New footage has been released of Linkle, the female variant of Link. The video is in Japanese, but luckily someone on Reddit translated it. The audio for the gameplay is a bit hard to hear as it focuses mainly on the people critiquing the game.
Towsman: Hey, Linkle!
Townsman: There’s trouble! Apparently Hyrule Castle is being attacked by a demon!
Linkle: What! Really?
Townsman: We’ve received word that even Zelda is engaged in battle but if the demons get to our village…
(Linkle changes clothes and bursts through the door)
Townsman: That outfit is…?
Linkle: I’ve decided! I will defeat this demon!
Linkle: It’s just like my grandmother once told me! I am the reincarnated hero after all!
Townsman: Just because you’ve always liked to pretend to be a hero…
Linkle: Surely this compass passed down from my grandmother is proof that I am a Hero!
Linkle: I will protect the peace in Hyrule!
Linkle was from a small village where she lived leisurely. From the time she was small she has believed that she is the reincarnated hero. One day a rumor had spread to her village that a demon was attacking Hyrule Castle. When Linkle heard this she donned a dashing green outfit.
With the old compass passed down from her grandmother and her special crossbow in hand she set out from the village. Relying on a map and compass, it was Linkle’s aim to reach Hyrule Castle but…soon she found herself lost, wandering around in a forest with a suspicious atmosphere. Then a demon child wearing a mysterious mask appeared and robbed Linkle of her treasured compass. That compass is surely the mark of the hero and she must absolutely get it back. Linkle’s first trial had begun.
Linkle sounds completely awesome, she’s an amazing game character. She didn’t hesitate, quiver in fear, or even flinch at the news that demons where invading the kingdom.
That townsman is a d**k saying, “just because you’ve always liked to pretend to be a hero,” when Linkle said she would go and fight. He’s just waiting for princess Zelda to save the day anyways. While Zelda is off fighting against the demon the townsman is just standing there not running to aid the princess. Instead, he is trying to convince Linkle to chicken out when he’s not man enough to fight himself.
