@Nictel: That bit in the last paragraph you wrote would stir up a lot of controversy... and remember, the people in charge have to at LEAST enjoy it a bit so they actually want to put in an effort for the same pay. Some people aren't comfortable at the possibility of having in-game nudges at, well, eh... never mind.

This gender situation really makes me feel uncomfortable. D:

@Snow_Storm: I've seen that picture so many times that it's about half as amusing as it was before... :|

Prince Zelda and Miss Link would be nice.

Re: Female Link or customazible Link?

Well most RPG's handle it well, it's not like it's anything new. It was in both KOTOR and Mass Effect.

Well I dunno I mean they are Japanese and well, I dunno if you every seen the stuff that comes out of there. Like tentacle raping monsters, woman giving birth to demon spawn and stuff.

Re: Female Link or customazible Link?

I wouldn't mind having a female Link at all. Oh course it should probally be and option. And I would love a customizable Link! I mean he would have to maintain his (or her) basic tunic, but you could still change everything else!

Re: Female Link or customazible Link?

-Nintendo has produced 2 Zelda games were you play as a male or a female: they are called Zelda BS and tLoZ: Ancient Stone Tablets. BS The Legend of Zelda: The Ancient Stone Tablets - Zelda Wiki.org
-Link had a haircolor range from dark brown to light blond, with everything that is inbetween. His eyes have been blue, brown and green depending on the game. Zelda has been a red head in the early games, then she went blonde and now she has gone brunette.
-Nintendo allready produced a game with a female version of Link (altough she was not the main charcter)Aba - Zelda Wiki.org

It has happened, I don't see why it should not happen again.

Actually there is no reason at all to change Zelda's gender. Link however is meant to be the player so it would only make sense if only Link had the option of gender

Would be cool to see Zelda hitting on a female Link though...

I never knew about Aba myself (having little knowledge on Tingles game) but it pretty much seems Nintendo were trying out the possibility of a female Link

Actually I would imagine that the facial expressions for the female Link would be changed to convey a different message.

yeah probably, or we'll just have another 'childhood friends' thing, where Link and Zelda are friends no matter what the gender

Re: Female Link or customazible Link?

I think if this were to happen there would have to be whole new Legend of Zelda Series. No Zelda. Just some new random person trying to defeat Ganon. Otherwise it would not be right. But customize would also call for new story line. Your character in female version and customizable version couldn't be called Link.

Re: Female Link or customazible Link?

I agree! It's about time we had a female Link. Why can't it be a girl? The decendant of the hero of time could possibly be a female, what are the chances of it always being male? Pretty slim if you ask me.

As long as she doesn't look stupid with breasts the size of planet Earth it would be pretty cool. Someone kick ass but elegant at the same time.

Its a good idea and I think it would work to make Link represent you more. He would still keep his green tunic though.
well i would suggest that nintendo asked a quetion in the game that asked your gender, and i all for the customization

Re: Female Link or customazible Link?

They wouldn't have to make Zelda a guy, just drop the romantic hints and it will alright.

There wouldn't be a female version, there would just be the game where you could chose gender.

There would not have to be a whole new series at all, you are overblowing this. I don't think you understand what kind of character Link is anyway, there would be no reason at all you have a completely different person. There would be nothing wrong at all that would warrant what you are suggesting.

Why can't the female version be called Link? Link has changed all the time, his hair colour, eye colour, age, art style. Why can't the gender change?

exactly, and he's only called Link if you call him that. Canonically, he's called Link, but in gameplay, doesn't have to be.

Heck I played through TP once imagining Link as a female instead of a male, it didn't take much imagination.

Slightly different sounds, walking animations, gender based phrases changed to fit the female Link. Heck it was easy to change Midna and Links facial expressions and body language so it didn't look like she was hitting on him.

Seeing as this gender choice would be in a new game and not in an already finished game, it would be much easier

Ok listen here.

Your telling me that every character in every game has to be the same as the player? So basically you're saying that if a tall black dude plays mario then instantly Mario has to be a tall black guy?

**** off and go play Oblivion you ****.

Violent, ******* giant men and Gorons charging at a sweet, courageous young woman? They had to make a girl character from some fighting game trans-sexual because the Japenese wouldn't allow letting people see a girl getting beat up.
um. no they arent? anybody remember street fighter? where you can beat the crap out of chun-li...I cant think of any right now, but theres more
and id be okay with the idea of link being female. I mean, Link DOES represent the player

as for the hair, I dont see why not...I mean, he had pink hair, brown hair, dirty blond, and pure blond, so i guess it wouldnt matter. Whenever you play alttp, do you go "hey! he doesnt have blond hair blue eyes, this isnt link!"
