    First let's start off by saying this isn't actually something in development (unfortunately). Sorry if I got you excited. :lol:

    There's been a few fan made ideas for Zelda games in the past while but this one I thought was really fucking cool.

    What if Zelda Was the Hero Rescuing Prince Link? - Cheezburger

    There was another one not too long ago about following Zelda while she is in hiding with the Sheikah while Link is frozen in the Temple of Time for 7 years during OoT.

    I personally think that either one of these as a game that focuses on stealth and agile fighting gameplay would be hella tits. And Zelda being the protagonist would just kind of go really well with the theme.

    So, thoughts? I can only hope that stuff like this gets enough attention where Nintendo would actually consider doing something like it, but until then I guess I can dream.

    :wub:


    Actually I think it would be really cool if they went with the theme of Zelda as a Sheikah while Link was trapped in the Sacred Realm for those 7 years. Basing it on stealth and silent assassination would kick so much ass. Just to up the ante some, make it a bit more "mature" in its content and of course make it 3D with interactive environments.

    Oh god, I'm actually drooling at the thought of this... :nuts:

    Actually, the CD-i was made by Magnavox/Phillips. I got one just to play the three Zelda and two Mario games that were made for it and they are all truly horrible. I'm a big video game collector though. I wouldn't recommend anyone shell out the cash for this stuff (unless you're a collector) because it is really bad.

    I was thinking it could be something like Metal Gear Solid 4 meets Elder Scrolls.

    While we're on the subject of CD-i:



    Your praise for the Zelda series is now tainted.
