I don't think the convoluted Zelda lore should dictate whether they should try new things with the Zelda series. Where does "Lorule" fit in the lore? A female Link could be fun. Or they could just reverse the thing and let Zelda be the protagonist, if it has to be "a boy and a girl".

Actually, if they've managed to squeeze in every game into the "timeline" so far, I bet they could come up with something to let Link be a girl once.

I'm not even saying I need a Zelda game where you play a female, but arguing that it shouldn't be done seems a bit backward.

@Croz Because offering both variations of the physics would mess up things completely. If you designed a level around a certain jump height, running speed, etc, it would break when switching. Locking it to a specific one seems like the better way. Which one doesn't really matter. Both play great.

@Peach64 It's also a publishing rights issue, I think. Nintendo published games would probably be easy to put on Virtual Console. But the third parties probably have to be convinced, which is probably hard if your game is to be released back to back with Super Mario World or something like that.

I hope he doesn't turn it into too much of a Skyrim, where content is plentiful but largely uninteresting. If it successfully combines an open world with the fun items and tight gameplay of a Zelda, though, it could be fantastic.

@Peach64 The first day is important, but it's even more important how far the sales fall before they stabilize. If Mario Kart 8 turns out "evergreen", the first day sales will pale eventually.

(That's impossible with the current install base, obviously. Just saying.)

hiptanaka commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

@zeldazero @LDXD In that case, yes it should be patched. Otherwise I don't see it being much different than bunny jumping or rocket jumping in Quake, or one of various skill-based techiniques in Star Craft that were glitches originally. If every vehicle could do it, it would just make the gameplay deeper (but not harder to get into as a newb).

This bit from the Eurogamer article says more than the percentage, I think:

"Nintendo's racer earned the company its biggest Wii U game launch in the UK to date, and the second best launch for a Mario Kart title ever in the UK."

Not bad. I hope they can keep momentum.
