    The clothes on the woman around 0:50 have a similar colour palette to Link’s so it is possible to be a female version.

    Perhaps. I think Zelda is the person at around 1:06. I hope you are right because Nintendo succumbing to the progressive narrative will be pretty bad.

    I doubt if they DID do a female link, that they would render long hair like that. They’d have to render it for so many instances and Animations.

    Honestly, despite Nintendo’s track record recently, they’ve started to turn things around, at least with the 1st party titles. I cannot wait for this to release. And probably run like crap on the Wii U, but I still can’t wait.

    What are you talking about? They’ve been putting out all the best titles for ten years straight.

    Breath of the Wild is merely the point where they finally take out open world games.

    pretty sure it’s Zelda not Fem-link, maybe you can play her in post game content.

    I thought slideshows were only supposed to be shown during the development phase.

    The villages look taken out of Twilight Princess. I think I even spied a character that looked like the Shaman from Kakariko Village. This pleases me.

    That shouldnt stop them from making a Princess Zelda game tho
    Taking a refreshing turn without shitting on the franchise

    Yes all that best titles that made the Wii U sell like hotcakes and crush it’s competition.

    Breath of the Wild is merely the point where they finally go back to open world instead of being a shitty npc and puzzle game. I wonder how many words you can read of Malstrom’s blog because you’re triggered into a catatonic state.

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force, how they dropped the Wii U, numerous 1st party games they try to make everyone forget, like the recent mario spinoffs, chibi robo games, ………..
    Oh, I just realized what user you are. And to think I was going to write an intelligent response and get another in return
