Well, I did make a thread pretty much exactly like this one here
Anyway, I'm in full support of a female Link. I mean, the character itself doesn't even have to be a Link, or even be the main hero (but still playable). So, it could be one of two options in my mind:
- Option 1: You pick the names of male Link and female Link, with players generally controlling male Link but perspective changes to female Link occasionally. Sort of how you control Rebecca and Billy in the Capcom game Resident Evil Zero.
- Option 2: You choose between female and male Link, with appropriate text changes to either choice.
I mean, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a female Link. Sure, it'll take a bit more time and money because you have to hire the right VA and get physics correct, but it is still win win. The Wii U is completely capable of having two different Link characters. It would still make sense storywise, with appropriate text changes. It could also help in that we will finally have a girl character who isn't entirely useless in action (i.e Zelda, Midna, etc). Really, I'm in full support of a female Link, because I'm tired of regular Link just doing what he does. He says some girl who is kidnapped by some silly ol' evil, then gets mediocre thanks at the end. Overused and abused. Perhaps he could save a girl, or team up with a girl, who is somewhat like him as far as background is? For example, in Skyward Sword, rather than Zelda being the focal point it could've been a likeminded girl who was bullied alike Groose who for some reason dove off into the Surface, then the quest could've been to save her...only that she had combat abilities of her own worth using and they could work together to fight off Demise or something like that. Just anything to keep away from the whole "Help me Mario, I'm in another castle" persona that most female characters have in Zelda.
For clarity, I DO NOT WANT a female Link who is for sexual/sensual moments and stuff like that. I want a female Link who is still as combat centric as the regular Link.
