GameSpot is reporting that Legend of Zelda protagonist Link was named "Hottest Video Game Character" by Out magazine, purported to have the "highest circulation of any gay monthy publication" in the US. According to the magazine, "when darkness enshrouds the land, Nintendo's sexy farm-boy-turned-wolf sets out to save the day in this upcoming game. His weapons: a sword, a bow, arrows, and kick-ass grooming skills."

So often we hear about how hot game vixens like Lara Croft are, it's refreshing to see a male character get some props for their looks.

Zelda fans of all sexual prefences will be able to play with Link using their Wii's when Twilight Princess is released at the end of this year.
