Speaking on a panel at EXP Con in Jacksonville Florida, Charles Martinet, who voices video game icon Mario, stated that Nintendo
Well they should....it would keep it fresh. I bet I'm not the only one who would actually like some back and forth dialouge between Link and Zelda. Grow some balls and talk to the girl Link
Come on Nintendo get out of the past, release a damn console that's on par with your competition and give us a groundbreaking Zelda game.
Too be honest I don't really care if it's in it or not. JUST DON'T GO THE WAY OF OTHER M.
I think they should stick with the silent Link. If they were to put a voice to Link, it could sound weird and might not even match the character which would ruin it. I know what some people are like, they think it's a good idea, but when it's done they reject it and start flaming it lol.
they could make an epic zelda game using voice as long as they do it in the right way for each character
new hardware with franchise characters with no voice just text.....
Which means Nintendo will never learn and never wish to adapt to prevailing tastes.Some dedicated fanboys will encourage them to continue their outdated ways and Nintendo will continue to pander to them,but many will be turned off with their persistent refusal to actually create something new.Anyway,Half-Life is a poor example.While the protagonist remains silent,the world around him is full of amazing characters helped by stellar voice acting.Do you think Alyx Vance would be as beloved if she were silent too ?
This is a good thing IMO. Every time Zelda has had voice acting, it has ended up being a disaster. Hey Listen! Excuuuse Me, Princess!
To make it fair those games were made in the early 90's when voice acting in games wasn't big. Therefore they weren't able to hire very good voice actors back then...
Dbl post... :(
I don't know why but picturing Link talking causes Steve Blum to come to mind.... or better yet Johnny Yong Bosch.
Good. Giving Link a voice would ruin the whole series.
