Sorry Nintendo, we've decided that Link is officially a girl

These latest comments don't represent Nintendo's stance on the matter. Remember that last year Aonuma stated that Link could be a girl but Link is primarily meant to be a blank slate avatar for the player.

Isn't the game already mostly made, and revolves around Link splitting into 3 versions of himself?

This isn't like just replacing a sprite, the game is revolved around a palette swap for god's sake.
Read the PR statement in the OP.

Its not Link splitting into 3, but a prophecy that calls together 3 heroes who are all male.

I prefer him to be a Boy as the devs intended.

Is you want badly to play as a female character ask for a new character.

To this day people who don't play video games but kinda know about them will say to me "Oh, Zelda, that game where you play as that girl in green, right?" whenever the games come up.

Might as well make it official.

I still can't believe that guy pulled out the "Some of our employees are _insert minority here_ and they don't seem to mind!" card.
