[...] B1:I always equate female characters with emotions, and Link has never really had any. B2I feel like if Nintendo made a female Link, they would have to dramatically change his personality and his being[...]B4 If this were to happen, I think the focus would me too much on Link. Zelda games that have had a good amount of character depth (to me) like Majora's Mask, The Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess were never focused on Link; their character depth came in the forms of other NPCs.
B3I highly doubt Nintendo would make a female Link, ever. That's like making a female Mario. Could you imagine a female Mario? Yeah.... no.
Making Link a female? No. Just no. I can't possibly ruin the image of the Hero of Time; prized knight of Hyrule and champion of light making him a her. It ruins the whole appeal of that fairy-tale story I was told as a child when the brave knight ventures to save the kidnapped princess.
They don't have to make a counterpart to female Link, as the story never centers around LinkxZelda romance. Even though it was implied in SS, it wasn't "official" and wasn't the focal point of the game.no... just no... unless they want to make prince zelda.
To attract more players, more money, and obviously to show what Nintendo can expand upon in the series. The whole "Hero in green who can do everything without being stopped" story is getting old, they need to do something different. One such difference, and it really isn't as big as the whiny fans are making it out to be, is changing the Hero to a Heroine. Remove the green garb as well, and give us something more ornate and decorative. Make it so the hero(ine) isn't a Gary Stu/Mary Sue [because we all know Link is].I don't think there is a reason why they should do this.
