The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma sure likes to tease fans in the new Zelda for Wii U trailer shown at Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event yesterday. In a recent interview with Venture Beat, Aonuma has sent the game’s fans reeling after an off-the-cuff remark on Link’s newly speculated feminine appearance: “No one explicitly said that was Link.”
While the trailer shows the protagonist in Wind Waker garb, it also reveals he – or she – is right-handed, with Link commonly referred to as left-handed within the game series. The producer has previously remarked on making Princess Zelda into a playable character after a fan petition made the rounds to Nintendo, saying it was “something to consider”. So, could a feminine or androgynous protagonist be plausible? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
