Princess Zelda isn’t the Skyward Sword in new Link adventure

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword producer Eiji Aonuma has told ONM Princess Zelda is not the mysterious feminine Skyward Sword in the latest Link adventure.

Speaking to the mag, Aonuma said the feminine figure is not even exactly female, either.

“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.”

Who the “figure” actually is, he wouldn’t say, but confirmed it wasn’t Zelda herself.

“It would be kind of nice to keep this a mystery, but I can tell you right now that it is not Zelda,” said Aonuma.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword releases next year for Wii.
