History of Hyrule: The Official Legend of Zelda Timeline

Posted by Drew Steimel on

Did you know there was an official Nintendo Legend of Zelda Timeline? A historic map of how all the Zelda games line up in time? I thought they were all tall tales told over the generations and spread by word of mouth, ever changing, yet remaining the same? That's what we were all told in the 80's and 90's, right? At least that what I thought we were told, until someone went back in time they changed our timeline and the Legend of Zelda history forever and put The Original Zelda for the NES in the Era of Decline. It's very much like the Bearenstein Bears Experience.

Here is the Timeline found in the Nintendo Book 

The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia

What do you think of this official Nintendo Zelda timeline? Please share this by clicking on the share buttons at the top of the page and see what your friends think. Does it cheapen the experience or does it make it more real? Does this timeline even make sense to you hard core Zelda fans?

You can still own all the Zelda Games in the Timeline!
