The Missing Link
[UPDATE 4: Zelda wins round 2! With a win against Terra Branford, our beloved princess will be going to the Division Finals against FFVII’s Aeris Gainsborough on November 1.]
[UPDATE 3: Ganondorf loses round 1, an upset by Vincent Valentine. So we’re down to Zel; her second round contest is against Terra Branford from Final Fantasy VI on October 18.]
It’s that time again! GameFAQs started a few days ago their fifth annual battle of videogame characters. Sixty-four characters will be thrown into the ring, but only one can be the best of them all. And as a community, we’ve always loved to see our Zelda characters come out on top. The competition will continue all the way through November 18, right up to the American launch of Wii.
This year, as the past couple have been, is split up into two rounds. The first is a classic Battle of the Sexes which pits 32 lovely ladies against 32 gaming gents to see who will conquer the rest. Then, the winner and runner-up of that contest will be thrown into the second and final round: The Battle Royale. The winning male and female character will be thrown into the ring with the four previous winners of the character battles past—Link, Mario, Cloud, and Sephiroth—and each day the character with the least votes is ousted from the competition. It should be a wild ride.
This year, we’ve got three Zelda characters in the mix with Zelda for the ladies and Ganondorf and Tingle for the gentlemen. You can vote for them on the following dates:
Zelda (1st seed, Triforce Division)
Tingle (8th seed, Destiny Division)
Ganondorf (4th seed, Blast Division)
Finals: November 13
You can find the full bracket here.
Whenever we go through a match, I will bump this topic to the top of the blog so you can see the next battle. Also, the countdown clock at the top of the main page will be proudly displaying the time before the next competition.Follow This Entry | Read Other Posts by The Missing Link
