We Might be Getting a Lady-Led Zelda Game, But We’re Definitely Getting Marriage Equality in Final Fantasy XIV

Above, you’ll find the E3 demonstration of the WiiU’s first traditional installment of the Zelda franchise, and Nintendo higherups are hinting that the game’s focus may be a break from tradition, in many areas. At the very end of the video we’re treated to some good old fashioned monster fighting action, in which Link is portrayed even more androgynously than usual, lacking even his characteristic Master Sword and green tunic. Zelda director and producer Eiji Aonuma has pointed out to GamesBeat that “no one explicitly said that that was Link.” He also told Japanese outlet 4Gamer that one of the goals Nintendo has for this installment of the franchise was “[a game] where it wouldn’t even matter if Zelda is actually a princess, or not.”

Rest assured that we will keep you updated. And in the meantime, bask in the knowledge that Square Enix will bring marriage equality to Final Fantasy XIV in upcoming Patch 2.4.
