Default Concept Art for the new Zelda for Wii

I saw this posted on a site I frequent...it's concept art that was unveiled behind closed doors for the new Zelda on Wii. I don't know what this is all about, but I figured I'd share it because it's really awesome looking.

*edit*
Actually, she strangely resembles the Master Sword, and apparently Mr. Miyamoto told people to 'notice that Link doesn't have a sword'. That opens some interesting possibilities.

I dunno, look at the Master Sword. More like the hilt of the Master Sword...like the jewel in the middle, for example.

Maybe she becomes the sword or gets trapped in the sword and finding the triforce is the only way to release her. That would make a good adventure.

The more I look, the more I see it.

Additionally, the pleated cloak is clearly meant to resemble the Master Sword's hilt guard.

She looks more like the sword if you flip the sword upside down like Link was carrying it so he could reach over his shoulder to draw it. You'll notice that in the image you have the clasp does look like the swords jewel but if you flip the sword her cape is similar to the guard of the sword.

Haha, I don't know why, but that's killing me. XD

At any rate, there is definitely something to this I think. Not a coincidence I'd wager. It is kind of interesting how she's at his back too, which is where a sword would be....and he is kinda looking back there, and he has his shield, ready for battle it seems. I really want to know for sure what t his is all about now.

Flip the sword over and you'll have it. If you look at Zelda, her head and neck are the handle her shoulders and cape are the guard and her body and legs are the blade.
