It’s happening this game fo sho
God I hope not. I hate forced co-op games. Certain section would be tolerable to me.
Then he should be well aware that if the answer is no then not just saying such now would be fucking stupid.
Established?He tried to do the same "I won't say anything" about Link in BOTW years ago, before he had to clarify and explain that no, Link was still the same old Link.
He's said multiple times that they want only Link to be the playable character in mainline games (especially since he became an established character decades ago), and that they'd be fine to have other characters in
Maybe he "can't say" because they're honestly so early in development, all they've made is that trailer lol.Well he didn't say "no", but boy this sure reminds me of post-E3 2014 all over again.
The cutscene they decided to show teases a Link + Zelda partnership more than anything else (as did the ending of BotW for that matter), and if that wasn't the intended response, then that would be really disappointing. I'm hopeful that he's being coy solely because they want to announce this later on, but if they know she's not going to be a playable character, I wish they'd just get that out of the way now.
...why?Make her the protagonist you cowards xD
I don't care for Zelda games in general, but I will actually play this game if Zelda is a dedicated* protagonist. You can bookmark this to hold me accountable.
* as in, not co-protag, no "play her for a 1h mini-section", or anything
Nope. They're further away in dev for sure. We even had zell saying they wanted a 2020 release.
He's an established character and I would see their point before BOTW. But considering they literally dropped his iconic tunic and hat -- all the visual identity of the character, now it's ridiculous of them to pretend they care so much about this.
For your first bit: that's exactly what I said (about it being stupid to not clarify it right now) and something he already did for Breath of the Wild.Then he should be well aware that if the answer is no then not just saying such now would be fucking stupid.
People will just be more mad if they wait to disappoint people latter. Rip the bandage off if it's needed.
And obviously ideas for series never change and they could never make Zelda playable in a "mainline" game because it's against the law or some shit.
You're right I'm sure Zelda will be a fantastic character as she sits on the sidelines or turned to stone or kidnapped and Link does all the work.For your first bit: that's exactly what I said (about it being stupid to not clarify it right now) and something he already did for Breath of the Wild.
For the second bit: the "but Link is the link to the player in the NES game!" argument went away once they started reusing him and once he became popular. Link is an established character, design changes through his different reincarnations included (he's been a light brown/blond haired young guy with a relatively similar personality since decades). You're acting (like some other people) like Zelda is an RPG with a blank slate and where customization or something is what Nintendo wants, and/or (depending on the game/era) that Zelda shouldn't have the playable character that Nintendo wants.
It's like The Witcher: if they make one with Ciri as the main playable character, they would call it differently. TW3 is actually a great example in what could happen: Zelda playable in some small segments and nothing else. As said elsewhere, you can have strong characters and not have them playable.
Seriously, we have this debate every 2 years...
In Metroid, metroids consistently appear as enemies that Samus fights against.
Maybe people wouldn't do that if they stopped being coy and giving people false hope.
