Nintendo Finally Releases Zelda Timeline Empty Nintendo Finally Releases Zelda Timeline

on 12/22/2011, 1:28 am
SOURCE: http://kotaku.com/5869993/this-might-actually-be-the-official-zelda-timeline

It seems people were simultaneously right about how Ocarina of Time and how it split the timeline, and simultaneously wrong about it in a way they never could have possibly guessed. The 25th anniversary puts the order leading up to Ocarina as: Skyward Sword, Minish Cap, Four Swords, Ocarina of Time. Afterwards it has 3 branch of points, two of which are pretty much exactly what gamers always predicted. However, it's the new information that makes it all finally make so much more sense.

After link defeated Gannon at the end of Ocarina of Time he gets sent back in time, but time in that timeline continues going forward and it's that the "Hero of Time" Link is not there when that Ganon breaks back out of his sealing which causes the Goddesses to flood Hyrule in an effort to stop him. This leads into the events of Windwaker, afterwhich takes place Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks.

The Link from the end of Ocarina of Time that got sent back in time told a young Zelda what Ganon was planning and four court hylian sages, different from the 7 sages of Ocarina of Time, seal Gannon up in the Twilight Realm before most of the events of Ocarina of Time ever happen. Then this Link gets sidetracked into an alternate dimension adventure in Majora's Mask. Much later Ganon would return from the Twilight Realm in Twilight Princess. Sometime after both of these events would occur Four Swords Adventures (Which has a different plot from Four Swords).

Now comes the part no one could have ever possibly expected. In alternate set of events, Link gets to the end of Ocarina of Time AND GANNON KILLS HIM. After this various armies raise up and fight against Gannon in a century of conflict until they eventually help the the seven sages seal away Gannon in the Golden Ream (possibly not the same 7 sages, thus explaining the race issue some people have always noticed), as explained in the opening events of A Link to the Past. After the Hero of LttP kicks Gannon's ass in the Golden Realm, he goes on a series of adventures which first include the Oracle Games and eventually ends with Link's Awakening. Later a different Link would get wrapped up in the Incidents of Zelda 1 and 2 (with 1 ending with Gannon flat out losing the Triforce of power at its end).

I hope they release the book in English. It is a pet peeve of mine when books resolving series issues like this only ever get released in Japan.

After all these games I hope so :0 but I have a feeling that Link changes in almost all the games (not like OoT to MM n stuff)

Skyward Sword is a Link. Minish Cap is a different Link. Four Swords may or may not be the same Link as Minish Cap. Ocarina of Time is a different Link. Majora's Mask is the same link as Ocarina of Time. Wind Waker is a different Link. Phantom Hourglass is the same Link as Wind Waker. Spirit Tracks is a Different Link. Twilight Princess is a different Link. Four Swords Adventures is a different Link. Link to the Past is a different Link. The two Oracles Games are the same Link as in Link to the Past. Link's Awakening is also the same Link as Link to the Past. Zelda 1 is a different Link, Zelda 2 is the same Link as Zelda 1.

However, the Zelda in Zelda 2 is a different Zelda from the Zelda found in Zelda 1 (the Zelda-II manual claimed she was the original-original Zelda, whom had a sleeping spell cast upon her, after which all later princesses were named in honor of her... meaning the girl link saves at the end of Zelda 2 has been asleep sometimes before Skyward Sword, or a very fucking long time).

This story line is becoming as complicated as Kingdom Hearts' multiple people of the same people, different time lines. D:

in skyward you go back in time and find out zelda is the reincarnation of the goddess hylia then afterwards zelda sleeps in some sort of magical crystal for a few thousand years then you go back to your time to wake her.

but if link woke her up back then then that means zelda 1 and 2 is a dimension where skyward link didn't wake her.....that or she went to sleep again after the events in skyward(she sure likes her naps)
