The new reveal trailer and past tweets by Koei Tecmo may mean that there is a female Link coming to Hyrule Warriors 3DS
That's pretty cool.
Cool I wonder if we will see more of her in other games?
Since you'll be able to play the 3DS version with the Wii U version, there is a good chance that she will make her way to the console as well.
Yeah, but will she make it to a REAL game, not just a port?
@ JoelsMad There is more leniency with mashups like this. In Dynasty Warriors Gundam, they were able to create all new characters. I'd figure that this would be the same case.
I'd be more than happy to play as female Link. This could be a good measuring stick for any new directions with Nintendo as well.
indeed. I wouldn't be too surprised if you were able to play as either a female og male link in future zelda games. It wouldn't be too hard as link never speaks.
That's awesome news! I would play it for sure!
But why would someone want to play as a female Link?
*scratches head* Okay that explains it halfway but you see only his/her back almost the whole time in the game ever.
I said almost the exact same thing in your second post once, Hoffmann and was called a pervert and "in need of getting laid." LOL I guess the people on N4G really like looking at guys backsides more than I do.
Same reason why there's a female Wolverine and a female Thor. Fan service.
Cool. This is as good a place as any to try new things. :)
Exactly. Hyrule Warriors is just a fun arena style beat-em-up. So why not play with new characters?
Gender bender stuff, when done right, can be great. Look at Adventure Time.
Soooo...Zelda is gonna be Zeldo? Or?
It will be the tranny edition. So every male will now be female and vise versa.
It's not like female Link is a reversed gender... Link has always been a different character each time. So, this time it would be a girl that was born into the role of the hero.
That messes up the lore especially the relationship between link and zelda as a whole throughout the series
God I hope not.
There already is a female Link. Her name is Zelda. Seriously I don't understand why we need genderbent characters when we have perfectly serviceable characters that could fit the role already available. It's basically saying that the only way to have a strong female character is to turn a male character female, which is just not true.
please tell me you're joking lol
No, I'm completely serious. Why would changing Link into a girl for a new Zelda game be better than having Zelda as the adventurer? It seems like everyone gets a hard-on from taking away already-established male characters and turning them into girls instead of improving the female characters we already have.
I saw the video detailing the crossbow..good eye!! That is definitely the female Link's crossbow, without a doubt. Very interesting.
Well, can't say the idea of Tecmo putting boobs on something isn't believable. Heh.
