The lights are on
The Legend of Zelda now stars the title character as a playable character thanks to a hacker.
In a short video below, Zelda fans can get an idea of what it would be like to rescue Link as Zelda in the Nintendo Entertainment System title.
A similar thing happened with another classic Nintendo game, when a father’s daughter wanted to rescue Mario with Pauline in Donkey Kong.
What do you guys think? Would you like to see Zelda in the starring role of a future title in the series?
Haha, that's pretty creative. Now it's called " The Legend of ZELDA" for a reason. XD
I play it if it's renamed "The Legend of Link" ;)
Not bad. I would honestly see a Zelda game that takes place between the years during Ocarina of Time where Link is absent (that 7 year period where everything go horrible after Link pulls out the Master Sword). You can play as Zelda/Sheik during this period.
Miyamoto!! Make a prequel with Hylia, please!!!!!!
Here we go again, and they even have the audacity to put it in the News category this time...
I'm surprised that there hasn't been a Zelda game with Zelda as the main character. I still wouldn't play it either way (Mega Man fan :P), but I'm sure there's a lot of people out there who would want to play as a female character in Zelda... unless there already was such a game that was so horrible that no one wants to speak about it (example of an awful Zelda game: Zelda on CD-i).
Pretty sure Zelda looks like a bearded man with long hair in this.
Huh,well thats,a thing i guess.Came about from the whole feminist frequency thing i suppose.Its a nice idea,zelda being the hero and saving link,nice throw on things :3
This is an epic twist on a classic game of a legendary series. I love this idea and concept. Zelda should one day star in her own game; after all her name is in the series and he aided Link in his quest to defeat Ganondorf in ocarina of time as her alter ego Sheik. I think Zelda has earned her right to star in her own game.
Well, this will in a way make all the points Anita Sarkeesian makes in part 1 of her series moot.
They gave peach her own game, why not give zelda one of HER own for once? Hell, even luigi has had a couple
So it makes almost no difference at all. Fun idea but just no enough detail in the graphics there to make an impact.
I'd have just as much enthusiasm for zelda as the character as I would for link in a new game. But it would hard to overcome my disdain for the wii u enough to get one to buy one just to play a zelda game.
Let's see a stealth game set in Hyrule with Zelda as Sheik. Set it during the years of OoT during Link's absence (specifically in the timeline that leads to The Wind Waker) as she seeks a resolution to Link's imprisonment. We could even see a merging of story elements between the game and the manga by incorporating a relationship between her and Twinrova. But, of course, there's a reason I'm not in the game industry, so a better idea than that will suffice.
That's awesome! I like this even better than the Donkey Kong mod. Here's hoping this trend of creative hacking continues.
Eh... It's just a sprite swap, and not as novel anymore.
Playing as Zelda could be interesting, but ironically, that would make it not a Zelda game. Link has a very defined role as the hero of time, and Zelda just doesn't fit that role. She'd have to have a different style, which would likely turn the game away from LoZ's usual genre.
