Zelda As Main Character, Saving Link? Comic Author Makes Pitch For New Legend of Zelda

Posted on Thursday, April 11 @ 23:39:25 Eastern by Heath_Hindman
Aaron Diaz, author of an online comic called Dresden Codak, has been inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s recent Tropes vs. Women in Video Games awareness campaign. He's drawn up a pitch of what a Legend of Zelda game might look like if Zelda were the heroic character and Link was the one who needed to be saved. No skimpy outfits, no damsel in distress, and you get the idea here. Below are the pictures from Aaron's own tumblr page:












 
Diaz describes the concept:

Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.



I would buy this action on day one. Would you?
