In a recent interview conducted by IGN just before The Game Awards last night, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi left the door open for a playable Zelda in the future. 

When the topic came up, Aonuma said, through a translator “I think there’s always room for thinking about this type of thing and Zelda’s role. And there may be some sort of possibility for something like that in the future.” At this point he interjected in English, “Maybe, maybe, maybe.”



It’s nice that the option for a playable Zelda isn’t something that The Legend of Zelda team has completely written off, despite Zelda having very, very few playable appearances over the years. Time will tell if the team pulls the trigger on the idea in the future, but until then, we’ll have to keep clarifying to our out-of-touch family members that, despite the name of the series, Link is the hero, and he’s a boy.
