It has been confirmed previously that a Zelda timeline does in fact exist. Problem is, we probably won’t ever see it for ourselves according to friend of Infendo Triforce Johnson. According to Johnson, Nintendo feels that if the master timeline was revealed, it would take away from the mystique Â of franchise.
Here is another take fromÂ Dan Owsen of NoA:
Dan Owsen: You know, at one point we had drafted a timeline and wanted to make it available online. We showed it to the guys in Japan and they basically told us that it would be best if we didn’t post it. They do have a timeline that has continuity between the games but they wanted to keep it open for how each player views the chronology of the series. There are a lot of connections between the games, but they do have a timeline that has continuity. It’s up to the player to place all the pieces together.
I have to agree with Nintendo on this one. It would be nice to have an official word on the Zelda timeline, but that wouldn’t leave much room to the imagination, would it?
What do you think? Do you have your own Zelda timeline mapped out in your head?
