Actually I looked up a bunch of articles and I find that most of the writers they have state that Link stays as a guy. However no such words directly came out of Nintendo’s mouth. In fact their answers to questions are pretty vague and it could be taken in more ways than one. (These guys play it really safe not to mention too much when a game is in production.) So there is still a possibility. The game is still in the works and anything can change. We’ll just have to see what the game is like when they have more to show! Not that it matters but I think it’ll be a nice change for once. B) Although if Nintendo did say it in exact wording feel free to tell me otherwise, with a source link of course.
Hey there! I didn’t exactly go for game development haha I went for 3D for my school. There are schools out there that offer gaming development as a package so do check out if any school close to you offers that. In the end, the school you go to will not matter once you get out in the working field. They hire people for skills. If you’re interested in animating I would go for an animation major. Video games have way more stuff than art in them so if you want to go to game development, they’re gonna throw a bunch of stuff at you (3d modeling, animation, programming, level design, etc) so I recommend doing research on your classes first if you do choose that route, and ask yourself if you wanna do all that stuff! If you’re only interested in making art however, animation would be the way to go. It’s also important to know what you want to do specifically. Specialization is great. Pick one thing you like and be really good at it. Be known for it! It’s also important to practice and make lots of art ALWAYS EVERY TIME AND EVERY DAY. Passion is going to be your drive in this type of career. As long as you have that you will be successful.
