The Legend of Zelda art book we told you about last week has now made it to Japan, and according to one fan translation it reveals the official series timeline for the first time.
Previously Nintendo has kept the Zelda timeline secret so we're not sure if this is a definitive timeline or simply one interpretation of it, but here goes all the same.
Split 1: Link defeats Ganon — childhood branch
Split 2: Link defeats Ganon — adult branch
Split 3: Link fails in Ocarina Of Time
Does that sound right to you?
