Ok, I realize this will sound like something out of a bad fanfiction but please hear me out.

I think it would be really cool if Nintendo made a Legend of Zelda game wherein the main protagonist Link is female, and at one point in the storyline have it revealed that unbeknownst to her, she was the long lost Princess Zelda of Hyrule all along, and with her newfound realization of her own self, she gains the strength to defeat Ganon (or some other villain) and save her kingdom as the Heroine of Time.

I think this would be a really cool interpretation of the series that could bring variety to a franchise we all know and love. Plus, with Link turning out to be Zelda the whole time we can finally do away with that annoying confusion people have about who the series is named after.

I’d like to know your thoughts on this idea, because I don’t know about you guys, but I’d love to see this sort of thing fleshed out as a full game.

(Note: the attached picture is from a leaked concept art from the upcoming Hyrule Warriors title, where they had toyed around with making a playable alternate female counterpart to Link, which was later scrapped for unknown reasons. I had originally searched for a different picture, but I couldn’t find anything that wasn’t painfully cute, a disturbing hentai image, or a bad cosplay attempt.)

that would confuse people who don’t know about zelda even more. they already think that Link is Zelda.

But this time he is :p
