Damn then that customized is a little too broad don't you think?

Okay so if that is Link, maybe you can pick to be a male or female Link. That would be a cool option. I still think that this Link is female, I am sure they will confirm one way or the other eventually.

I would love to be able to do that. FemLink would be so cute. :)

Okay, what's the point of allowing you to choose between female Link and male Link if they both look rather ambiguous anyway?

I mean, she wouldn't have to be sexualized, but she should at least LOOK noticeably female. The Link in the trailer arguably doesn't look much more feminine than some pictures of Skyward Sword Link or Hyrule Warriors Link.

I think that's the cool thing though. If Link represents the player, why not let the player toggle Link's gender to further represent the male and female gamers' preference, particularly if they can work it well into the experience? I generally like playing as girls in action games, so this is right up my alley!

I was just pointing out that this Link obviously isn't female. I mean, like I said, there's not much point in him being female if he looks just like male Link in the first place.

Also, saying you should be able to choose Link's gender is attaching an importance to Link's gender. If you there's value in making him female isn't there value in him being male in the first place? Value that would be taken out of the story if the option was added in? I mean, playable Zelda would be fine, a new playable character (who actually looks female, lol) would be awesome as well (Link's twin sister?) But for the story's sake please keep characters' genders fixed.

On another note, I don't think he represents the player so much as gives them a 'Link' into the world. If someone NEEDS a certain gender of character to feel connected to the world, that's their own loss.
