Does Link actually talk in Zelda games? Can he still be considered a silent protagonist? What does the future hold for Link’s voice? I think this is currently one of the most interesting Zelda debates and it’s a debate that will continue to gain steam into the future. In early Zelda games, it made sense that Link didn’t talk because of the technological limitations, but now Zelda games are increasingly cinematic and Link’s silence is starting to become somewhat awkward.
In my newest video up on our YouTube channel, I address these subjects and more and give you my take. This is actually a video that I planned on going a very different way but after doing the research I was only able to come to one logical conclusion. I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Do you agree or disagree? Do you want Link to have a voice in the future? Let me know down in the comments!
