It's already halfway through the month, but better late then never — Nintendo is celebrating Women's History Month by featuring its most beloved female characters.

March is Women's History Month and although it's already the 18th, Nintendo is determined to celebrate it. Because of this, Nintendo has released seven different posters of some of its most famous and beloved female characters. You can check out the list and descriptions of the characters below as well as their corresponding posters. It's interesting to note that Nintendo's most well-known female characters, Princess Zelda and Princess Peach are absent (we know, we know, Tetra is Zelda). We should note that these two characters are notoriously known for being helpless damsels in distress, but how about Sheik?
