"Just like Link, Zelda’s design has also changed. She has a slightly more subdued color scheme. Her movement capabilities are not that good, but her magic adds power to her physical attacks. There’s a reason why her hands and feet glow, after all."
So then, I didn't see that one coming... however, when will Nintendo announce Sonic as a playable character?! The game is looking really complete now, release date announced at E3? I'd bet on it.
