Reggie Fils-Aime recently appeared on CBS This Morning to talk about the new Nintendo Switch console. During a brief discussion between the Nintendo of America president and co-anchor Gayle King, Fils-Aime was asked to share whether he thinks Link from The Legend of Zelda series is “hot.” He gave an affirmative answer and went on to mention how Nintendo games tend to cater to girls.
King: “Do you find that more girls are playing? And I ask this question because I’ve heard from very reliable sources about Link – the character Link – that Link is hot… Is Link hot to you?”
Fils-Aime: “Link is hot. I gotta say Link is hot. But, yeah, more girls are playing video games and we pride ourselves that we’ve been able to lead that charge – with the Wii, with the DS.”
