The Correct Zelda Timeline?

Lately, "Hyrule Historia" have made up a interesting Zelda timeline which is supposed that it is correct, but why? I personally think it is incorrect and a lot of Zelda fans also think it is incorrect because sincerely it really doesn't fit each game with another and it has no sense at all!

This is the timeline they made up: http://bit.ly/sD18a8

Now, I really don't get parts of the timeline and I think I have made a lot of research. Now this is one of the questions you have to think and analyze:

  • Why is Four Swords Adventures after Ocarina of Time? Shigeru Miyamoto clearly said it was before Ocarina of Time.
  • Another thing is that why did they thought the hero of time was defeated? It has no sense to split the timeline into three different parts if Shigeru Miyamoto said it was splitted only into two parts not three.
  • Mainly all the timeline the only clue is "Ganon is Revived" and thats why they put them together but they don´t have more clues to fit them at all! Also in the Adult Era it says: Ganonsorf is sealed but then do you remember when Link is sent back to time? Well nobody is there to save Hyrule so that means the Sages flooded Hyrule and finally when it comes to time Ganon escapes from the realm, not revived as it says in the timeline.

I really disagree with that timeline, but anyways as they say it is the correct one, I think I need to investigate more and review it again, leave all of your thoughts of the timeline in the comments section!

Back-up YouTube Channel

Hello guys! It's been a while since I last posted, don't worry, I'm still alive! And for you to know, this is post #50! We've been on for a while, right? Anyways, I hope you're enjoying the articles ZeldaMasterfull has been writing, expect some more from him (and me) soon. Onto the important stuff, I have made a new back-up YouTube channel that will be dedicated solely to Zelda walkthroughs. It's kind of like that old site we had, Zelda Realm Walkthroughs, on YouTube. All the walkthrough videos we upload to the main channel will also be uploaded there, so basically it keeps use safe in case something goes wrong with the main channel. Anyways, you could check it out here, and it's called ZRWalkthroughs. The walkthrough videos are uploaded there first, so subscribe to watch the videos before anyone else. So make sure to give it all the support you give the main channel, and expect loads of A Link to the Past videos up soon!

Important Lessons in the Legend of Zelda

In 9gag.com I saw an interesting post about The Legend of Zelda which was quite good and true. You really need to think on the moments while playing that game and think what you have learned so far in the series that you can use in daily life. An 9gagger with the account called "Tentaclehentai" posted this image about some important lessons from the Zelda series that you actually learn and use in life, and its actually really good and true.

How will Twilight Princess look in Wii U?

Since the Wii U was announced a lot of Zelda fans have been wondering how the series will look in HD. As the Wii U now launches full HD (1080p) fans have made some pictures about how the graphics will look... but not only fans!

Nintendo Everything made some pictures on how will Twilight Princess will look, the pictures seem really clear as well as all the textures from the game. Nintendo Everything also stated that the games should be more natural and the movements will be more realistic.

Here are some images:

The Legend of Zelda Timeline Part 1: "The Creation of the Master Sword"

The Legend of Zelda series have been a great and hard puzzle to solve, the timeline until now is unknown, but Shigeru Miyamoto already stated that the timeline was made before starting the series, so this means there is a specific timeline to follow and today I will talk mainly about the order of the games and why they are first or the very end in the timeline. Remember this is made by me, and my thoughts on the timeline, I will try to specify as most as possible and I'm not saying this is the correct timeline.

The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword: This game is the starting of the series, first off because the Master Sword wasn't still created instead we have the Goddess Sword (which is then turned into the Master Sword) another thing is that at the videogame´s back box it says: "The Birth of the Legend" which in other words means that this is the starting of everything, another fact could be the planet wasn't still discovered, and there are no humans in the earth, also mentioning that the civilization in Hyrule does not have enough technology (like in Skyloft).

The Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap: In the introduction cutscene of The Minish Cap it says: "A Picori appeared from the sky" that means Link from Skyward Sword which came from Skyloft and reached the planet. Also the civilization is still the same as the one in Skyward Sword! But now humans are habitating the whole world. The Master Sword still is not present in this game, instead we have the Picori Blade which is the "important" and main sword in the game.

The Legend of Zelda Four Swords: This game is connected with the Minish Cap, as well there are not much technology, but this time the same Link picks up the "Four Sword" (in other words the upgraded Picori Blade) and this multiplies Link by four! then he continues his journey and re-battle the main villian from The Minish Cap called Vaati and finally kills him.

The Legend of Zelda Four Swords Adventures: The game has basicly the same mechanics as Four Swords but now for the first time a new enemy appears called "Ganon" (the pig) which is defeated by Link and his multiple clones! Then the Four Sword is putted back to the pedestal and finally the story ends, Shigeru Miyamoto said that The Minish Cap, Four Swords and Four Swords adventures were before Ocarina of Time in which I will talk about right now!

The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time: This game is the most important part in the timeline because it messes it completely up! First off, it splits the timeline into 2 parts which are called the Child timeline and the Adult timeline. I will talk about them later as we progress, but now let´s talk about why is Ocarina of Time in this place. As the Master Sword is already created in this game we surely know that Ocarina of Time is after these four games, even though Shigeru Miyamoto also said that only three games were before Ocarina of Time and that they are The Minish Cap, Four Swords and Four Swords Adventures, as we have a clue that Skyward Sword is before the Minish Cap I think we need to say they are four games before Ocarina of Time, and also Link opens the Gate of Time (in which was closed in Skyward Sword) which means it was the first time they opened the door to get the Master Sword so at this point and so far we are correct in the timeline!

As I told you, the timeline will now be divided in 2 parts called "Child Timeline" and "Adult Timeline", each of them has different games. Ocarina of Time split the timeline because as you saw Link did go to the future leaving behind his parallel world, then Zelda sends Adult Link (with the Ocarina of Time) back to his parallel world, but Zelda still continues her life so they exits two parallel worlds (Child timeline and Adult timeline in this case)!

Low Site Activity

Hey there guys. As you have noticed, site activity has been at an all-time low. We are writing about two decent articles a month, and we have too much updates, right? Well, let me explain a bit to you so you could understand the reasoning behind the low site activity. First of all, the YouTube channel is getting big. We have mailbags, more videos, and other great things like that, and I really want to keep it going. Of course, this site is the priority. But I am also getting loads of staff requests every week, and hoping the new staff will pick up. Unfortunately, they are not proving to be very reliable. Anyways, I am also working on getting us a domain name and completely new website builder. Once we do that, site activity will boom again! For now, I will try to have at least a post or two each week. Sound fair? I hope so. Stay following, Zelda fans!

New Staff Member: Hylian Shadow

What up you guys! I am Hylian Shadow. I am 12 years old and live in the USA, and I have been a Zelda fan since I was 4 years old. My first Zelda games were Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. I am a proud member of  Operation Moonfall, a group of people who email and contact Nintendo to try to get Majora's Mask on the 3DS. I have played all Zelda games, except for Skyward Sword and Minish Cap. I love Zelda because it is a great adventure about a boy who goes on a journey to save the world. My favorite Link is the Hero of Time Link from Ocarina of Time because he was so well-developed and he had to leave his only friends to save the world, and he also got a lot of screen time. I enjoyed playing him very much, but I wish Nintendo focused on one Link and not many Links. If you would like to contact me please use Skype (check the Staff page to find my Skype).
