Why Wasn't a Game Ever Created for the Goddess Farore?

I have always wondered, "Why is there not a video game created about Farore, the Goddess of Courage?" Nintendo created Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages for the Game Boy Color at the same time. Oracle of Seasons was about the Goddess of Power, Din. Oracle of Ages was about the Goddess of Wisdom, Nayru. Farore was featured in these two games as the Oracle of Secrets, but she never played a main role in her own game. What made Nintendo decide to create a game for Din and Nayru, but not Farore?

That's your share of the loot. Enough to shut you up, I hope.

There was one planned originally, but there ended up being too many complications with the linking, so it was scrapped.

Because everyone hates Farore. *Looks at clan*. Whoops. ^What this guy said. The password system would get wwwwwwaaaayyyy overcomplicated then negative things would happen in relation to stability of the games.

Re: Why Wasn't a Game Ever Created for the Goddess Farore?

I believe that Nintendo didn't make a game because Farore is the Goddess of Courage and Link holds her part of the Triforce. Link and Farore are of close similarities. Farore looks like a Korki and Link lived in Korki Forest as a child in OoT. Farore wears green and so does Link. In OoS/A, Farore is the Oracle of Secrets which is if you have both games (which I do) there are people who tell you secrets to bring to the other game's Farore. This is why I believe Nintendo didn't make Farore one game 'cause she is like the assistant to the Maku Tree, just like the Korkis are loyal to the Deku Tree.

That is a load of crap. It was a matter of technical limitations and nothing more.

Yeah, it's your opinion, and I called it crap because it's wrong. As in, the creators of the games specifically stated that technical issues were the reason it was canceled. Your opinion is nothing more than baseless guessing.

Re: Why Wasn't a Game Ever Created for the Goddess Farore?

Thanks for all the help! I did some research and found out that Farore was supposed to have her own game called The Legend of Zelda: Mystical Seed of Courage, but it was cancelled due to linking problems!!! I think it would be really cool if they could pick up the idea again, especially if they are going to re-release the Oracle games for the 3DS. Maybe one day Farore could have the credit she deserves.

AH! Well fine be that way. This is suppose to be a place where people put their opinions and thoughts to why they didn't. And fine it might be "technical issues" but it doesn't mean you can ruin other peoples' fun. sheesh

No, Oracle of Seasons was about the Din, the Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages was about Nayru, the Oracle of Ages; not the goddesses. [Although the more action based OoS could be related to power as the more puzzle-based OoA could be related to wisdom.]

As far as I remember reading, Farore's game was going to be like Ages and Nayru's was going to be colour-based. [Might explain the changing colour tile puzzles in OoA.]

Probably be too hard to have two Farores (Link and spirit) so they just ditched it.

Sorry!!! I was confused about whether the goddesses and the oracles were the same or not. I guess that maybe the oracles were just named after the goddesses? There has to be some connection between the goddesses and oracles, though.

Re: Why Wasn't a Game Ever Created for the Goddess Farore?

I think it would be too hard to make a three-game link system in the future. This amounts to 15 possible games in 3 rather than 4 in 2. Lemme list em, with games 1, 2, and 3...
1
2
3
1-2
1-3
2-1
2-3
3-1
3-2
1-2-3
1-3-2
2-3-1
2-1-3
3-1-2
3-2-1
15 games is like all the Zelda games ever released I think, not counting the non-canon CD-i games.

Well, making differences for all 15 of those game possibilities would be a bunch of work, and even if it's doable, I don't think releasing 3 games at once would be much more profitable than releasing two. Most people aren't going to be able to buy all three at once, and those that want all three can later get the remaining ones used. Profit for resold old games doesn't go to Nintendo. Nintendo only makes money off of the first sale. So Nintendo would be supplying much more work for only a small percentage of increase in profit.

tl;dr: It doesn't strike me as something that would work as well as a business plan, because the highest number of games that enough people will buy at once is two. That's why Pokemon games are released in pairs; some people buy both, fewer people would buy them all if there were three.

As for why Farore was the one left out of the Oracle series, my best guess would be that she is the most prominent goddess in the rest of the series. She is represented by the Triforce of Courage. That's the piece Link get's. Given that Link is our protagonist, Farore is, in a sense the most represented goddess in the series other than the Oracle games. As such, they decided to cut Farore and give the more neglected goddesses their moment in the spotlight.

Re: Why Wasn't a Game Ever Created for the Goddess Farore?

In my opinion, for the linking, you could've beaten both games then receive a password for playing Farore's on a different level.

Beat OoX 1 - - - Get password

Use password to start OoX 2 and beat it - - - Get another password

Use password to start Farore's game

Are you saying Farore's game would only be like a sequel for those that have beaten both?

That isn't a bad idea, but if they did want to make the third game and re-release the other two, they could just take out the linking altogether. I mean come on... you had your fun with it already, but I'm sure you could do without it for the sake of getting the third game! Did that many people actually link their two games anyway? I didn't.. and i had both games...

Re: Why Wasn't a Game Ever Created for the Goddess Farore?

I think making a brand new game available only to those who have beaten previous old games would be a horrible business move on Nintendo's part. Making such a large amount of content available only when old content, that may have already been experienced, has been beaten will possibly make a lot of people reluctant to buy the game.

I'd like them to bundle the Oracles with a third game available from the start. Nah, scratch that, make a brand new game and leave the Oracles alone.
