In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the character of Sheik seems to be sporting a new design that matches neither Ocarina of Time nor Hyrule Warriors.

What (if any) prior appearance is this version based on? If no previous media has sported this design, what is the new design based upon?

Sheik in the new costume design.

It's a design based on one of the costumes in Breath of the Wild. From the official Super Smash Bros blog:

Now Sheik joins the battle wearing the Sheikah costume from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


Like said, Sheik is just wearing items you can collect in Zelda Breath of the Wild. The outfit is a clothing item you can buy in Kakariko Village, and the headpiece is an item you can get from the Sheik amiibo.
