Nintendo: Miyamoto Admits Some People Hate The Legend Of Zelda Toon Link Design
Legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto has admitted that Toon Link who has appeared in the fantastic Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks ultimately hasn’t appealed to every Zelda fan out there.
“As for the [Toon] Link, I call it Link-eyed cat. I’ll admit it took courage to enter this design more cartoon. In the end if we took this decision is that the time we really wanted to make a game typical Nintendo.”
“An adventure that represents the soul of our society. So Link is a boy rather usual class, it was completely reinvented with a more streamlined look. Besides, it allowed us to create a real distinction between his adventures on home console and portable. Each has its own identity the coup and that is just fine. So yes, well I know, there are plenty of people who hate cartoon version … but there it is!”

Huh,I could have told you I hated Toon Link 5 years ago. Not surprising. I am a bit surprise to hear Miyamoto admitting it though.

1. Wind Waker was a breath of fresh air... or, fresh water... or salt water, you get the point.2. One thing I hate is an email with an entire sentence or question in the subject line. Why not name it "Miyamoto on Toon Link Reception" and save the details for the message / thread itself? What happened to the ability to write short but meaningful headlines?3. Toon Link was made for cell-shading, and just looks weird in that non-cell-shaded pic above.

I always liked Toon Link. I enjoyed all the games he appeared in as well, including Brawl. But, you know, not everyone likes change.

he'd be a fool to think that everyone loved the Toon Link design, and Miyamoto's no fool... so there you go.

He is speaking to me too. I absolutely detest Toon Link and everything thing he stands for! I wish he would just die already and I hope never to see him in a game again. I mean - why Nintendo to you have to go ahead and spoil eveything: Zelda, Link, Hyrule everything, with this gross and ugly representation?!

? He's adorable. :3 And quite comical too. It's funny how he gets abused in his games. XD

I personally value flexibility in the Zelda series: it's better to think of the Zelda franchise as a loose collection of related myths and legends with some mysterious connections and repetitions across time. I don't want one unified story across all the games, nor do I want one unified look for Link or Hyrule. Wind Waker was wonderful precisely because it gave us a completely different vision of Hyrule long after the other games, submerged under water, and a completely different kind of Link to go along with it.

I honestly think that the games Toon Link has starred in (Wind Waker, Minish Cap, Spirit Tracks) are better than games like Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past.

Anyone who doesn't think Ocarina of Time and Twillight Princess are the outstanding Zelda games are just plain wrong.

I've always hated Toon Link(with the exception of Minish Cap) and my feeling towards that little annoying cat eyed twat shall never change. I say base a game on this Link! ExcUuUUUuUUse MEEEEEEEEE Princess! Definitly more tolerable.

I like every Link except the creepy one in the CD-i games. I don't see why people can be irritated by someone like Toon Link. Get over it, people!

You my friend are deeply flawed as a human being. I feel sorry for you.

So anyone with a different opinion than you is wrong? Well, ok then... :/

It did seem strange at first I'll admit. Wind Waker was such an awesome game anyway.I started to like the design after a while. However I still prefer the look of him in Ocarina and Twilight Princess.
