Zelda sporting a new look is always cause for commotion, but mere design change this is not. Everything that Zelda is wearing has a rustic vibe that seems out of place with the clothing we see most people wear in Breath of the Wild. It almost seems archaic. My take: we’re in the past. This is a different Zelda, or our Zelda in an ancient timeline, trying to fit in. Given all the theories about time travel, which is a reoccurring theme in the Zelda games, it’s not impossible.
Otherwise: I won’t entertain the possibility Zelda is playable right now, but only because I don’t want to be disappointed.
