When Linkle was first introduced into the Zelda world with the release of Hyrule Warriors Legends, she ended up becoming a hot topic of conversation among many fans. Due to her popularity, Eiji Aonuma is even considering the possibility of Linkle being included in future Zelda games. This is exciting, because while I was playing Hyrule Warriors Legends, Linkle quickly grew to be one of my favorite additions from the previous Hyrule Warriors game on the Wii U.
Zelda Universe has also recently released Act 5 of Hyrule Warriors – The Movie, which is titled “Linkle’s Tale“. The installment follows Linkle’s riveting journey as she sets out to save Hyrule Castle when her village is notified that the castle is under attack by monsters. This is why I have chosen this beautiful piece of Linkle artwork by Kurama-chan on Deviantart for our Fanart Friday this week.
This artwork is absolutely captivating due to the amount of details that have been illustrated into this piece. Linkle’s eyes especially have a glossy appearance that enchant the viewer and truly bring her lively characteristics to life. Not only that, but Linkle is also seen wearing her necklace that includes a small blue Rupee near her collarbones. The artwork as a whole make the viewer think about the different ways that Linkle would be drawn if she was included in future Zelda games. This adventurous village girl makes a great first impression in Hyrule Warriors Legends, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this daring heroine.
