Hey guys, I’m hoping I can have your support and help with another cause. Recently one of the creators of the Zelda series stated that he would be open to giving Princess Zelda a playable role if enough people have “strong feelings about it.” Well, I do and I’d even be happy if they just gave her a more befitting role for a ruler with the Power of Wisdom and the Gods at her disposal. So I created a Facebook page for it and would love it if you joined and if you spread the word about it. Just like with the Hyrule Historia push we made: I believe we can make this happen.
Please join! Let’s absolutely shock them with how many people want to see this happen.
Editing this in to clear up some questions, from the cause’s page:
"The character the Legend of Zelda series is named after is the ruler of a country with the Power of Wisdom and the Gods at her disposal, yet she’s often represented as a damsel in distress. While she’s had great moments as characters like Sheik and Tetra, she more often than not feels like a background character, overshadowed by the two other Triforce bearers, Link and Ganon. Nintendo, the fans, male and female, have wanted this for so long: please give Princess Zelda future roles more befitting of her actual attributes. And, if you see fit, make her a playable protagonist."
So, you don’t have to want her to be playable, just to have a more visible and strong role in more of the future games. But even if you just like imagining things like playing Ocarina of Time from her perspective, (which must have been wild,) I would hope you would join. Thank you!
