When the first trailer was released for Breath of the Wild, some fans went nuts thinking Link was actually a female. It turned out not to be the case, but many fans are still craving a Zelda game where the main protagonist, Link, is actually a female and not a male. If we were to get a game where Link is a female, how exactly would that fit into the story and lore of the Legend of Zelda franchise?

YouTuber Basil Silly Six Shooter tackles this subject in a new video. While the majority of this subject has focused on should Nintendo make a gender swap, Basil decides to take it in another direction and ask, “Could they make a gender swap?” He uses some cool animations and really does well presenting this video. He not only takes a look at Link swapping genders, but also Ganondorf and Zelda. At the end, he presents his own story for a Legend of Zelda game that is very interesting. What is your take on his video? Would you like to see a female Link in the future? Let us know down in the comments!
