When do we get a Zelda game where link is black?

thats like asking when are we going to get an assassins creed 3 where the protagonist is white. They conceived Link as a pale hero and for continuity sake they keep him that way. Dont try to racialize something that is not inherently racial.

50 Cent is probably one of the only black video game characters with more than one game.

His first game was abysmal.

His second was hilarious and actually a decent Gears ripoff.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

That would never work. Link can swim. Besides that Link is the silent protagonist. Black Link talks too much.

Name one black main protagonist who has been featured in more than one game. No side characters, if character creation is featured the default must be black, and they have to have been in more than 1 title. It's friggin impossible!


Sazh Katzroy and Barret Wallace are two main characters


I said main protagonist, those are side characters. The main heroes of those games are Lighting (I think, haven't played it) and Cloud

And I forgot about the Bulletproof games because they were horrible games that nobody talks about.


Bulletproof is one game. It is horrible.

His second game is Blood on the Sand (a game where 50 cent fights terrorists in the Middle East) and it was decent.

Isn't The Legend of Zelda supposed to be set in a fictional world different from ours? And in this fantasy world, they're supposed to be elves, so they're not even humans, let alone Caucasians.

Besides, blonde hair and blue eyes doesn't necessarily make the character Caucasian... just look at the Final Fantasy characters, where Cloud and Tidus are blonde-haired and blue-eyed yet their faces look distinctly Japanese.

Nintendos based in Japan, a nation that hasn't succumbed to politically correct "multiculturalism" or letting it warp their artistic vision just to pander to whiny babies that have victim complexes.

Link is asian or european. He could be either, due to how japan depicts even asians in games and anime. And he always will be. Deal with it. Its never gonna change.


If a videogame, movie, or other mediums protagonists skin color affects your ability to enjoy the game, then YOU are the racist.

Just sayin.
