In an email interview with IGN, Eiji Aonuma talked more about the creation of the new Hyrule Warriors Legends addition, Linkle, and advised that he was able to give feedback on the creation of her character during the development process.
“I had a chance to give feedback on Linkle during development, but the satisfying action of using a crossbow, which we developed for the spinoff title Link’s Crossbow Training, was implemented this time completely by Koei Tecmo. It may feel a little different from other titles in the franchise, but she doesn’t feel out of place at all in the world of the Zelda games.”
He also told IGN, when speaking about her potential apperance in future games, “I’m sure we will keep her in mind when thinking about future titles.”
It will be interesting to see how she is integrated into future titles if this were to happen. What do you think about potentially seeing more of Linkle in the future?
