Linkle cover

Hyrule Warriors Legends, the spin-off 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors, will have a female version of Link added to the playable cast. Named Linkle, this new character will appear alongside other famous Zelda characters. Hit the jump for more.

Besides Linkle, who does battle while dual-wielding rapid-fire crossbows, three characters from The Wind Waker will be playable, namely Toon Link, Tetra, and the King of Hyrule. Also joining the roster is Skullkid, the creepy mask-wearing character from Majora’s Mask. And given Nintendo’s eager push for world domination through Amiibo, it’s only a matter of time before Linkle gets a tie-in figure.

Hyrule Warriors Legends is exclusive to Nintendo 3DS, and will be hitting the system on March 25th, 2016.
