Please stop posting that article as a confirmation that the character is male.

The article where Aonuma supposedly confirms Link is a male is highly suspect. It is from a site that no one has heard of, with no actual sources, and Aonuma has been incredibly quiet on the matter to every other publication. The Game Informer interview basically contradicts that one from some random Australian site with no credibility and actually makes it seem more likely whatever character that is is a woman. Stop posting non-credible sources as fact to further whatever you want to believe, please.

It's a luscious mix of words and tricks, that let us bet, when we know we should have folded.

No other sources except for the fact they interviewed Aonuma. It's a real, legitimate site.

Doesn't matter if it's real or not since that's inevitably what the result will be anyway.

Nah it's just a newer interview and the Link is female thing got tiring fast so it was better to just reveal and let players focus on discussing about other aspects of the game.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I've literally never heard of that site, and in contrast with the Game Informer article the whole tone and the info within seems highly suspect. There's no reason Aonuma would be tightlipped with big publications and then tell this info to ONLY some small australian website. And no producer would purposely silence debate and controversy about his game, especially for no real reason other than "Wouldn't want people thinking its a girl!"

Agree, plus the australian site's interview is worded very strangely, like it's taken out of context. In this case I'd rather trust GameInformer.

I could literally make up an interview with Aonuma right now, especially if I was working at some small site no one has heard of. You act like this sort of thing never happens. Especially with the possiblity of sexism being involved.

It's a legitimate website, just because you haven't heard of it in America doesn't change that fact.

I'll garuntee you that Link is NOT a girl in this game, you people are terrible at speculation, most of you though that this pic:

Was proof of him being a girl because he appears to have boobs, but if you actually look at his chest, this is just not the case, that's part of the gear he's wearing...
