I guessed as much. Part of me was kind of hoping it would be, because I like seeing the overall big picture, but I'm fine with either.

The axe is the Fire Rod? That's kind of awesome.

I'm glad we could see some footage of someone who actually knows how to battle in a DW game - this footage makes me excited.

Looking at the video again, it looks like there are slots for 9 characters. There could be more added later, but if not, we already know more than half of the characters:
1. Link
2. Zelda
3. Impa
4. Midna
5. That mage-character on the cover (she might not be a playable character, but that's what the cover would indicate)

And, if that's the case, there are four spots left. If this game is true to DW form, though, the villains will eventually be playable, which rounds out the slots for the three main villains and Ganondorf. I hope this isn't the case, because that would be kind of a let-down.

Let's hope that the other 4 slots are for other heroes. Assuming this, I imagine that, for variety's sake as well as for Zelda history, there would at least be a Goron and a Zora. There's already a Goron confirmed as an NPC, so it's a good possibility. They could even be Darunia and Mikau, since they have name recognition. If it is them, there'd probably be a Deku Scrub as well, to round out the triad (I hope not though - I don't see a Deku Scrub doing well on a battlefield). The last spot could go to a Gerudo, since they have an interesting two-bladed fighting style and are awfully acrobatic. If there's no Deku Scrub, perhaps a cameo by someone? Ravio, Groose, Linebeck, Medli (or some other Rito)?

I guess we'll find out as we get closer to August, since that's when everything will leak from the Japanese release.

I am saving up money just in case something comes out over here like that. And if not, well, I'll have more money.

She will definitely be an interesting combatant - I could see a bug-catching net or some kind of swarm attack. I wonder why they picked her, though.

The character on the front of the cover is confirmed to be Lana, an original mage-type character that uses her book to create magical spells and attack.

Do you have any idea how happy it makes me to know that so far there is only 1 male playable character?

Makes Link a pimp.

But seriously, I figured they'd be about equal. There are too many good male and female characters in the Zelda franchise to not split it down the middle.

Yikes...

 

 

 

I have no issue with a heavily imbalanced roster toward the ladies. It's about time some game had some proper representation.

Well, sure, but that makes the game sexist against males. Ideally, it should be split down the middle to properly showcase the power of both genders. Obviously, some games can't do that (Dynasty Warriors, for example, has more males because it's based on a section of history where most females stayed home and didn't fight), but I believe it's worth it to strive for equality in most cases. Going overboard one way or another is not the answer.
