Zelda Takes the Lead as Link Disappears in Announcement for The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom

Everyone who plays The Legend of Zelda knows that it’s Link who is the main playable character of the franchise, but Nintendo is now giving fans a Zelda game where you can actually play as the titular character.

Check out The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom announcement here:

It’s up to Princess Zelda to save Hyrule in a brand-new The Legend of Zelda story.

As anyone who plays Zelda can tell, this is definitely a subversion of the very common trope in the games where Link has to save Zelda in one way or another.

In Echoes of Wisdom, Zelda isn’t given a sword or shield, but a magical staff, the Tri Rod, which will allow Zelda to make copies of certain items she sees along the way. Not only can she make duplicates of every day items like rocks and beds; but she can also make copies of living things—summoning some brutes that can fight for her.

Though Link the central character of the story it does look like he’ll still be playable in some sense. I’m guessing that Zelda will have to save Link this time, and then players will have to switch out between the two with Zelda paving the way with her Tri Rod and Link doing all the heavy lifting that Zelda can’t.

Hopefully we get another look at the game before it launches in a few months.

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom launches for the Nintendo Switch on Sept. 26.
