@HyrulianOfHyrule impossible.

But I can see then expanding the recurring cast and the game formula. It doesn't always need to be Link as a single protagonist, weak at the beginning, gathering items to save Zelda. Hyrule Warriors wasnt just a collaboration in another games style. It showed us that Impa and Zelda can be fun playable characters and still be a Zelda game. A zelda game can be episodic.

For a long time Nintendo has been wanting to change what the meaning of a "Zelda game" is, and I think Hyrule Warriors gave us a taste of that.

@Crimzonlogic there's no reason that she can't be his sister in some incarnation. The recurring characters change a lot between games. Link has been a farmer, a train conductor, he has been Zelda's childhood friend in one version, and a complete stranger who only knows her by name in another.

Tsuchinoko commented on A Major Pokkén Tournament Announcement is Com...:

@-Godot again, its not about STARTING with N. The way Japanese works is very different from the English or other Romance language alphabets. The hint is that it contains the katakana ン, which while sounding like N, cannot be at the start of a word.

Japanese Kana work as phonetic representations, while looking like vowel consonant pairs to English speakes. Other N sounds exist, like な (na), or に (ni). The Kana ン is the only sound in Japanese without a vowel attached, which is why a word cannot start with it. So you're looking for a Pokemon that has it in the middle or end of its name, like Jigglypuff, which is Purin (プリン)

@ItsRainingGravy Oh wow, tbh I dont know that much about Pokemon. I saw the katakana hint and got excited. I like language and puzzle stuff. But looking at that link:

1-51

Metapod, Kakuna, Pidgeotto, Sandshrew, Sandslash, Nidoran, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Vulpix, Ninetails, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Venonat, Venomoth.

Tsuchinoko commented on Yo-Kai Watch Will Be The Next Pokémon, Claims...:

Really guys, Yokai Watch is an amazing game, and super fun. I prefer it over Pokemon.

That outselling Pokemon thing though? Debatable. Its still fairly new and Pokemon has ridiculous longevity and is so engrained into public consciousness.

@Krisi don't misunderstand the laws. Constitutional age of consent may be 13, but Japan has actually never updated their constitution in many situations like this. It is extremely outdated. Prefectures have all written into their own laws that the age of consent is 16-18 (nearly everywhere is 18)depending on where you live.

If you're arguing over censorship in this case and want them to not change the outfit, think about why an underaged girl, and I don't care if she's 13 or 15, needs to be sexualized anyway. And I don't care if she's a fictional character. These characters are made to be representations of people, and if game creators and those that consume their products sexualize the character then chances are they do the same to the real thing. If you want to make a sexy character, 18+ is a very easy age to chose. There's no reason to make them so young.

I don't mind a fictional character being scantily clad or whatever, but at 13 or 15 its inappropriate.

And before anyone tries to say its a cultural thing, I live in Japan, and underaged girls being sexualized in media and art is a problem.
