What do you think Link's new companion should be like?
Personally, I've always liked the idea of Link's companion being a fairy. It's a very practical buddy to have and (Celia aside) the previous franchise companions of that nature were excellent. Both Navi and Tatl were informative albeit sometimes irksome (no, not annoying . The physical nature of the companion aside, I'd like to see Link's next helper be as informative as Midna. Also, never before has a helper bridged the gap so well between simply assisting and being a major part of the story. One last characteristic the companion must have: Enemy analysis. I like to know what fearsome foe I'm going up against with a few ambiguous hints on how to defeat them.
YES. Hawks/eagles/falcons are awesome. If Rauru can turn into an owl(Kaepora Gaebora), Zelda turning into a falcon doesnt sound too farfetched. Falcon Zelda could serve as a new and unique way to get a good look at the area, like she could fly over and show you where to go next. I'd like to see Link's face when the falcon turns back into Zelda...but I have a feeling it would be the same as TP Link's when Midna's curse is lifted. Oh well, that NEVER gets old.I kinda want his new companion to be Zelda. I wish she would get turned into a falcon in the new game, but Link doesn't know it. She would definitely need a different name too, to keep people from knowing that it was her.
