One of the more interesting announcements we have had lately is the inclusion of Linkle in Hyrule Warriors Legends on the Nintendo 3DS. The latest edition of Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has some information regarding the character which is seen as a female Link. Linkle initially came to be as a proof-of-concept female Link which fans have been clamouring for for quite some time.
The game includes a storyline chapter (exclusive to the 3DS version) where we see Linkle on her way to Hyrule Castle, using an ancient compass that’s been passed down generations. She’s described as a “bright and free-spirited young girl,” that wanders about and save those who need a little bit of help.
Using a pair of crossbows, Linkle can attack in the air or whilst on the move, dealing deadly damage through melee attacks and a heaped helping of bomb arrows.
