That trailer for the new Legend of Zelda for the Wii U sure looked great, didn’t it? But what was up with Link? He wasn’t wearing his iconic green tunic or hat. Why did Link look so weird?

“No one explicitly said that that was Link.”

That’s what Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma told me when I asked him about Link’s, or whoever it is’, new appearance during an interview at Nintendo’s E3 booth. He said this with a smile and a laugh. Could the bow-wielding hero we just saw not be Link, the star of every game in the series history?


Earlier in the interview, Aonuma told me that he was always looking for ways to shake up the series conventions. We saw this in the recent A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS, which let you explore dungeons in any order you wanted while renting items from a store. But a Zelda game without Link as the main hero? That would be a huge blow to tradition.

So, who is that? The outfit actually looks like the same one Link wore in the beginning of The Wind Waker. Aonuma himself smiled when I brought up this connection. Could this new entry be tied to that universe? Of course, that doesn’t explain why this wouldn’t be Link. Maybe it’s a child of a Link we already played as, like the one from Wind Waker or Skyward Sword. Let the speculation begin.

New character?! Was it a new version of Zelda?

It was a young Ganon, going by the forearm covers.

 

 

 

Mayvbe we learn Ganon is a link who went bad!

Looking into it further, a lot of strange things.

The horse aint Epona. It doesnt have a white mane or tail. This is Epona -

The horse that "Link" is riding in the new trailer has a black mane and tail.



What if Link has a silbling like in Wind Waker?

First ever footage of Link not having a Sword at all  (the SS poster doesnt count because well Fi was the sword)

also wrong horse.

Since the weapon of choice is a bow and arrow I somehow connect the character to Zelda. (Twilight Princess battle) but I expect Zelda to look better so NO zelda and no Link.

leaves the silbling theory or well first ever appearance of one of Links parents.


But then Zelda dessed as sheik without the sheik outfit!



is link.
maybe not the gameplay version. it may be the remembering of childish memory of link...

This is the same man who said to look to Link Between Worlds' ending for clues about upcoming Majora's Mask stuff.

It's Link



I doubt it was a female, no tits and a very masculine face. They had the same blue tunic Link always wears. If it's not link then it probably takes place in one of the universes where link is defeated and dies and the person is likely their brother who takes up the mantle to restore balance. It could be zelda but they in no way look feminine.
