Hey, guys… that was totally Link in the trailer for the new Zelda game at E3.
Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma finally put the rumors rumors to rest as to whether or not the character shown in the new Zelda Wii U trailer is actually Princess Zelda or Link.
Via MMGN:

"It’s a rumour," Aonuma said with a chuckle when I asked him about the speculation buzzing around online.
"Actually that comment I made jokingly," he said. "It’s not that I said that it wasn’t Link. It’s that I never said that it was Link. It’s not really the same thing, but I can understand how it could be taken that way.
"It seems like it has kind of taken off where people are saying ‘oh it’s a female character’ and it just kind of grew. But my intent in saying that [was humour]. You know, you have to show Link when you create a trailer for a Zelda announcement."
However, he doesn’t want players to focus too much on Link’s appearance in the trailer.
"I don’t want people to get hung up on the way Link looks because ultimately Link represents the player in the game," he said.
"I don’t want to define him so much that it becomes limiting to the players. I want players to focus on other parts of the trailer and not specifically on the character because the character Link represents, again, the player."

Link or Zelda, all that matters is that this game looks gorgeous and it’s coming out and we should all be excited/thankful.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW CREEPY THIS OLD COMMERCIAL FOR ‘A LINK TO THE PAST’ IS?

Creepy medieval dude muttering unsettling nonsense to you on a subway? Check. Giant armored monster trying to kill you for playing video games on the train? Check. This TV spot for The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past borders on Midnight Meat Train territory. Even the audio alone is freaking terrifying! It’s almost implying that if you play this game, all of these terrible things will happen to you. Who wants to deal with that, really.

I love how it ends the creepy old dude asking the kid “Do I smell fear?” Nah bro, the poor kid clearly just pissed himself. Video games are dangerous.

BRB. Gonna’ go dig out my Game Boy Micro and copy of LttP. I’ll be playing with the lights ON, thank you very much.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Impressions
Hey gang.
Just picked up my copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds the other day and I&#8217;ve been managing time between crazy holiday hours at my day job and sleep to play this title. Not much time to write a full review, and I&#8217;m not too sure if I will since everyone else in the gaming world already has, but here are my impressions of the title.
[[MORE]]
Off the bat, it&#8217;s weird seeing Link not in Wind Waker form. Maybe it&#8217;s just me, but it took a bit of getting used to seeing our hero back in a smoother 3D form.
Definitely gives off a nostalgic trip by revisiting the old land of Hyrule that existed in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, but it has enough new spark to it to give the old land an amazing fresh breath of air.
I&#8217;m really loving how the puzzles in A Link Between Worlds are actually making me feel somewhat dumb in some parts of the game. The nostalgia aspect makes me believe I was a smarter child than I am an adult gamer, being I can&#8217;t figure out half of any dungeons out without looking a guide up on Game FAQs.
The graphics are awesome and the 3D looks pretty great. It&#8217;s terrific to see an updated/old school Hyrule.
Tons of new characters and the ability to visit dungeons in any order at all makes this title a huge expansion from previous reiterations. Definitely loving this new range provided by producer Eiji Aonuma.
The 2D Link/merge mechanism works well in this title. Innovative, though Nintendo seems to love making a bunch of their older characters flat pieces of paper. The ability to merge into walls as a flat Link doesn&#8217;t feel off from the game at all and makes me hopeful for a 2D Link addition to future Smash Bros. games.
This is 1992 in 2013 and it feels as great as it sounds.
Looking to finish this title in the next two weeks. Super happy with this newest addition to the 3DS' awesome catalog.
