The newest trailer of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword had some interesting new footage in it. The most notable addition was a split-second image of a girl, pictured below, whose identity has yet to be revealed.
We’ll have to wait until the game releases on November 20 to know who this mysterious gal is for certain, but that doesn’t stop us from speculating. Here are a few prime candidates for who this girl might be. Read the descriptions, then cast your vote in the poll at the bottom of the page.
Though Fi being a sword spirit thing doesn’t exactly support this notion, the placement of this girl in the trailer near a depiction of Fi has us wondering. The criss-cross pattern on the girl’s arm is also reminiscent of Fi’s diamond pattern.
The Sheikah have already made their mark on Skyward Sword in the form of the harp we’ve seen in past trailers, which looks very like Sheik’s instrument from Ocarina of Time. Their similar features also lend to this theory. Impa’s appearance has been known to change from game to game, so maybe this is her newest incarnation.
This one might be a long shot, but compare the faces of the mystery girl and Lord Ghirahim – they look eerily similar, don’t they? We’re not sure at all what this could mean if she is somehow related to Skyward Sword’s main baddie, but we’re not counting out the possibility just yet.
What do you think of our speculation? Did we miss any candidates? What role do you think this girl will play in the story? Let us know in the comments below!
