Aonuma: Zelda Wii U Trailer Had Link In It, But Keep Talking About Female Characters

"Nintendo seems really interested to see if fans want female playable characters in a Legend of Zelda game." (The Legend of Zelda, Wii U, Zelda Wii U)

Alternative Sources
Male or Female Link - I don't care. I just want this game.

anyone who's played zelda games know Link has always been a male who's looked a bit feminine. Nintendo would make an entirely new lead character a female not change Link's gender. Or just make Zelda the lead

How about a co-op of Link and Zelda, now that would be new spin on the franchise.
Personally, I expect at some point
- whether it be in 10 or 20 or 50 years-
Link won't be the traditional Hero of Hyrule.

When that happens or if it happens now, due to Miyamoto wanting to "tip the tea table" (as they say at Nintendo)...

...I will still play and want that game Right Now.

So YES,
I am saying that the Zelda that will be at E3 2064-

I want Right NOW.
(and all those in-between and after)

I'll take a female Link! Maybe they'll let you customize the character this time around. That'd be pretty cool. :)

The outfit may be a reference to that considering how the Gerudo gauntlets differ heavily from the Wind Waker shirt. it may be a clue that you'll be able to customize Link's wardrobe, and in extension maybe even his gender

That'd be so cool. I guess this game is taking the better elements of Elder Scrolls involving customization. Wonder if you can even customize the horse...

There could be the option of being Link, or a customized character.

So, Link is confirmed to be a guy. I'm thinking more than Link will be playable.

i can hear links voice so i knew ,but a playable female character would be cool .
Just put in the choice to pick male or female, i'm pretty sure there's nothing in the Zelda universe that says the hero HAS to be a dude.

Jeez, this guy is being such a tease.

What will happen to the romance btwn link and zelda if link turns female, and nintendo will lose an iconic character if they mess with links gender. I wouldn't mind playing as zelda, if link takes on the role of zelda.
