Zelda: Breath of the Wild

*Looks for Zelda Wii U thread*

*...Looks harder*

Huh. I can't believe we went this long without an official Zelda Wii U/(maybe)NX thread. You guys hear all this talk about voice acting (for everyone but Link) and gender options? What are your thoughts on that whole dealio?

I for one am against the gender option simply because Link's character has always been a dude. I don't mind Linkles existence in Hyrule Warriors or at all really, I just feel like Link won't feel as unique if there are two versions playable. I'm probably not wording this right but oh well, hopefully it will grow on me once the game is out.

Voice acting should be strange but I welcome it.

i'm cool with female link because it's not like link is confined to a gender in lore and the character is supposed to represent the player anyway - i'd be against it if the character had a developed personality other than "courageous", but as it stands i like it as an option

i remember rumors that this game would be comparable to skyrim in scope, that's what interests me most, it seems between the talks of return to zelda 1 roots and the optional link gender that the game is going to place a lot more emphasis on exploration and adventure than story, more than any zelda, and i think that's what the series needs

i support gender options because i still don't think there's any reason not to for a series where the main character being a dude has historically almost never mattered

idk about voice acting, i hope it's not terrible if the rumors of both are true

If it's just a gender option I don't see how it interferes with anything, really

I still don't think Zelda Wii U is even in existence, just a CGI video to trick us.

I don't see why Link couldn't be female, since technically Link died years and years ago.

I've got no beef against a girl Link. The character reincarnates practically every game. Why not as a girl?

I find the idea of Link being turned into a girl more acceptable than Mario being turned into a girl because of reincarnation. I would gladly accept Peach being playable but a girl Mario would be weird.

I don't have a problem with a female Link but I do have a problem with there being an option for a female Link. It makes Link into more of a player avatar and less of a character of his own.

Take OOT for example. When Link goes to rescue the carpenters from the Gerudo, the Gerudo eventually become impressed with him and accept him as one of their own, despite Gerudo law stating that there would only be one Gerudo man every hundred years. I don't think this would have had the same impact if you were playing as a female character. Having the option between male/female seems to me like it restricts writing for the sake of being gender neutral.

With that said, I'm all for the option if they do something like Persona 3 Portable where the female character has a shit ton of unique dialogue options and the rest of the cast reacts differently in certain situations. I just don't think Nintendo would do that.

the point is that you're supposed to feel like they're accepting YOU though, that's literally the entire point of the link character and has been since day 1

edit: this is @ dylan yoshi, lots of posts in this thread
