“Basically what leads Link on this adventure is the Skyward Sword,” said Aonuma. “When that sword is actively guiding Link it actually transforms into a feminine figure. I wouldn’t say that it’s female per se but it’s a feminine figure.”
Yet Aonuma denied that the figure would eventually be revealed as Princess Zelda. “It would be kind of nice to keep this a mystery, but I can tell you right now that it is not Zelda,” he said.
This is from an interview by Official Nintendo Magazine. I am fairly certain most people assumed it wasn’t Princess Zelda, but it is still nice to see them confirm it just to squash any rumors. What I find interesting is how they want to keep “who she is” as a secret, and that while she is feminine, she may not entirely be a female. Whatever that is suppose to mean, right? Sounds like this is a mystery we are not going to get to solve until we have the game in our hands.
