Marin from Link's Awakening

Never thought I’d see the day…

The Nintendo of America Twitter account has offered some exciting news to Hyrule Warriors fans. Nintendo has continued to roll out content for both the Wii U version and the recently-released 3DS port Hyrule Warriors Legends and will continue to do so throughout the year. The second DLC pack will include a character most would have never expected to make another appearance in a Zelda game (spinoffs included) since she’s been gone from the franchise since 1993 (or 1998 with the DX version): Marin from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

Marin is a very significant character in the Game Boy title, and could even be considered a love interest for Link in the original game as she reminds Link of Zelda due to bearing a resemblance to her. Link’s Awakening was quite plot-heavy for a Game Boy game at the time, and colorful, developed characters like her were influential on the rest of the series according to an old Iwata Asks interview a few years back. It’s definitely great to see her return in Hyrule Warriors! We’ll be sure to keep you posted when the inevitable trailer shows her in action.

  • Reversehero

    I’m really excited I love link’s awaking I’m glad they did this, hey who know maybe they will put other minor major loz characters. ( meaning they had a big part in a particular zelda game but not so much in the overall series)

    • Lynn Kitty

      I’d like to see the oracles from oracles of ages/seasons

    • Jonah Rosen

      YES!

    • Hogtree Octovish

      I’d prefer Veran and/or Onox, but they’d work too, I guess.

    • Reversehero

      I hear ya, I love Ralph he knew he wasn’t the real hero in Ages but always did everything he could to help Link plus he had a really cool theme song.
