Eiji Aonuma a confirmé qu’il ne sera pas possible de jouer une version féminine de Link dans The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U & NX), mettant ainsi fin aux rumeurs qui disaient le contraire depuis quelques mois.
“So yes, there were rumors like that, and we did discuss as a staff as to what would be possible if we took that route.”
“We thought about it, and decided that if we’re going to have a female protagonist it’s simpler to have Princess Zelda as the main character.”
“…if we have princess Zelda as the main character who fights, then what is Link going to do? Taking into account that, and also the idea of the balance of the Triforce, we thought it best to come back to this [original] makeup.”
