Zelda News: THIS is Nintendo’s Confirmed Legend of Zelda Timeline
Before the wars begin, I did not create this. It was taken directly from Nintendo’s upcoming art-book which has a 30 page section dedicated to explaining how the games fit in with one another. Even though this is the “Official Timeline”, I’m sure quite a few people aren’t going to be pleased with it (including myself). Anyway… don’t you want to see it?
Ocarina of Time (Split in to three time lines)
A: Where Hero of Time Fails
B: Where Hero of Time Wins (sent back 7 years)
C: Where Hero of Time Wins (present)
Link to the Past
Four Sword +
I’ll be updating the image gallery with the scans from the artbook. N-Never mind. I've uploaded all of the preview pictures here. Bye ~
and isnt it "where hero of time failed/s" instead of "where fero of time fail"?
As for me, I satisfied by this timeline. Now there are three separate timelines to go by just like there are three triforces ^^
@BountyHunterReturns That's why I'm so against the official confirmation of the timeline... There's no puzzle anymore. We can still fight about what game goes where but there's no point to it if we already have an answer.
I can understand how the series can be split three ways but I don't like that A Link to the Past comes before the Oracle games, Zelda 1, and Zelda 2... Unless the theory of two different Ganons exist. I just can't see one of the split timelines starting with "And the Master Sword sleeps forever"... That completely limits every other game in that timeline >.>
Wow Ninty, you were never into extremely mature, dark and serious themes but DANG!! Failure? That means people gruesomely died and stuff... how come we never got that in a Zelda game...? (Mild deaths don't count)
Minish Cap – Vaati is born/becomes evil/is sealed by Link
Four Swords – Vaati becomes unsealed/is resealed by Link
**** Lots of time passes, Link is successful and is sent back in time which means that the Sacred Realm does NOT turn into the Dark World.
Four Swords + - Vaati resurrected, Ganondorf reincarnated/Vaati = gone forever?/Ganon=sealed.
This poses the problem of the Four Sword Link being completely different from the Four Sword + Link. Also, if it takes place in this timeline, the Dark World does not exist even though it obviously does in the game.
