Nintendo revealed its highly anticipated game, Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild, at its E3 conference. Also Nintendo revealed that they considered Princess Zelda to be the main protagonist of Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild, but the idea was rejected, however there is a possibility in spin off Legend Of Zelda games.

Now series creator Shigeru Miyamoto has spoken up and said that Link will always be the hero of main Legend Of Zelda games and it will not change any time soon. However, he did left the possibility of a spin off with a female character open.

In an interview with Gamekult, Miyamoto made it clear that Link will always be the hero of classic game series.

We clearly talked with the team to make a game centered about Sheik, so I cannot say it is impossible to see something of the sort in the future, but in the classic games in the series, Link is the hero and that will not change. For the rest, you have to be patient and see what happens!

Also Zelda producer, Eiji Aonuma, explained why Princess Zelda could not be the playable character in Legend Of Zelda games.

If we have princess Zelda as the main character who fights, then what is Link going to do?” he said. “Taking into account that, and also the idea of the balance of the Triforce, we thought it best to come back to this [original] makeup.

During its E3 press conference, Nintendo showed off one hour of Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild footage, and many fans feared that they have seen too much/ However, Nintendo clarified that, what they saw at E3 was just 1 percent of the whole game.

It certainly makes sense that Nintendo does not want to replace their hero for their long running franchise, and it is interesting to see that the company has not ruled out the possibility of spin off Legend Of Zelda games with a new hero.

No release date has been announced for Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild, and the game will release for Wii U and NX in 2017.
