You know what? I call myself a Legend of Zelda fan and I didn't even know there was a female version of one of the most iconic video games characters of all time. But the rumors are true, there totally is and she looks so badass!
Previously revealed last year in a Hyrule Warriors Wii U artbook which has character designs for the cast of Warriors, amongst other unseen & rejected characters, Linkle is set to be one of the five new playable characters in Koei Tecmo's impending 3DS edition of Hyrule Warriors.
Check out some footage of Linkle in action, below:
The existence of the dual crossbow wielding badass has been speculated for some time now, since a crossbow was seen in a leaked trailer for Hyrule Warriors Legends back in July. But this is massive news, and quite the deviation from form on Nintendo's part.
Joining Linkle in Hyrule Warriors Legends will be Wind Waker's Toon Link, the King of Hyrule, the legend that is Tetra, the pirate incarnation of Zelda, and the villainous Skull Kid from Majora's Mask.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will launch March 25th, 2016.
