I think the next Zelda should have a female Link, and Link should be customazible. You see, Link is supposed to represent the player. So at the the beginning of the game, you could choose if Link is either Male or Female. Plus, to make him look more like you, you could choose things like eye color and skin color. Its a good idea and I think it would work to make Link represent you more. He would still keep his green tunic though.
Link could still be female. Like a misinterpretation of the Legend of Zelda. As long as the game doesn't advertise on the 'Games for Girls' adverts, I'm not bothered. However, the blond hair and blue eyes and green clothes can't change, they're basically Link's signature appearance.
Ask people about God nowadays and they usually reply, "I'm not religious, but deep down, I'm a very spiritual person." What this phrase really means is: "I'm afraid of dying, but I can't be arsed going to church." <-- Clickety Click
An option to choose gender should definitely be part of the games, Link is meant to be the player after all.
Plus it wouldn't be hard to tag any gender related text so it could be changed to fit the female Link. Facial expressions could easily be changed too, then you could convey a totally different message.
Im not open to a female Link either. And there isnt much to customize. The outfit and color has to stay the same. Maybe customizable weapons...
