Link has always been described as a youth in the Zelda franchise. After all, Miyamoto modeled Link after his younger adventurous self. After many Zelda titles of Link's age ranging from a young boy to an older teenager, is it time for a change?

The theme during that intro scene, "Legendary Hero," combined with a unique visual style, helps entrench the scene in Zelda lore.

Recently, we talked about the Zelda series' spin-off titles, and whether or not the fans wanted Shiek to have her own game. We received mixed responses, with some in favor and some against the idea. While reading the comments, I wondered if there were any other characters that you guys want to have their own game. Tingle is out of the running, because of Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland...
