When Kotaku first saw the concept art and game footage, they really didn’t have much to go on. Now, with Linkle’s debut appearance in the recently released Hyrule Warriors Legends, They know now - she’s far more than just “girl Link.”
Not really...they used the same model for Link and redesigned him into a girl. Instead of developing Zelda more it's like "Oh no we don't have a female hero better carbon copy the one we have"
I definitely agree with you there. I would love to see more with Zelda.
Honestly I just see Linkle as another character in a long line of alternate gender counterparts such as Supergirl, Batgirl, She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Ms. Marvel, Harley Quinn, X23, Minnie Mouse, Lola Bunny, Toadette, The Boss, Amy Rose, and Ms. Pac-Man.
All linkle is, is a girl version of link which to me is creative laziness
When a character is a staple of such a long running and popular franchise, why go and change their gender now?? I wouldn't have a problem with a brand new female character who had her own legend of zelda game but why change link into a female??
Der God, i hope they don't make a female link in one of the canon games. I'm no sexist or anything, but this is getting ridiculous... It's the same with the new Ghostbusters. The concept itself is build up on 4 guys hunting ghosts, or in this case, an elven dude rescuing the world... Don't f*** with the founding concepts people, make a spin-off or new IP instead :D
She does seem to have enough of her own personality to be considered a different character, which is neat. I only really have a problem with the name, which seems like a subset of Link, which doesn't do either of them any favours.. If people have a problem with her being a reincarnation of Link - I don't get why she can't be a reincarnation of some other legendary hero (or maybe she is? Maybe there's a previously unknown line of Linkles as well..) oh well I doubt she'll become canon.
If Linkle (lol) is indeed the new heroine then we need a Prince Zeldle for her to save. :)
