After the announcement of the newest installment of the Legend of Zelda series for Wii U, there was a lot of controversy over "Link's" appearance in the trailer. Many even said that "he looks like a girl." However, Mike Minotti from GamesBeat may have dug up some valuable information involving this character when he supposedly asked Mr. Aonuma about Link's art style. Here was his response:
"No one explicitly said that that was Link."
This statement is quite true. At no point during the teaser did anyone actually say that the character seen was Link. Also, the character was not seen wearing the traditional green tunic seen on Link. Of course, Link has appeared in alternate clothing before, but it would make sense for him to have his iconic tunic in a trailer, especially at E3.
Now, there is no guarantee that the interview above even happened to begin with as the author of the article does not have any proof, but it is certainly an interesting concept. If you would like to take a look at the article for yourself, the link (no pun intended) is below. Let me know what you think about this information!
