I love this in a way that is nearly sexual. Canon is a prop. Worldbuilders throw out their own rules every single day. New show runners and movie makers and fiction creators cherry pick what they consider canon EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. “Because that’s how it was” is the lousiest goddamn excuse of all time, and it can die in a fire.
It’s Zelda herself. Nintendo made it a point to hint that the character in the trailer wasn’t Link, and for every reveal of Zelda featuring Link as the protagonist, it always features him wielding The Master Sword and Hylian Shield. It’s only fitting that for a game featuring Zelda herself, they’d feature her signature weapons: a bow and magical arrows. It’s her weapon of choice in every single game where she has to fight. She uses them in Smash, she uses them in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors, she uses them in Wind Waker in the final battle against Ganon, etc.
The first arrows she fires are fire arrows:
But then, she switches to this:
And, those could be ice arrows, but I’m 99% sure they’re light arrowsinstead, and the trailer ends there because Nintendo doesn’t want to give away the effect of the arrows hitting and making it too obvious that it’s Zelda.
zblaster has also pointed out that she’s wielding the bow and arrow like a right-handed person. Link is left handed, and only right-handed in TP and SS because of the controls. Even if the game supported the Wii Mote, it would be pointless to show off right-handed wielding because the main control would still have to be based on the gamepad (not everyone has a Wii Mote, but every Wii U owner has a gamepad). She’s wielding that bow and arrow exactly how she wields it in every other game: right-handed. It’s not a super solid theory, but something to consider.
