What Link? Twilight Princess Link? SS Link? Majora's Mask Link? Gender-neutral A link to the past Link?

No need, magic is more than enough.

 



Still don't understand the obsession with taking already established characters and twisting them to suit a social narrative. I would think creating new characters with new stories would be something the LGBT community could get into more. It just feels like a shallow attempt at being inclusive imo.

And why exactly is it a heterosexual woman, telling a dev, what a community she isn't part of wants? Wouldn't the appropriate thing be to hire LGBT artists/writers/etc... to create what they want? Dunno, it doesn't impact me greatly, because I don't really play Zelda games anymore...but, it doesn't come across as very genuine to just co-opt existing characters.

"This alteration is simple, wouldn't take much effort and would make everyone happier. [...] Of course, Nintendo would probably object to the idea, considering their patriarchal attitude these past months, which includes a strong, independent female worker Alison Rapp being fired because of her ideals.

A slight bias in the above statement, maybe?

Nintendo says she was “terminated due to violation of an internal company policy involving holding a second job in conflict with Nintendo’s corporate culture.”

“Though Ms. Rapp’s termination follows her being the subject of criticism from certain groups via social media several weeks ago, the two are absolutely not related. Nintendo is a company committed to fostering inclusion and diversity in both our company and the broader video game industry and we firmly reject the harassment of individuals based on gender, race or personal beliefs. We wish Ms. Rapp well in her future endeavors.”



I'm very glad today is April Fools day.
