Maybe it wasn't Link we saw in that E3 Trailer after all.
A female link maybe!
Sheik is the female link.
enough already with the female link. It's not happening in this game
Crxss, that's kind of my point. They would make a game revolve around Shiek if they wanted a female protagonist.
You have no idea how many people would skip the game if that was the case...
Then those people are pathetic.
Already confirmed its a boy after internet couldn't take a joke. Enough of that idiotic idea.
come on Sasuke don't start that rumor again. It has been confirmed that Link is male. The new Link just means is another story and it doesn't follow up on previous games. That's all.
You've been to every news article yet you skipped the one that confirmed link's gender? How ironic :D
<Spoilers> If Demise in Skyward Sword cursed Link and Zelda for generations to come where they will carry out the same cycle of hatred with anyone in Zeldas bloodline and anyone who houses the hero's spirit then this game could feature out of that cycle. Makes you wonder where it is on the timeline. I would say before Skyward Sword but the only game you could make before SS is if you feature Hylias chosen hero as the main character and it leads up to the great battle at the end. Although saying that he wouldn't be called Link would he since the first Link ever was introduced in SS as the first person to house Hylias chosen hero's spirit.
That would, of course, be freaking awesome. I'm hopeful for a New Hyrule game, though.
I think it will be a sequel to Zelda II, finally.
I loved Zelda 2. I was glad that they returned to the original gameplay. But I'd always hoped that the RPG elements would return. SS kind of did this.
New link = new incarnation. Not a complete new character all together.
I will eventually get a Wii U for this and Xeno. It'll be too difficult for me to resist at some point, especially once the games are out and I see a good discount on the console.
Sigh, so basically a Zelda game that isn't one. I really wish that he would just make a new franchise to do all of this stuff with rather than ruining the Legend of Zelda I've come to love with forced changes made to appease raging internet posters and the gaming media. I have a feeling that this is a Zelda game I will not be buying. I'm not sure if I can even call it a Zelda game anymore. Its more of a game with the name Zelda tattooed on it for name brand recognition sells at this point do to all of the alterations. This will pretty much a be a lesser Skyrim with Zelda printed on the case.
That's really cynical thinking. Aonuma sought inspiration from the original Legend of Zelda on his own accord, not to appease fanboys. Why don't you give the game a chance before writing it off?
Playing Skyrim atm and there's so much to do mission wise. AI is dumb horse is slow and too many glitchs. Other problem is that there is not enough life to see or fight it's sorta empty. Zelda U is saiid to be taking the most enjoyable ideas of Skyrim as inspiration so that's a good start!
Weve seen and heard seriously nothing about this game yet. You dont know enough about it to say it sucks and youre gonna skip it. Wait...
I said it before and i'll say it again.I'm all for a playable female character in the legend of Zelda but if Link is changed into a female (hoping that is not the case)then i will be skipping this game altogether.FYI to everyone,i own plenty of games with female Protagonist.I just don't want anyone to think i'm sexist.
But the game is open world, you can reach to the mountains if you walk far enough! That being said, I couldn't care less about Link's gender.
I hear what your saying and i'm with you.Everything we're hearing about the game sounds great but Link should stay Link the way he is.Since it's an open world they should just add a new female character or use an existing one to the story.Giving people Options to chose is better than forcing it on people.
I wouldn't play a female Link for the same reason why I wouldn't play a male Samus - because it's not the same franchise at that point. Character creation has no place in the universe of LoZ, just as it would have no place in Metroid. You want to play a game with those options, there are plenty out there. LoZ, and MANY other game franchises out there, are not one of those games.
The thing is it would be more dumb for them to go with zelda as a protagonist or some other character that isn't link. There is no reason why link should be male. The character changes and looks completely different from one game to the next, the only constants being the blonde hair and the fact that he's fairly androgynous/feminine. Link's gender is not important whatsoever. There are characters where their gender is important but link is not one of them. Plus if they were really worried about losing fans they could always just give you an option.
zelda and metroid is I need
I hope the new nemesis starts out as a rival to Link. That would be a fresh twist for the series.
It says "new link" not "new character", so it's still link, and a lot of the zelda games have a different link. A new villain is cool though.
I know it didn't say "New character".In any case i hope you are right.
Black Link jk
Every link is a "new" link
a new Link a new nemesis sound interesting
Its a boy his name will still be link. A new link just means a new story. Just like the link in twilight princess was different to the link in skyward sword
Why does everyone act as if Gannon is the villain in every counsel Zelda game? 3 out of 7 counsel games did not have Gannon as the Big Bad. Anyway, whatever Links gender or shade- Or whoever the villain is- I am tapping my foot waiting to give them my money.
