“Within the development team, too, there have been talks about how it might be cool to have a game that features Sheik as a protagonist. It’s having maybe a Zelda spin-off with Sheik as a protagonist, for example, I don’t think that’s an impossibility.”

 

Would a Zelda spin-off featuring Sheik, Princess Zelda's alter-ego, be of interest to anyone?

Personally I'd be interested to see what they do with it. I wonder if it would have similar backlash to MP:FF if the next Zelda game actually starred Zelda (in some form or another), rather than Link.

Hell yeah I would be interested. It doesn't even need to be Sheik. A Sheikah-led Zelda game in general would be pretty cool (I loved SS Impa).

Only if it had the same bland world design, character design, and gameplay. :P

PLEASE DO IT WITH TEAM NINJA COME ON BRING US ZELDA OTHER S

 

 

 

Okay, seriously. This is pretty dumb to me, simply because Sheik only existed during a select time frame of the 7 year span in Ocarina of Time. I'm okay with one game featuring a brand new Sheikah tribe member, but NOT the character that we formally known as Sheik (i.e. NOT transvestite OoT Zelda hiding her identity from Ganondorf). That Sheik is not a real Sheikah, nor has their skills; it's just cosplay, and the Smash moves (and more so the Hyrule Warriors moves) are fabricated for convenience.

 

So yeah, I'm open to the idea of a game featuring the Sheikah tribe and their challenges, starring a member with a different name, but not Cosplay Wannabe Zelda Sheik.

What if the game looked at that 7 year time span from Zelda/Sheik's point of view? Or more likely, some sub-time span in there. I have no idea what they'd do for a story, but it could have the capacity to be very story-driven. Although with how well Nintendo does story, maybe not. :(

That wouldn't be bad. I would actually like that, but they'd have to be careful. All I know it's that it wouldn't be an action-packed, ninja-be-quick-as-fuck, kicking-ass-and-taking-names game. I always took it as Zelda laying low in ninja dude garb to hide from Ganon while waiting for the right time to aid Link when he needs to learn some new jams. A game like this doesn't sound any better than an Ann Frank Simulator™. Something like this would be best handled as a DLC side story.

You raise good points (even though you lost your ability to quote properly). If they made it a game that was all stealth missions, it would suck, because stealth missions suck. Make sure someone tells them that, so they don't do it.
