I would be down for this female Link ⊟
Nintendo and Tecmo Koei have shared what looks like concept art for a gender-swapped version of Link, according to these photos taken of the Hyrule Warriors strategy/art book for Japan. The design looks great, even if it’s hard to tell her apart from the Dragon’s Crown Elf — then again, I guess bows, flowing cloaks/tunics, and thigh-high boots are common accoutrements when lazy designers create female elves.
You can preorder the English version of the Hyrule Warriors Game Guide, which includes a 70-page art section, from Amazon here (currently discounted by 30%). Thanks to Layiko for the photo (via GoNintendo).
New official artwork. I hope a higher res version is released soon.
