Halo Developer 343 Design Realistic Link

Kyle Hefley from 343 Industries has designed what can only be described as a realistic Link concept. The design may not be to everyone’s taste but it is certainly an interesting take on a more realistic looking Link. What do you think to the design?

  1. Looks pretty good. It’s clear they were definitely playing more towards the original links, than any of the blondies we’ve gotten used to lately. I’ve certainly grown more fond of the thinner, longer ears and pants over the past few renditions, so this doesn’t totally resound with me, but it looks good nonetheless. Excellent detailing and shading. Definitely a little rough around the edges, but I’d give 343 the A-OK on the design :P

    1. An even bigger nightmare would be that Nintendo has turned into this kind of developer & people actually LOVE Nintendo for it. :/

  2. Ewwwwww burn it with fire. Never has a game franchise been insulted as much as now. Seriously, 343issues (343industries) + Zelda = END OF THE WORLD. Fucking hell, keep 343 AWAY FROM MY ZELDA.

  3. That face look’s like a pedo face
    And this is why cartoony character’s like link and Mario never while be realistic

  4. Pretty good but the face seems more focused on looking “realistic” for the genre than it seems to be trying to look like Link. Still the rest is kind of great.

  5. Definitely does not resemble Link.

    But I face it as a nice homage. Despite the paths the company is taking lately, Nintendo characters are wholeheartedly loved across the globe.

  6. This is really unfitting for Zelda but it is cool to see different points of view from different people, and the details (like the small key) are awesome!
