This month, Nintendo surprised many gamers by announcing that there will be a new character joining the Hyrule Warriors lineup. Her name is Linkle, and she immediately captured our hearts. But just who is she?
This isn't the first we've heard of Linkle (although it is the first time we've seen her in action). Last year pictures of a "girl version of hero Link" were released in a book featuring the art of Hyrule Warriors. The book states that she was designed to be kind of like a little sister to Link, but it doesn't explicitly state that she is his little sister.
Hyrule Warriors Legends wil also feature the King of Hyrule (AKA Daphnes Johansen Hyrule) as a playable character. He's another familiar face from The Wind Waker. Early in-game footage shows him transforming into a boat and summoning waves to attack his enemies.
You'll also be able to play as Skull Kid! We saw his character in the first Hyrule Warriors game, but Legends is the first time he'll be a playable character. He uses Majora's Mask for some attacks, as well as the Puppets from Twilight Princess.
