A Zelda Timeline EXISTS?!
Today I'm going to talk about an issue of huge debate in the Zelda universe. The Zelda timeline. There have been tons of Zelda timeline theories over the years, I personally never believed that one existed and they just made random games with the same characters, a similar objective, and different plots built around the basic Zelda structure. UNTIL TODAY!
According to Eiji Aonuma a timeline does exist. In an interview with Official Nintendo Magazine, (basically Nintendo Power from the UK) he said "Yes, there is a master timeline but it is a confidential document! The only people to have access to that document are myself, Mr. Miamoto and the director of the title. We can't share it with anyone else!"
But what about all of the times Nintendo said that there wasn't a timeline? Were they just being tricky and keeping it under wraps? Or did they just never have a timeline and thought "Hey! Know what would be cool? I know that we've released fourteen Zelda games with no thought to how they fit together, but why don't we just say we have a timeline to make our fans happy." I'm hoping it's not the latter, but we'll see.
Thanks for reading! :D
