Earlier this afternoon, much to my shock, I got an e-mail from Nintendo informing me about Women’s History Month. It wasn’t so shocking that they were commemorating the month (although I didn’t quite know it was Women’s History Month), but it was shocking that they were featuring The Wind Waker’s very own Tetra as one of the poster children for their campaign!
She is accompanied by excellent company, with Toadette, Bayonetta, Rosalina, Samus, Bombette, and Lucina all receiving the same treatment. Along with the picture also came this description:
“In The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Princess Zelda was actually a tough and spunky captain of a ragtag group of pirates. Tetra saves Link from Ganondorf’s clutches, and later helps Link defeat Ganondorf for good to save the world.”
“What are you laughing at, Ganondorf?! You’re insane!”
While Tetra does get captured as Zelda, she is by far the liveliest and one of the most interesting iterations of the Zelda character to date, and as Nintendo states, she did assist Link in defeating Ganondorf!
