There has been a long running question about Link's gender in the upcoming Zelda game. Some thought the first appearance looked like a woman, but we've learned since that that probably isn't the case.
However, that doesn't mean players won't be able to play as a female Link according to a new rumour. This comes from Emily Rogers (via Destructoid) who has a track record of Nintendo scoops. In a tweet, she says that multiple sources have said that in the new game you will get to choose between a male and a female Link.
She also said that, as some have come to expect, that the game will show up on both Wii U and NX. On top of that, she also said that we could expect full voice acting in the game, except with Link of course.
None of this is confirmed remember, but there is precedents for leaks here. At the very least, this is pretty interesting to ponder.
