Aonuma: Breath of the Wild will not allow you to change Link’s name

YOU become Link!

Dystify has made us aware through his Twitter account that players won’t be able to change Link’s name on Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild:

In a YouTube interview published by LooksLikeLink, Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that you won’t be able to change Link’s name in Breath of the Wild like you are able to do in past games.

Aonuma reiterates that the reason behind this is because he wants you, the player, to become Link, rather than the player being the ones that goes through the journey.

I cannot say this is entirely accurate and could be just Aonuma’s way of saying that the reason he doesn’t want you to change the name is because of the voice dialog where characters are calling Link by name. Having them call you Link but the character feature a different name would fee impractical.

Why do you think we won’t be able to change Link’s name this time around?

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be launching the same day as the Nintendo Switch, on March 3rd.
