The Legend of Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto has said it will never happen. Link will never speak. Despite pleas from fans, and suggestions from Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario, the legendary game designer seems firm in his decision. That fan fiction you've secretly been toiling over? Don't even bother. It will just get tossed in the trash with all of the requests for a North American Virtual Console release of Earthbound.
Still though, the topic is of great interest, and elicits many questions. Should the Hylian hero exercise his vocal folds? Would such a drastic change offer a more engrossing and enriching experience? Who would be more apt for the role: former President Jimmy Carter, or Jell-O adman Bill Cosby?
