It's supposed to the same Link right? In a Link to the Past he had pink hair, in the new trailer I just watched he's kind of blond. What's going on here? Is Nintendo retconning LttP?

That's just his hat or bad coloring or something. He never had pink hair in drawings.

He never had pink hair.

In A Link to the Past, due to the limited color palette of the SNES, Link's hair was shown as pink, although in official art it was originally an auburn.

So it was officially auburn. Which is not pink. They don't even sound the same. I mean, one starts with the letter p,

Isn't it supposed to be a different Link? I could have sworn Aonuma or Iwata said that in a Nintendo Direct.

That's crazy talk! You can't be two hair colors!

Zelda and Yu-Gi-Oh universes are one and the same -- confirmed!?

This isn't supposed to be the same Link, so of course his hair wouldn't be pink because ALTTP link wasn't supposed to have pink hair either

But I wouldn't be surprised if there were a new game + option that has pink hair or something just to satisfy some people

I choose to live in my happy peaceful world, away from all the naysayers. Just me and pink-haired Link.
