How Nintendo has drawn Link has changed from game to game. This image references the different stages of his design and sort of shows off how his style varies from consoles to handhelds releases. It seems that the console versions feature a much more adult Link as the consoles have him at a younger age.

I imagine when we get a Zelda game supported by the Oculus Rift Link will be well into his late 30's.

Is this art from game manuals?

Not entirely sure, it may be culled from a few sources like manuals and Nintendo Power art.

Ah, that makes sense. I had forgotten about Ninetendo Power.

..I had forgotten about Nintendo Power?!? How *old* am I now?

You know, for as much of a Zelda fan as I was/am, I just realized that I've not played hardly any of the games! I've only played The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening... that's less than a quarter of all Zelda games.

Yeah, I haven't played many of the modern Zelda's since Twilight Princess and I didn't beat it. It was great, I plan on coming back to it.. Someday.

I'm glad Link got past that awkward no pants stage...
