Official Zelda Timeline Released by Nintendo

by Mickey DeLorenzoDecember 22, 2011

According to a fan translation at Kotaku, the timeline is actually comprised of three parallel universes, all of which are created due to Link’s actions during and after The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

If Link fails in his quest to defeat Ganon, the events of A Link to the Past come to pass. However, if Link wins the day, the timeline splits in two distinct ways. The Wind Waker branches off from the future timeline where Ganon ruled for seven years while Majora’s Mask follows on from OoT’s ending of Link back in his boyhood village.

So, when its all mapped out, the official timeline looks like this…

1. Skyward Sword
2. The Minish Cap
3. Four Swords
4. Ocarina of Time

Timeline A: Link is Killed by Ganon in OoT
5A. A Link to the Past
6A. Oracle of Ages/Oracle of Seasons
7A. Link’s Awakening
8A. The Legend of Zelda
9A. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Timeline B: Link Defeats Ganon in OoT, Returns to His Childhood. Timeline Continues From the Past
5B. Majora’s Mask
6B. Twilight Princess
7B. Four Swords Adventures

Timeline C: Link Defeats Ganon in OoT, Returns to His Childhood. Timeline Continues From the Future
5C. The Wind Waker
6C. Phantom Hourglass
7C. Spirit Tracks
