A mean and moody Link!

A new Wii Zelda wasn't mentioned during Nintendo's E3 conference - much to the dismay of fanboys the world over. However, Shigeru Miyamoto later held meetings with the press behind closed doors, where he revealed that work is indeed happening on Link's latest adventure.

Nothing was shown other than a piece of concept artwork, reportedly featuring a more 'mature' Link.

Could this piece of artwork - currently doing the rounds on the internet - be the picture that Miyamoto displayed at that meeting? If so, who is that mystery character stood with Link?


Thanks to reader Metroid133 for the tip.

UPDATE: Postings on other sites would seem to confirm that this is indeed legit concept artwork. Apparently it's even been rumoured that the girl is a physical incarnation of the Master Sword - interesting....
