That May Not Have Been Link In The Legend of Zelda Wii U Trailer


This morning, Nintendo showed off a teaser trailer for their new Legend of Zelda game on Wii U, highlighting the game’s open-world. In the trailer, a character that looked similar to Link was seen riding atop a horse and doing battle.


Speaking with Venturebeat at E3, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma stated: “No one explicitly said that that was Link.”


Aonuma did not go into specifics or share any other details, although in the past, he has stated his desire to shake up the conventions of the Zelda franchise.


The Legend of Zelda is currently in development and planned for a 2015 release.
