Confirmed: Ocarina of Time Link is a character in Twilight Princess

For those Zelda gamers out there who love to think that Nintendo actually does have this rich history behind the land of Hyrule and that all of the games are deeply interconnected, then Hyrule Historia is the gift that keeps on giving. While most of the Japanese Zelda fans will have already probed the vast tome of Zelda information already, we English-speakers are having a slower time of it as each page is painstakingly translated for us by fans.

And with the official timeline already revealed, some thought that that was all there was to be revealed. Not so! Zelda Universe forum member The Baton of the Wind revealed last night a connection between Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess that many theorists had been debating over for quite some time. However, now we can easily say with certainty that the Hero’s Shade from Twilight Princess is indeed OoT’s very own Hero of Time.

The Hero of Time didnt really age well then

this is getting more confusing :D but Zelda story and history is amazing. To this day Zelda shows it glory. Zelda Skyward Sword is amazing.

In all honesty, I sometimes wish they didn't bother connecting each Zelda together-in fears of it convuluting everything. I may be one of the few here, but I enjoy the idea of each Zelda having supposedly different characters with the same name, save in Majora's Mask. It always created this illusion of the series being a "perpetual stanza" (if I had more descriptive terms, I would use them) when it comes to certain facets of the series. The reason I can enjoy each narrative as much as the last, despite typically following the "save the princess" and "Triforce", is the molding of different sub plots around 'expected' characters to make them never feel recycled.

Edit: I'm not sure if *see above* was explained enough. Feel free to reply if I need to dive deeper.

thats they way i see Zelda, evry game is sepreat like FF, coneccting them undermines the story IMOO

I love it when developers do these kinds of things

Makes sense.

If you look closely, the Hero's Shade shield closely resembles the Mirror Shield from Majora's Mask. His sword also resembles Majora's Mask Guilded Sword.

Also Ocarina of Time states that when Hylians get lost in the Lost Woods they turn into Stalfos. The Hero of Time must have gotten lost after the events of Majora's Mask and turned into the Hero's Shade, who looks just like a Stalfos.

Lol, see how awesome I am? /s

Wait, so why doesnt anyone recognize him as the hero of time?

mike1up2419d ago (Edited 2419d ago )

I'm not sure, perhaps it is because too much time has past. I think that Twilight Princess takes place roughly 100 - 200 years after the events of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

TP follows the "child link" timeline, right? So would he really have been that famous?

And besides, TP takes place a LONG time after OoT. (The whole "hundred years" thing is a mistranslation, it's HUNDREDS OF YEARS later).

Ezetta2419d ago

You're wrong. It's his ghost, not a Stalfos. The book says so!

mike1up2419d ago (Edited 2419d ago )

Fair enough, assuming that there is only 1 word for ghost in Japanese, and that you have perfectly translated Hyrule Historia yourself... both of which I doubt.

Canary2419d ago

...Not really. There may be plenty of terms of "ghost," but only ONE for "Stalfos."

And, being written in Katakana, it'd be fairly easy to spot.
