    This is apparently what Miyamoto showed on his conference.

    Hmmmm, that looks like the great fairy from Wind Waker. This doesn't look too different from Twilight Princess either. Guess I should really go and play that before this comes out.

    Then request the most active topic to be moved into this section. A picture without any accompanying text is hardly "news". Nothing can be achieved with this topic that can't be discussed in the others.

    Yeah Miyamoto, Link definitely looks "older" here, good job. /sarcasm
    He IS right about Link not holding a sword, that's an interesting omen.
    Oh well. Too early to speculate on this.

    Look at her head, kinda sharp isn't it?

    The spirit of the Master Sword? Maybe that is why Link isn't holding it. Perhaps she is the one who accompanies him, though I really wish they'd let him be alone this time.

    Purely speculation of course, I just hope that we can know more before next years E3.

    If Link was on his own, what would the casual gamer do when they become lost? Other than get off of their fat lazy asses and search GameFAQs, that is.

    They'll use that idea that was leaked where gamers can skip parts in the game.

    The artwork looks nice. Also, when did Miyamoto declare that Link was going to be older in the next game?

    I too think that weird gray thing is something that Link will use in this game.
    Maybe it transforms into a sword or so...
    Can't wait!

    I also believe that the girl is the sword.. morphing into a sword when needed and then going to human form when she needs to talk to you.. like Midna or the Minish Cap.

    An interesting thing I just thought is that, she's stading, not floating like Midna or Navi, so.. she could not just be someone that gives you hints, but also a helper that could be used to solve puzzles (most obvious beeing: you have two switches to stand on.. but only one person lol), this adds something interesting to the game: while she's in human form helping you, you have no sword to fight! Also, this could give the new Zelda a cooperative mode, with the second player being able to join at any time and being a helper, like the Mario Galaxy coop mode..

    Of course that's all speculation.. the girl could be the villain of the game and Link could be fighting using only the shield like Captain America for all I know [​IMG]

    I think shes the sword too. Miyamoto made it a point to say he had no sword. The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was "she is the sword." Of course at the time I was doing it jokingly. But after looking at all the patterns on the girl its pretty obvious. Feels very minish cap-y. After all this time the master sword was ALIVE!!!!! I'm just wishing no one leaked the picture because now the wait is going to be even worse.

    I want the Fierce Deity however I like the current concept but I don't it would matter which hand uses the sword because if the zelda games are in different eras then the characters genetics does not need to be a lefty every time.

    I don't want her to be the sword [​IMG]
    She looks too much like the fairy queen (the one that gives you the fire and ice arrows in Wind Waker) so I'd rather she's just a companion or something.
    Maybe have her be the main character, solving puzzles and distracting enemies so that Link can progress through the dungeon.
    THAT would, IMO, be a more satisying experience than "Bitch shut up and turn back into a sword."
