Zelda Producer Hints We Didn't See Link in Zelda Trailer
« on: June 10, 2014, 02:08:00 PM »

Well, if that wasn't him, then who was it?

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/37708/zelda-producer-hints-we-didnt-see-link-in-zelda-trailer

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma hinted about a possible twist in today's Zelda Wii U trailer.

When asked why Link wasn't wearing his iconic green tunic in the battle scene seen today in the trailer, Aonuma simply replied to VentureBeat, “No one explicitly said that that was Link.”

Is it possible that Link won't make an appearance in this game? Or perhaps we just haven't seen him in action yet. What are your thoughts? Leave comments in the talkback below!

I hope it's Zelda.

As do I. We're long overdue for Zelda to actually be playable in the series named after her, outside the CDi games of course.  And hopefully it's not just a fake-out like "well, here's the 5 seconds of the game you play as Zelda inbetween 60 hours of Link!"

Maybe he just named his character something different at the start of the game?

I don't think I'm the only one that thinks of the posibility of this game being a direct sequel to Skyward Sword. Not only because iof the art style but because of how Skyloft pretty much gains access to the lower lands beneath Skyloft.

Link's kin perhaps? I don't know why, but the first thing that came to my mind was his daughter. That might be pushing it. I can see it being Zelda, but the character design looks perhaps like the child of the two if anything. God do I feel like I'm treading fan-fiction waters right now.. But what else could it possibly be!? This Zelda hype is already messing with my ability to function, let alone understand logic!

I thought there was something a little... feminine... about link in that trailer (which is saying something.)
I hope it's Zelda.

The character displayed in that trailer didn't have a sword and the horse was absolutely not Epona. Zelda would make perfect sense in this case, in which case I wonder if we'll be seeing some sort of duality between the two similar to Spirit Tracks.

I put my money on Link's twin sister we never heard about but somehow she was always there just to further screw up the time line. Otherwise it's just crossdresser link to make up for the other fiasco from last month...

Interesting comment. The character did look more feminine compared to all the other Link's we've seen. So I wouldn't be surprised if it was Zelda or a sister or someone brand new.

the only case in a zelda game that I can think of where another person other then zelda helped link in combat that could be similar to this is this one.


Perhaps they plan to revisit the idea of a sort of resistance group type thing to have multiple playable characters.

But if we're revisiting zelda conventions then perhaps we will see zelda in a less royal setting (even SS gave her a seemingly lofty position), She is literally another girl in the land of hyrule who just so happens to be involved in some divine mess.

It's Raiden.
MGS canon and Zelda canon one and the same. God what have we done.

It's Link's long, lost son, coming to avenge his father's death only to find out that long ago he had fallen to the dark side.

Who is this "Link" character?  When I play a Zelda game, the main character is always named "Ass".

Seeing how it didn't show anyone actually controlling the character, it's very likely a cut scene involving an NPC (perhaps Link's brother, whose encounter with that monster is what sets Link on his quest).
