During last night's Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that "Linkle," a playable female version of The Legend of Zelda's hero Link, would be coming to Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Rather than a sword, Linkle will carry two crossbows and is able to perform a spin kick attack (similar to Link's sword spin attack).

Other playable characters were also confirmed in the broadcast including Skull Kid, Toon Link, Tetra, and The King of Hyrule.

Finally, it was announced that Hyrule Warriors Legends will be coming out for 3DS in North America on March 25th 2016.
