Zelda will not be a princess in The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword. That's the word from Zelda producer Eiji Aounuma who explained more about the plot in a recent interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu.
"She's [Zelda] not a princess this time which is something I'll pretty much have to put forth right now in order to talk about this title," said Aonuma.
"She's a childhood friend, but she goes away in the midst of the game and it's Link's job to search for her."
If you've read our Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword preview, Link has to earn the respect of Zelda by catching a bird.
As Aonuma points out it's quite different from other Zelda games. "This game's plot is something like a school drama, you could say. The flying sequence at the E3 demo is Link competing against his classmates. One of them looks kind of a like a bad guy, as you saw, and he shows up in other ways in the game too, since he has a major thing for Zelda."
