really depends. Maybe they should release a trailer with voice acting and see how the audience responds? This means more money, though.

I think people would start to accept it then, but they need to have really good voice actors, not cheesy English ones.

I think they have to to be honest, it's the only way to push Zelda forward and push Zeldas and Links relationship further.

Who says they have to speak a ton, what about if they combine English with the odd Hyrulian word here and there to make it out that they are speaking their language but to us where hearing them in English.

Damnn fine idea. Let them talk hyrulian and we read subtitles. I remember in lord of the rings they had the language that the elves spoke I thought that wss pretty good. The Legend of Zelda is a cultural phenomenon so why not let it show more of the culture.

Why the dislikes, you have a good point. The reason voice acting wasn't taken too well with other Nintendo titles is because the voice actors sucked. I guess if we got a team, it could work well. Just as long as Link stays silent, all is well.

i don't want it to happened it wouldn't be Zelda if

Honestly at this point in time it would seem weird to add a voice to Links.

If they do some to most hardcore Zelda fans probably won't like it.

yes please! voice acting and a more mature story

KonsoruMasuta1013d ago

What do you want? Blood, gore, and swearing?

Zelda is made for all ages. Even then, it already has some mature parts.

Like in Majora's mask when Cremia accepted their fates and allowed Romani to drink Chateau Romani even though Cremia said it was only for grown ups. She even acknowledges her sister as a grown up, knowing that they probably didn't have long to live.

j-blaze1013d ago

blood and gore? why freaking not
but not just that, they need to stay away from the cartoonish design of the world and character, they need to hire designers like Kimihiko Fujisaka, plus fully voiced characters including link and the game should be M rated too!

link2Dpast1012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

I think people loose sense on what zelda represents. Its fantasy, there child like elements and adult, a balance formula if everything goes ape shit and there Gore and blood, then it looses its charm becomes like other games. Nintendo has always been the Disney of video games and even show admiration for them. Why because they have a formula that works and Nintendo does the same. And people call it repetition and in the real world Disney and Nintendo are still here so they must be doing something right. Disney owns basically all the world and if not for Nintendo video games would of went like the arcades. Any real gamer knows that's the truth.

DarkBlood1013d ago

Im 50/50 on that but it seems really risky among the fans who may be totally against it.

izumo_lee1013d ago

They could always leave Link as the 'silent' protagonist while everyone else be voiced. Or they could just hire Troy Baker to come up with a voice for Link since he is in everything nowadays.

Still it will be a touchy subject whether to add voices to a Zelda game after all these years.
