I mean I don't see how it's a problem in any way.infohippie said:Maybe not a BIG deal, but how boring! It changes nothing except to give the protagonist a stupid name and perhaps give fuel to Link/Zelda yuri fan art. Wouldn't it be vastly more interesting to give Zelda some weapons and charge her with rescuing Link?Secondhand Revenant said:It's not like it messes with series continuity, such as it is, given how Link appears to be a different individual in each game. Reincarnation with Link as the opposite gender doesn't seem like a big deal.infohippie said:I think that would be a great idea. Don't change established characters, just try making already-female ones the protagonist. That also avoids the worst side effect of gender changing a known character: Giving her a stupid name like "Linkle".Saelune said:If people want a female protagonist in a Zelda game...why not Zelda? Id much rather a game where Link gets captured instead of Zelda for whatever reason, and Zelda has to be the hero, instead of making a female Link.
I would rather make new good female heroes then just genderbending male ones.
As for boring, maybe. It's not exactly exciting, but it's not *bad*. And they could always drop that awful name since they won't have to distinguish between male Link and female Link in the game.
It would probably be more interesting just in general to change it up and make a game around Zelda. That said, it doesn't mean they shouldn't do female Link
