Linkle is a female version of the character Link from the Nintendo video game franchise The Legend of Zelda that will be introduced as a playable character in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Hyrule Warriors Legends set for release in March 2016.
In August 2014, an art book supplement for the game Hyrule Warriors was released, which featured a female version of Link named "Linkle" (リンクル or "Rinkuru" in Japanese). Following its release, a photograph of the Linkle illustration was widely circulated online.
On November 12th, 2015, the Nintendo of America Twitter feed posted images of a new female version of Link as a playable character in the upcoming game Hyrule Warriors Legends, who wields crossbows rather than the sword of her male counterpart (shown below). Within 24 hours, the tweet gathered upwards of 10,500 favorites and 9,700 retweets.
The same day, the women's geek culture blog The Mary Sue published an article about the Linkle character. Meanwhile, the GameXplain YouTube channel posted gameplay footage of Linkle in Hyrule Warriors Legends (shown below).
