those grabs will be important), but overall none of his tilts, aerials, or smashes are changed, and those are largel...

    Characters always change from game to game,Fox in Melee plays nothing like Smash 4 Fox,so I wouldn't consider BOTW Link a new character,it's just an update to Link's character
