The only defining traits any of the Links really have are that they're plucky/serious (depends on the game) young men who are unquestionably brave and save the world from evil.
How would a genderswap invalidate those few qualities?
If anything, it would undermine Zelda. I mean, she's already female. To make the protagonist in the new game female, and not use her...in a series which bears her name? Going out of the way to genderswap the male protagonist rather than use the already available eponymous princess?
It'd basically be saying that Zelda herself is irrelevant.
Et earello, endorenna utulien. Sinome maruvan, ar Hildinyar tenn' Ambar-metta!
If we get a female character to play in a Zelda game I would hope it's actually Princess Zelda. Link doesn't ever need to be female. They have a female with loads of potential for fun and new gameplay.
If I were to see Link as woman, I'd like to see a hot cosplay girl as Link.
As protagonist in a game, I think they should switch roles. Zelda the heroine & Link the prince or even a heretic that needs to be saved. I think that'll be cool but when we're playing as Zelda a lot of the physical attributes won't be the same. She might have to be more than, WAY more than what she was in Brawl because it's clearly obvious why. And what about Shiek? Just throwing that in there. Anyway, I can go along with this as long as it's pointed in the right direction.
