Among the slew of new information revealed during today’s long-awaited Nintendo Direct, a few more details about next year’s Hyrule Warriors Legends have been released.

Following gameplay footage of characters Tetra, Toon Link, King of Red Lions and Skull Kid, “Linkle,” a female version of The Legend of Zelda’s green-clad hero, was unveiled as a playable character.

Equipped with dual crossbows, Linkle was shown in a number of clips taking down enemies in multiple directions.

Parallel to her male counterpart’s signature spin attack, Linkle has been given a “spin kick” special, which she shows off in the video.


The Zelda spin-off is expected to drop on March 25, 2016, with a new Nintendo 3DS Home Menu theme included for a limited time.
