Journalist Emily Rogers has shared a series of rumors she has heard about the new The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U.

The rumors are:

  • Rumor #1 Yes, Zelda is coming to both Wii U and NX. I confirmed it with a ton of people. You can choose which one to get. Or get both.”
  • Rumor #2: I heard from multiple sources that you can choose between a male or female as your playable character in Zelda.”
  • Rumor #3: There is voice acting for most of the characters…except Link.”

The first rumor on the list isn’t very hard to believe. In fact, a credible leak back in December nearly confirmed as much.

As for Rogers, she has proven herself reliable in the past, being the first to talk about the new Paper Mario game for Wii U. Even so, Nintendo World Report’s Neal Ronaghan has reportedly heard similar rumors from multiple sources.
