Everyone's looking for something new in the next Zelda Wii game, and although it's not new, I think Sheik could be a very good addition to the game if implemented properly.
Sheik played a large role in Ocarina of Time, but we didn't get to learn much about her beside the fact she was Zelda allegedly disguised as a member of the Sheikah. I say allegedly because I personally believe it was more than a disguise: her eyes change color, and also, Sheik has PECS. Seriously.
I don't exactly know how Sheik could be used in the next game, since Sheik was a disguise used to escape Ganondorf, and many are against Ganondorf's appearance in the next game. Zelda certainly could be escaping someone else, or have deeper motives besides being a rebellious damsel in distress.
So, in short: I want to learn more about Sheik. Great character that was way too short-lived.
I don't want a revisit from Sheik, however a Sheikah character modeled on him would go down perfectly. Just out of interest, I love how Zelda's transformation into Sheik is a subject of contraversy within the Zelda fandom. There is nothing quite like the possibility of full magical sex change in the context of Hyrule.
Exactly what i was thinking. if ZWii is pre-OOT and the sheikah make an appearance i hope they include him.
I understand theorizing, but hasn't ZWii already been confirmed to be after TP, which has already confirmed to be after OoT?

I don't consider it very controversial, I was just shocked since for the longest time I thought it was just a disguise until I realized Sheik's...manly characteristics. I don't doubt that it could be a full sex change, I just want to know how, which is why I want expansion on Sheik in the future.
Maybe a dungeon played as both Sheik and Link? Perhaps something sort of like RE4 with an "Assignment Ada" esque side quest for Sheik fans could work.
As for working her into the story, it's not too hard. Zelda wouldn't even have to be disguised as a Sheikah. Maybe the plot of Zelda Wii can be centered around the Hylian Royal Family's betrayal of the Sheikah. That could actually push the storyline far back enough for the Master Sword to be a spirit and not yet a sword.
I'd actually be really interested in seeing a ton more of Sheik. The character is boss.
No any game that's pre-OOT considering even at that point in time the sheikah appeared to be almost extinct.
Is that just because Impa is the only one you see in OOT? The Sheikah are supposed to be an extremely secretive race, so we probably wouldn't really see any more of them than "deemed necessary" Not to mention, It seems to have been a very long time since OOT in TP, so it seems odd that a race with only one or two individuals would be able to last so long.
-Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not really, really stupid.
