One thing that makes the entire "timeline" theory inconsistent is the fact that items in Twilight Princess show up in the Skyward Sword, but in non of the other Zeldas that came after it.

One example is the Clawshot. Why is the Clawshot in Skyward Sword? If Skyward Sword really is the beginning of the entire saga, then the Clawshot wouldn't have existed back then. And it wouldn't explain why the Clawshot was replaced by the Hookshot (a substantially lower-tech item), only to suddenly reappear in TP.

game takes place in sky

clawshots were made for sky people

regardless some gameplay things are kind of a "don't think about it too much, this is just for fun" sort of thing. I mean, my big question is why did civiilzation apparently die in Zelda 1 and how is it back in Zelda 2?

Items aren't really important to the timeline... This is more of a game mechanic...

Who thinks that in the near future, Nintendo's gonna make some new Nunchuck thing where it's wireless and eliminates the need for the wire. That looks like it would make Skyward Sword a bit more comfortable, after seeing Mr. Miyamoto's demonstration of the game.

Not that I want to defend the timeline, but items really are non-issues. There's no reason sky people couldn't have clawshots just because Hyrule used them in TP era. We are still using hammers today. I'm pretty sure that doesn't invalidate or retcon anyone who used hammers in earlier times. In most Zeldas, there is no indication as to how much time has passed between games aside from direct sequels and Windwaker (which is a regressed civilization due to the flood).

And even if a ton of time has passed, this is fantasy, and you are generally expected civilizations to progress more slowly in fantasy series. Otherwise Link wouldn't still be using a sword at this point.

That said, it would be really interesting to see them show a Hyrule slightly more advanced technologically. Maybe Link Rides a Train did that (didn't play it), but it doesn't seem like it.

I was spoiling myself with all the previous Zelda's and it didn't ruin my enjoyment.
I can't help it. The more info that comes out on this game the more I wanna know all about it.
Btw What's all this malarky about a timeline? Makes about as much sense as a Mario timeline.
Are you guys seriously worried about which story happened in what order?
I just wanna go on an epic quest to defeat evil and save Hyrule or what ever land needs saving.

Zelda 2 takes place in Northern Hyrule. In Zelda 1, Link wasn't there to stop Ganondorf from conquering Southern Hyrule, so everyone had to flee to other regions.

Ganondorf will not appear in Skyward Sword, but the game will touch on the subject of his appearance in Ocarina of Time.

Hyrule is in Skyward Sword, it's below Skyloft.

You know how Fi is the Master Sword... I have a feeling Gaharim or w.e is the Trident of Power.

Edit: There not going to explain Ganondorf's alliance with the King... that kinda doesn't need explaining. But also because this game is years before OOT.

Is there anyone else here who beleives that Ganon and Ganondorf were once seperate entities, and that this game may actually feature Ganon, in big, blue pig form only? Explaining how Ganondorf would eventually be chosen as a host for Ganon? ...Possibly involving Twinrova in the story somehow?

Also @KaiserGX That would be pretty friggin interesting, though considering how different Girahim looks from Phi, I have a hard time seeing it, I hope that doesn't mean anything though, because I would love it if that ended up being the case.

I don't always give myself signatures, but when I do, you just read it.

Phi has a Blue Crystal, and Girahim has one that looks the same but red on his side. He has the Title Demon Lord (if I recall correctly).

On Four Swords Adventures it says something about the Trident in the writings, Ancient Demon Reborn. Whoever gets the Trident becomes the King of Darkness. I think Ganon and Ganondorf (or at least Ganon) is a separate spirit. Every time you see Ganon you ALWAYS see the Trident. I know the first Zelda game he doesn't have it, but he does in the artwork for the game. Then the remake for the Satellite View did have him holding the Trident.

Edit: Also for some reason Ghirahim reminds me of Agahnim.

Note how Zelda's father is named Gaepora. That must mean that the owl of the same name in Ocarina of Time must be his spirit or something. The manual of that game actually says something about Kaepora Gaebora being the spirit of an ancient sage.

It reminds me of the names of the sages in that game being the same as various areas in Adventure of Link.

Yeah, Zeldas father is probably one of the sages in this game. I'm just wondering why he took the form of an owl after he died(?).

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors
