I've got some news here that didn't fit in the existing game-specific Zelda topics, so I made a Zelda series general thread.

First of all: Twilight Princess HD confirmed for Wii U.

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/twilight-princess-hd-confirmed-amiibo-works-with-z/1100-6432235/

It comes packaged with a Wolf Link amiibo.

And an update on The Legend of Zelda Wii U: 2016 release date confirmed.

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/legend-of-zelda-wii-u-confirmed-for-2016-new-image/1100-6432249/

I really like the art style. And that huge-ass sword!

So, what's all this about a female Link? /Super confused

There's already great female ladies in Zelda, let alone great Nintendo ladies (cough Samus cough).

They made a female Link named Linkle for Hyrule Warriors Legends, which is coming out for the 3DS.

http://gematsu.com/2015/11/hyrule-warriors-legends-launches-march-25

I was hoping for a straightforward gender swap when I first heard about it, but unfortunately they turned her into a weak-looking crossbow wielder because female.

Linkle should be a separate character from Link, rather than a simple gender-swap, imo. I wish she had a less retarded name.

That and a sword. I could do without the bombs/boomerangs/etc, but a Link of any gender needs a sword.

Fans have been calling a hypothetical femaLink "Linkia" for some time. Don't understand why they didn't go with that.

Pretty much guaranteed to get a cease and desist order you know, right? Especially since the webpage for the project has a cash donation link, so they are making money from this.

My thoughts exactly.

And Link without a sword != Link. :shakehead:

Isn't this supposed to be a new character like his sister though, not just genderswapped Link himself?

This is so transparent. It's obvious they're only doing this because people are demanding it, Not because they genuinely thought making link a girl would add anything to the experience.

It's a non-canon sequel to Hyrule Warriors, and was probably done as an in-joke about people thinking the Link in Zelda U was a grill.

I think she was made because they wanted to use the design that was in the hyrule warriors art book that came out a year ago

Except the beta is already out and i have it, plus not too many people exactly know about it so its fine.
(That and the full thing is set to be released in 4 months, if it is left alone like it has been for a while then this is all good, and i only shared it on this forum because I don't see anyone here going to report this to nintendo or anything.)

Oh really? The gaming press is looking to undermine that assumption with direct and negative comparisons.

[url]http://www.destructoid.com/the-legend-of-zelda-twilight-princess-hd-graphical-comparison-320578.phtml[/url]

People in comment sections are explicitly compaing the two and/or getting them confused. Nintendo will certainly not sit idle with a threat to their brand that is taking attention from an upcomming official release. Doubly so because this requires an emulator, and Nintendo is firmly against emulation since they view it as piracy (and with so many classic games still available for sale through VC can you blame them?).

As for the timing, that's actually an even stronger reason for it to happen. So many fan projects lead nowhere that it's not worth the expense of legal action, but when one looks to actually reach release that's another thing entirely. That it means very publicly striking someone down after hundreds of hours of work and on the very cusp of victory just serves as a disincentive for others to start or continue other ongoing projects.

Well then for fuck's sake name her Aryll. "Linkle' just reminds me of Abradolf Lincler.

Not sure whether I'd get Twilight Princess HD. I've already played through the base game a dozen times, and the graphical upgrade doesn't seem that stunning...

Twilight Princess HD will have a new dungeon that can only be unlocked by the Wolf Link amiibo.

I think it's quite sassy to force people to buy some merch to unlock it, though.
