It’s been said that Nintendo have a female Link in an upcoming Zelda game. However that’s a stupid idea.
If we want the playable character in a Zelda game to be female, it should be Zelda.
A female Link would be boring. There are scant few things that can be done with a female Link that couldn’t be done with a male Link. So for all the needless controversy we’d end up with little more then a different character model.
Now the idea of a Zelda game where Zelda is the playable character? That sounds awesome. That gives you story and gameplay possibilities that you can’t have with a playable Link; regardless of gender. I’m not even going to waste your time spelling them out for you, you can think of them faster then I can type them.
It’s Zelda’s legend after all, I say it’s about time she got the spotlight.
