Aonuma has now confirmed that he was just joking. The person in the trailer was indeed Link, and is a male figure.
Ever since the Zelda Wii U trailer was shown earlier today, fans have been speculating if that was indeed Link we saw in the video. Some say the person we saw looked rather feminine, and comments have arisen about the strange choice of outfit seen on the figure.
Maybe this is because it was not Link in the video. When Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma was asked about it he replied with a laugh and a smile stating, “No one explicitly said that that was Link.”
Could this be confirmation that it was not Link shown in the video? Are we looking at a possible female hero? Or just a new hero altogether? Maybe Link will not be in this game.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
