Nintendo has released a statement saying that the new character for the 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors, Linkle, will also be playable for the Wii U version, and will have her own story mode missions. Pictures released by Nintendo show a storybook styled Linkle interacting will Skull Kid and Midna.
Whether or not these story mode missions will be Linkle’s backstory and history is unclear, although other screenshots released tease at that idea, showing Linkle with a map, running away from what looks very similar to Hyrule Castle, so maybe we will get to know this mysterious crossbow-wielding a little better.
A few screenshots have been released about other newly-announced characters such as Skull Kid and the King of Red Lions.
