Back in 2014, an artbook was released for Hyrule Warriors, and it included concept art for a female version of Link. The news caused quite a buzz in the video game community, and the fan response was strong enough that Nintendo decided to add her into Hyrule Warriors Legends, officially making her a new character with her own backstory and naming her Linkle.
Fans will finally be able to play as Linkle when
Hyrule Warriors Legends launches on Nintendo 3DS in March. The game is available right now in Japan, and video footage of Linkle’s intro and winning pose has surfaced on YouTube. You can check it out by clicking above!
