Linkle, the female version of hero Link from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda series, will make her debut in Hyrule Warriors Legends for the Nintendo 3DS, but she may not stop there.
Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma hinted to IGN that Linkle is on the table for use in other Zelda games.
“I'm sure we will keep her in mind when thinking about future titles,” Aonuma said.
Revealed during last month’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Linkle dual wields crossbows in battle.
“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,” Aonuma said.
“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.”
Hyrule Warriors Legends releases for the 3DS in North America on March 25, 2016.
