Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
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.
Hope you like it!
I would play, replay, and cosplay the shit out of this game.
AAAANNDDDD this is pretty much the greatest thing ever.
Cross stitcher Jaco927 has been working on this Legend of Zelda-themed alphabet since September 2011 and she just finished “Z,” which was for Zelda of course!
Link to the Past update? I’d play that :D
Miyamoto interested in revisiting A Link to the Past
“Miyamoto said he’d be “interested in creating something new maybe based on, or starting from, A Link To The Past” in an interview with Edge. “I think it’s important to bring some really new software.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise, since he’s already said he wants to see a remake on 3DS, but there’s a big hurdle in his way.”
