Here’s Some Information About Linkle In Hyrule Warriors Legends

linkle_hyrule_warriors_legends

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.

      1. Exactly. I’m fine if companies decide to make a new side series of something including a main female character that is based off of a pre-existing character as long as they don’t completely replace the original. Like when Marvel decided that comic book Thor is now a woman.

          Ah yes. He died, lost his powers, etc reasoning for giving his name/mantle to a new character. I’m okay with that as long as the beginning of the story has you play Link up til he gets killed & his sister, who shares his bloodline, gets the Triforce of Courage passed to her because Link didn’t have any children of his own to pass his piece to, or his spirit altogether.

    1. Of course. It shows her as plain as day in that last Zelda U video they showed during the direct. You can tell by her face, the hair that comes down the sides of her face, just like her picture above. Also in previous videos Links legs were longer and slimmer. The girl on the horse has short, thick legs.

      I’m 100% convinced that Linkle, or a girl version of Link will be in Zelda U. Simply because she has already been revealed in that last video, but most people are too stubborn to admit it.

        Why are you so adamant about that Link being a female? Is the idea of a guy with some feminine features troubling you or something?

        1. See, this is where a lot of people misunderstand me. I don’t want Link to be a female. I’m positive that was a male Link in the earlier videos Nintendo showed off. I’m just saying there will be an option to choose a male or female version of Link at the beginning of the game, probably during the file selection. I believe this because that was the female Link in that last video.

          I’m still going to choose the male Link, if the option does in fact exist.

        2. And no, link appearing female, or having feminine features does not bother me one bit. If in fact I’m wrong, it’s cool.

          I’m just telling you what I see in that last video, and from what I see Nintendo will allow a female Link option in the next Zelda game.

    2. I still stand by her being a decendent of Ayrll (Link’s sister) A female Link (bursts into histerics) What Nonsense Link as a girl!

    “The game includes a storyline chapter (exclusive to the 3DS version)…” Well that little part has me really pissed! If this is true, fuck you, Nintendo & Koei Tecmo but mainly Nintendo! Why stop at Smash 4 & Hyrule Warriors!? Let’s put every single Wii U exclusive on the 3DS! That will definitely save the Wii Fail U, Ninten

    Talk about getting shit on, eh. “Oh you supported a Wii U by buying Hyrule Warriors? Well here’s the same game but with some additions to story & playable character roster… EXCLUSIVELY ON THE 3DS!! Oh & if you want the characters on the Wii U version, you HAVE TO BUY the 3DS version! Thanks for your support, suckers! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!” <.<

        1. Nobody was talking to you and I was asking him a question and that isn’t a crime and I want to know if he expects a lot from Nintendo or what because he is obviously disappointed in them a lot and does he have a system to satisfy or partially satisfy his gaming needs because nintendont and we all know Nintendo is far behind the competition in too many ways to count

          1. “Nobody was talking to you and I was asking him a question”
            It’s the internet, anyone can jump in as they please, you do it.

            “Nintendo is far behind the competition in too many ways to count.”
            And this is why they need to listen to their fans, so they need to listen to their fans. So they aren’t pissing them of with bad practices such as this.

    1. And the 3DS version has many (non-graphical) improvements too. Like being able to switch between captains mid-battle. Don’t forget that it’s $20 cheaper too, and it comes with all DLC aside from the Boss Pack. So apparently, $80 (game plus DLC) = $40 with many new things. 1.5 years later. Okay. I understand price drops, but this isn’t a price drop: it’s a new product. This is neglect for the consumer and a bad business practice in general, imo. Then again, this is Koei Tecmo, so no surprise.

    2. Omg stfu its either you get the game or not, im buying it no complaints here its just $40 , if u have a problem with it just don’t buy it, speak with your wallet don’t bitch in the comment section like Nintendo is going to read it and change their minds…

      1. people still ask for Bayonetta ports, That’s the internet, and it isn’t a crime.

        People who have a wiiu and not a 3ds deserve to voice their opinions. Wiiu doesn’t have a constant stream of game like 3ds, we have only a few good exclusives nintindo gives us. Compare the games on 3ds to the ones on it. 3rd party left Nintendo is all wii u has left and they are focusing more on 3ds and giving us unfinished games, Mario tennis, Mario party, kart (battle mode). Nintendo isn’t helping make the wii u decent when they are making the wii u lose its appeal.

      2. But if you boycott the game how Will Nintendo know why they lot that sale?

        Let’s say 1,000’s of people boycott the game but never speak up on why they decided not to buy the game, wouldn’t that just mean that people just aren’t interested in the game overall?

        1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3 ~*Proud Owner of the great PS4 & the great n3DS! Oh & I guess the dying mediocre Wii U is okay, too!*~ says:

          Exctly. I hate this “quit complaining & just vote with your wallet” bullshit. Not buying the product is well & dandy but you also have to speak up as to WHY you didn’t buy the product. Otherwise, like you said, Nintendo, or any company for that matter, will just assume we didn’t have any interest to begin with.

      3. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3 ~*Proud Owner of the great PS4 & the great n3DS! Oh & I guess the dying mediocre Wii U is okay, too!*~ says:

        You obviously didn’t buy the Wii U version so your opinion is irrelevant to mine because you don’t know how I feel about being practically ripped off.

  2. I’m glad she isn’t canon. You don’t need a female character for everything. A story doesn’t become better just because the main character is a girl.

    1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3 ~*Proud Owner of the great PS4 & the great n3DS! Oh & I guess the dying mediocre Wii U is okay, too!*~ says:

      Least not yet. :/ I just hope if she does become canon that she’s given a better name. Imagine if Aryll, Link’s sister in Wind Waker, was named Linkle… Bleh..! *shudder*

  3. I really hate seeing new, improved and/or completely odd things in this 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors. Because I wasn’t planning on buying it. I usually hate handheld versions of console games. Like Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. Though I didn’t play that long enough to be so harsh.

  4. Not a fan of her character design. Looks kinda… bland. But hey, Hyrule Warriors is pretty bland too, so I guess it’s fitting.

    I am totally supportive of a female Link though. I just don’t like what I’ve seen of her.

    I honestly wouldn’t mind seeing Linkle in other spin-offs. I think she’s pretty cool.

    1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3 ~*Proud Owner of the great PS4 & the great n3DS! Oh & I guess the dying mediocre Wii U is okay, too!*~ says:

      Oh dear. Hollow’s found a new waifu, everyone! xP lol

  6. How can she hold two crossbows? The usage of a single crossbow requires 2 hands. How does she reload!!?? MAGIC!?

    It’s driving me mad.
