    In a recent Game Informer interview, Nintendo legends Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma were asked 51 questions (and gave 51 answers) about The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

    One of them was the burning question of many Zelda fans; does Link have a last name? And the answer is... (drum roll please)... Link! Yes, our green tunic-clad, pointy-eared protagonist is called Link Link. Miyamoto says it's because Link is not human (*gasp!* :O). And oh, it's same with Mario (it's-a me, Mario Mario!).

    Check out the full 4 minute interview below, it's pretty fun, with several trivia revealed by two of the gaming industry's legends:

    Nintendo is the best with coming up with last names.

    I like that he put that 2D Metroid Please note in his top pocket.. I hope he brings it out again in the E3 Direct, that would be a funny joke to pull off.

    That's why Metroid doesn't have a new mainline entry...Nintendo doesn't know what to do with a protagonist that doesn't have the same first and last name!

    You gotta admit that Mario Mario, Luigi Mario and Link Link are really stupid name designs

    They were clearly just messing with him. And he didn't ask the most important question of all about this game: "At what point in your playthrough of Skyrim did you decide to make Zelda into the exact same thing?"

    So, if each Link Link descend from other Link Link, this mean it's literally a chain ...
    nah, it was a joke because of the engrish " Mario Brothers", myamoto think it funny and keep, and now so many time later he are using the same joke with link lol

    Link Link doesn't even sound that bad tbh. It sounds a lot better than Mario Mario.

    Link Link? Link is no human? I believe they were just trolling.
