During the Nintendo Direct on 12/11/15, we got some new details about the upcoming 3DS title Hyrule Warriors Legends. As well as a release date of March 25th 2016 via retail and the Nintendo eShop, we even got a new female character named Linkle announced as a playable character!
Linkle, while appearing as a female version of Link, is a separate character that has been introduced into Hyrule Warriors Legends. In the Nintendo Direct reveal, she was shown using dual crossbows to battle enemies. Also, she has a spin kick attack that could be seen as a variant of the sword spin attack Link uses.
Furthermore, the game will come in a Limited Edition, which includes a compass that Linkle wears in the game!
Hyrule Warriors Legends is a reimagining of the Wii U title Hyrule Warriors. Check out our review of that game here!
