Ok, this is will probably be ignored, but I have a question for Zelda fans out there that has to do with a female Link. I’ve been seeing this idea pop up more and more, and I want to know a few things:
1. Do you think there should be a female Link? Forget having gender options, just if there should.
2. Do you think Nintendo will do it in the near future?
and 3. Do you think the game will be successful?
As a girl myself, I hate the idea. I don’t want Link to be female. I see him as male, he has been male for 28 years. I have a lot of reasons why, but I’m not going to discuss them here. If they make him female then it better be for story reasons, not just for the sake of making him female. I really can’t tell if Nintendo will make it happen soon, but if they did I’ll be honest to say that I probably won’t buy it. One of the reason I play Zelda is to play as Link. I love him as a character. If they make him female… that just loses the charm for me. I’m totally up to play as Princess Zelda, or possibly a new female character, but Link MUST be male. If they make him female, then why not make Mario female? Or Samus male? Just because there are different Links just mean he’s not an iconic character as what he is.
Personally, I think it may not be successful if they did, but I honestly don’t have any good reasons for it right now.
So what do you think, Zelda fans? Should Link be female? Will Nintendo do it?
