Zelda Timeline Revealed by Nintendo

Post by Fusion »

...and it makes even less sense than we originally thought.

If you don't want to get spoilers about where Skyward takes place, avoid the first box.

Before the Split:
Hidden/Spoiler:
Skyward Sword
Minish Cap
Four Swords
Ocarina of Time


Ocarina Branch A: Failure
Hidden/Spoiler:
A Link to the Past
Oracle of Seasons/Ages
Link's Awakening
The Legend of Zelda
The Adventures of Link


Ocarina Branch B: Return to Childhood
Hidden/Spoiler:
Majora's Mask
Twilight Princess (Heavily implied to take place at the same time as Wind Waker)
Four Swords Adventure


Ocarina Branch C: The Future
Hidden/Spoiler:
The Wind Waker (Heavily implied to take place at the same time as Twilight Princess)
Phantom Hourglass
Spirit Tracks


So as you can see, we're still missing quite a few events. :P

The good news I'm taking from this is that Majora's Mask must still exist in A and C.

Oh, and if you want a spoilerific chart there's that too:

Nope, they actually released a book with all the information in it this week. It was barely marketed and its existence was only revealed earlier this week, but it's official.

In that case, I have no idea as to what they were thinking with adding a third branch...games are supposed to end with the good guy winning most of the time, right? So it's a bit odd that they'd throw in that branch, but other than that, the order of the games actually makes sense to me; might take a bit of thought and imagination, but it makes sense for the most part.
