Bloodlines and ancestry is a familiar topic in The Legend Of Zelda. It's perfectly logical that perhaps somewhere along the time line, the chosen hero is a daughter of Hyrule and not a son.
I wanted to entertain that notion and create a familiar 'Link' design, but as a strong female lead. Before this years E3, there was alot of buzz that the next Zelda was to be 'The Great Flood' and it would star a Hero fulfilling Links role, but not a true Heir(And thus failing to prevent the flood). I had that in mind during the design process.
It was a fun little concept to do. I tried to create a brand new design as opposed to 'What if the Link we know now was a girl'. As in this Hero would star in a brand new Zelda game.
BRING BACK THE YELLOW BAND ON THE HAT.
Link To The Past design was awesome!
