- "With portals opened to other dimensions, another Link slipped through – the legendary Hero of Winds from the Era of the Great Sea. While trying to save his kidnapped sister, he challenged the ruler of evil. Helped by a red boat and a pirate crew, and controlling the wind, he traveled far and wide across the Great Sea. Quick on his feet and light in the air, Toon Link excels at speedy combos with his short sword and trusty Deku Leaf. He may be small, but he packs a punch!"
