Yes, the whole Linkle thing is really happening and a female version of Link will be playable for the new Hyrule Warriors Legends game for the 3DS. If the first look wasn’t extensive enough for you then I’ve got you covered, as a new video has been released that shows a bit more of the more feminine Link.
As for how Linkle stands out from Link, she is a more nimble character and utilizes two crossbows. She doesn’t hit as hard as her male counterpart, but speed players will definitely have a lot more fun playing as her. She joins Skull Kid, Tetra and the King of Red Lions as new characters being added to the Hyrule Warriors roster.
Hyrule Warriors Legends launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on January 21st, 2016. An official release date for the USA version of the game has not been disclosed as of the publication of this article.
Hyrule Warriors Legends features plenty of good guys to control, but there’s also some baddies thrown into the mix for good measure. For example: this new trailer shows off the series’ most iconic bad guy, Ganondorf, absolutely demolishing everything in his path.
He seems to control very similarly as he did in last year’s Hyrule Warriors for Wii U, being a bit slow but making up for it with a huge attack range and tons of raw power. It might not feel morally right controlling Ganondorf, but once you’ve tasted the power it’s hard to resist!
Hyrule Warriors Legends launches exclusively for the 3DS on March 25th, 2016.
There were rumors swirling around a while ago regarding a female Link being added to Hyrule Warriors Legends, and now we know those rumors are true as Nintendo has revealed Linkle.
You read that correctly: her name is actually Linkle. She basically looks like Zelda in Link-ish attire and wields dual crossbows.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will be making its way to the Nintendo 3DS, but when it does it may have some limitations depending on which version of the system you are playing it on. If you’re interested in playing the game in 3D, then your only option to do that will be by playing on the New Nintendo 3DS.
This information was revealed by 4Gamer before it was translated by Perfectly Nintendo. It was taken from an interview with the producer of Hyrule Warriors Legends, Yosuke Hayashi.
While this restriction will be a bummer for anybody who doesn’t have a New 3DS (psst… ME), fans will be glad to know that everything else will be the same regardless of what you play on. DLC codes for unlocking Toon Link, Tetra and the King of Hyrule for Wii U’s Hyrule Warriors will come packaged in all versions of Hyrule Warriors Legends, while Amiibo support was also revealed.
Hyrule Warriors Legends is set to launch exclusively for the 3DS and will launch in the first half of 2016.
The Wii U’s hit hack ‘n’ slash game Hyrule Warriors is getting a re-release on the 3DS called Hyrule Warriors Legends, and now we know when the Japanese version of the game will drop. The game will release on January 21st in Japan, though a Western release is still slated as Spring 2016.
Hyrule Warriors Legends got a brand new trailer at Tokyo Game Show 2015, which showed off all of the new content that will be coming with the game. Expect things like new characters, weapons and locations to duke it out in, but most of what you remember from the Wii U version will remain.

A victim to leaks prior to E3, fans already new that Hyrule Warriors would be making its way to the 3DS soon. Now, we know it for certain, as Hyrule Warriors Legends was officially announced during Nintendo’s E3 digital event.
As for what this game will bring to the table, it’s set to have all of the DLC that was included in the Wii U Hyrule Warriors, as well as characters from The Wind Waker. Other than that, this looks to be a very similar beast to the console counterpart.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will launch for the 3DS in the first quarter of 2016. Check out the trailer below.
