The Legend of Zelda series has been in existence for over thirty years. Its first appearance was in 1986. Since then, the character has appeared in many different incarnations. Some characters have been depicted as young children, teenagers, or adults.

In the beginning, the series’ main character was Link. This character has been popular with fans since the very beginning. He has a wide array of cool abilities and a loveable personality.

Despite his coolness, Link has had some insecurities. His soul has been embodied in each game. There have been several debates over whether the sequel would take place only a year after the battle with Calamity Ganon.

One of the main questions fans have is how old is Princess Zelda in Breath of the Wild? In the main game, Link is 16 years old. However, a prequel takes place before the main storyline.

A fan asked if there were any differences between the main game and the prequel. In the first game, Link is nine years old. By the end of the second, he is a matured adult.

Similarly, the prequel is a bit older than the main game. During the prequel, he is still a teenager.

Link’s age has been in question throughout the storyline. Some sources indicate that he is nine, while others state that he is 16. In the Ocarina of Time, Shigeru Miyamoto has said that Link is 16 years old.

Many other Legend of Zelda games do not state the exact ages of their characters. They sometimes use flashbacks to tell their stories, and thousands of years are used to separate events in the storyline.
