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.

Creative Director of Assassin's Creed Unity, Alex Amancio said a female assassin character was originally planned, but was dropped due to resource constraints:

It's double the animations, it's double the voices, all that stuff and double the visual assets, especially because we have customizable assassins. It was really a lot of extra production work.

The animation director of Assassin's Creed 3, Jonathan Cooper responded to this statement on Twitter saying it would only a day or two of work, not the 8000 animations Amancio has claimed.


Head to 21:37 to hear what Amancio has to say for yourself. What do you think, is "more work" a reason to not have a female character? Do you care about gender representation in games?
