Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Wonderful game!

The combat is medieval styled, and anything you kill doesn't have blood. They explode into a puff of smoke and disappear. There is mild alcohol, though the player does not drink, he can serve alcohol to others. When Great Fairies upgrade gear, Link makes an obscene sound when picked up by the Fairies. Link has to hunt in game, but as I said, hunted animals turn into smoke, and leave behind raw game. Great game, but if they got rid of the Great Fairy part, and replace it with enchanting, it would be even better.
