Support for Dominant Female Character Roles in Video Games sign now

Dear Whomever It May Concern,

We as female gamers and supporters of this petition feel that the Nintendo Corporation would benefit largely if they were to produce a game targeted toward female audiences. We understand that finding interests common to many females is difficult, and even more so to draw them to playing games to the same level as our male counterparts.
One game that myself and my sister (the authors of this petition), as well as a large majority of our female peers love to play is the Legend of Zelda. I have personally asked around to those female gamers outside of our immediate circle of peers, and even thus the answer remains the same: The Legend of Zelda is what draws most of these girls into gaming.
Take for instance one example of a girl who started out playing Nintendo's Legend of Zelda, and this was the onset of her deep interests in other, male-dominated games.
Therefore, we have a proposal. We would love to play a game in which Zelda is the hero, and must save Link from impending doom. To prevent boredom from an all-too-familiar recurring storyline, we also suggest that the storyline for this game be original enough to keep avid Zelda fans interested in playing, yet not so deviantly different that the storyline would suffer for lack of familiar themes, as well as making sure that the character of Zelda is not limited in abilities in comparision to Link.
In producing such a game, Nintendo would be demonstrating its ability to include the female demographic in its target audience. More importantly, the presence of a strong female character who is NOT SCANTILY CLAD will help potential female gamers identify with the character(s). And this is what we are proposing - that we would like to see more "Link-esque" characters who just happen to be female, and might in turn be saving the usual hero from impending doom once in a while.
