Hope its better too :D

Yay @ "there is a master timeline"!

Redrum0592700d ago

why does link look older then he did in acorina of time?

KruLLit2700d ago

It's not the same Link as in Ocarina of time.

cool cole2700d ago

That's just weird to even think about.

Game-ur2700d ago

But I thought events and setting don’t carry over between Zelda games.

Seijoru2700d ago

Its always been the same planet and general area, why do you think every game begins with the Legend of the Hero of Time?

Seijoru2700d ago

1. Skyward Sword
2. Zelda 1
3. Zelda 2
4. Link to the Past
5. Ocarina of Time
6. Majora's Mask
7. Wind Waker
8. Twilight Princess
Is how the timeline goes. In my Opinion.

nightfallinicedearth2700d ago

That's just pretty much how they were released, well besides the skyward sword. Plus, there are a lot of Zelda games missing from your 'timeline'.

Minish cap speaks of a hero and king called GUSTAF in green clothing. This is where the legend comes from that The Hero wears a green tunic.
However, Gustaf never had a cap. In [Minish Cap], Link is the FIRST to wear such thing( even though it was a magical talking cap), thus the complete image of link was told in legends as we know him now.

Therefor Minish cap should be the first in the story line.
If there is any of course.

Windwaker and TP are both on a different line btw.

gustaf? cool that an old swedish name and 8 swedish kings was/is named that

spooky2052700d ago

My order would be (based on the master swords location)

1. skyward sword (creation of master sword obviously has to be the first.)
2. Ocarina of time (a temple is built to house the sword the temple is intact.)
3. Twilight Princess ( The temple is weathered and beaten but still intact.)
4. link to the past (temple is long gone but master sword is still intact in the woods.
5. and i dont know about the rest. They have to come after or possible before link to the past when the temple is long gone because in all the others the master sword is found in the woods. Not sure where handhelds fit in. But based on the master sword alone that would be the order.

swice2700d ago

That is...a very interesting theory...hmmmm. I need to find my thinking cap

AWBrawler2699d ago

Everyone knows WindWaker is at the end,cause hyrule drowned and its closer tothe pirate age than midieval, so thats just wrong. Wind Waker was the end ofthe series unless they mention otherwise and they remade hyrule and all those pirates mysteriously vanished

homer2699d ago

What about Phantom Hourglass? That was a direct sequel to WW.

AWBrawler2699d ago

What I mean is Wind Waker and Phantom hourglass take place after Twilight and OOT, because old hyrule is dead, and unless they have trains and steamboats, the other games take place before these

"“Yes there is a master timeline but its confidential document!” explains Aunuma-san. “The only people to have access to that document are myself, Mr. Miyamoto and the director of the title."

can't wait for SS

Forbidden_Darkness2700d ago

There must be a huge reason why they wont release it, maybe a story arc that will explain something so significant that it will blow our minds

Agent Smith2700d ago

They should just release a Zelda encyclopedia.

Spenok2700d ago

Agreed, a Zelda encylopedia would be awesome.

eagle212700d ago

OMG. Can't wait to play this. :)
