Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma told VentureBeat that the character we saw in the new Zelda trailer was not necessarily Link, saying, "No one explicitly said that that was Link." If not Link, who is it? Leave your theories in the comments below.
UPDATE: False alarm, everyone. Aonuma clarified to MMGN that he was kidding about that comment:
Actually that comment I made jokingly. 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.
