Shigeru Miyamoto Says Link’s Full Name Is “Link Link”

Akin to how Mario’s last name is the same as his first, Link’s full name is “Link Link.” That’s according to series creator Shigeru Miyamoto, who mentions how Link isn’t human as a reason to justify the unconventional last name. You can check out his explanation in the video interview below. Link stars in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is scheduled to launch on March 3 for both Nintendo Switch and Wii U.

      1. The article doesn’t indicate that they were joking. And I’m guessing a lot of people just read the article. I did that at first. But then I got a few minutes to actually watch the video and saw that it was actually a joke. Probably should have been made more clear in the headline/article.

      2. Ooooooh, all this misconception makes a lot more sense. Yeah, it’s very clear in the video that they are joking around, definitely should’ve been included in the title. Funny stuff, very enjoyable to watch.

    1. I’d like to believe it was an accident that you didnt clarify the context of this statement, but I think you did it for the clicks. At first I was mad at Miyamoto for saying this, because it really underminds the seriousness of the franchise, then I read the comments and people are saying its a joke… well thanks for getting me pissed off for nothing Alba.

    2. Alba, maybe I need to make it clear that the name “Link Link”, was merely a jest.
      The Creator Miyamoto said “It’s the same as Mario’s”, and The Creator Miyamoto has stated several times that Mario’s name is not actually “Mario Mario”. And neither is Luigi’s name “Luigi Mario”…

      “‘Tis but a joke”, crudely put.

    1. I think they wrote this so we all could discuss it in the comment field. They already written this news in the 51 sum-up thing. They probably saw how enthusiastic everybody got about it so they made a dedicated articles for views and Fandom Rage.

  1. First off, Link doesn’t even come from a universe where characters have last names.

    He’s obviously trolling us now. I guess that SMB3 stage play nonsense and him being Bowser Jr.’s mother is officially crock.

    As long as this remains a freaking joke, I’m good. But if he EVER decides to be serious & actually try that shit, I’ll flip! D:<

  3. Hey listen MyNintendoNews. This video from Game Informer was delightful. The amount of joviality expressed from these two and the lightheartedness of their answers was something we don’t see often from Nintendo. Likely because they are afraid gaming news will get the wrong idea. That, and they hold their franchises to a very high set of standards. If we want to see more of this side of Nintendo you can’t post misleading headlines about such things. However, if you must, at least refer to the fact that they were joking in the body of your article. A turn of phrase comes to mind, “This is why we can’t have nice things.”

      She’s part of the Hyrule Royal Family so her last name would end up being Hyrule.

  4. It’s a Joke. Mario is NOT officially “Mario Mario”. That was made up for the movie to explain why Mario and Luigi were called the ‘Mario Brothers’.

    I’m pretty sure what he originally meant was “Like Mario, Link has no last name”. However, because he is also well aware of the “Mario Mario” Joke, he said “Link Link” in jest.

    It is embarassing how many ‘Journalists’ and countless individuals across the internet don’t know SARCASM when they hear it.

    Here is a hint. When someone laughs after saying something, it’s probably a Joke, not meant to be taken seriously.

    1. As I wrote over. They probably did this on purpose for the commentfield activity and views. They’re probably fully aware of everything. But I won’t defend it. It’s lame to try making this facts without explaining it’s probably a joke.
