    Nintendo’s always been a tight-lipped company, but even for them, the silence around the next Legend of Zelda game has been on par with Link’s — the company has offered next to no details about the upcoming game since first showing it off at E3 2014.

    Hyrule Warriors Hits the 3DS With a Female Version of Link

    When it comes to canon, Hyrule Warriors gets a big ol’ asterisk in the Zelda universe because it wasn’t solely developed by Nintendo — in a way, it’s more a part of co-developer Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors series than The Legend of Zelda.
