It would be awesome if it was Ganon, but the ears don't match :/. Would definitely be a cool concept tho. Still tho definitly not a female.

All Hail the Jester King. The King is back, and I am still a dirty girl prof ;)

maybe its one of two characters.

I really don't think its Link at all.

Character only used a bow, no sign of sword
Wasn't wearing even a hint of Green
The horse in the trailer isn't Epona
Just overall doesn't look like Link

Now that I'm thinking of about its starting to add up

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?

Perhaps for the first time ever in a Zelda game. You get to choose the gender of your Hero?

Hahaha nice Usopp avatar xD

hehe, Usopp is the best.

My guess is that Link and Zelda have kids and this the new hero

Its Ganon, there is too much coincidence for the pattern of the forearms. Age, evilness makes you more evil looking, the future shall prove me properly right!

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




Mayvbe we learn Ganon is a link who went bad!

Maybe, I'd be cool to see the story of Ganon before he turned evil, but their hair color are different.
