Timeline Placement For Breath Of The Wild Won’t Be Clarified
The Legend of Zelda Series has had a lengthy history of astonishing stories that share many related themes and trends. Over the years many players tried to join the stories for each of these games into one cohesive timeline. In 2011, with the release of the book Hyrule Historia in Japan, an official timeline was eventually revealed. Showing a singular story until a three-way split at the legendary Ocarina of Time, each game in the series has been officially placed. That is, until 2017’s Breath of the Wild, which failed to see any official placement on the timeline at launch. Fans have speculated on the timeline since the game was first revealed and many had hoped a canonical reveal would be given after the launch. Unfortunately, it looks like such a confirmation will be withheld indefinitely, at least for the foreseeable future. In the newly released book, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Creating a Champion, series producer Eiji Aonuma provided the following statements.
What do you all think of the decision to hold back information on Breath of the Wild’s timeline placement? Are you in the camp of wishing they would give an official disclosure or are you on the side that thinks the timeline was just shoehorned into the series?
