Hyrule Warriors Legends: Linkle & The Wind Waker Inclusion

Now there is this interview with Hayashi about Hyrule Warriors Legends, check it out. On the one hand he confirms that there will be at least one more character and I'm placing my money on Linkle. It would be awesome to have her, I love the design.

Her weapon was also shown in the trailer and she was a fan favorite, when Koei asked for new characters on Twitter, so I think she's a good bet.

Also, The Wind Waker is getting its own epilogue story, which takes place after the events of Hyrule Warriors. They acknowledged that the art style and the world of the Wind Waker clashes with the other games, so they gave it its own part.

I personally think that they could have tried giving the Wind Waker a more realistic look and style. Originally I was also hoping that they would make their own version of the King of Hyrule in the next game, who combines traits of Gaepora (Zelda's father in Skyward Sword) and Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule. The Sail / Boat could still be one of his weapons. But... on the other hand they also featured Fi and Midna straight from their games, so it's only natural that they would include the Red King of Lions, who was Link's companion in the Wind Waker, in his original version.

I'm still not all too happy about this mix, I liked Hyrule Warriors the most, when it all looked very cohesive and they had their own designs for everyone. Tingle then blew things out of proportion and now it's just a mess, where they could throw anything into the mix. But at least it really serves the purpose of an All-Star Zelda game.
