The Nintendo Knight
- Aug 1, 2014
Ah, good point about the 100 years thing. Maybe it's NES Link then? I still think Temple of *Resurrection* is an odd name if he's just sleeping, unless it was the Big Sleep. It's possible they resurrected SS Link 100 years prior to BotW, but that's extremely speculative.In a cutscene seen during the demo, it says that Link has been asleep for 100 years. The only way it could be Skyward Sword Link if it is post SS and pre Ocarina of Time, but the temple of time is there in the demo so I'm thinking post OOT.
With this logic it could still very well be after Twilight Princess, as well as "Zelda 3". What can't it be after TP?
I liked all the things you've pointed out.
It could theoretically be after TP (in nintendo's bull**** timeline anyway) but again it's a hard sell since they'd have to pretend everything never happened or retcon FSA out of canon entirely, since Hyrule is wiped pretty much off the entire map by Calamity Ganon (which also happened in the NES original). But it is EXTREMELY SUSPICIOUS they made an entire video titled "The NES connection". Wolf Link is an amiibo, and the other two franchises which put amiibo as canonically elements implied the player themself summoned them with the amiibo (Fates and Smash Bros, the former of which made Smash Bros canon to FE) which implies a Nintendo Multiverse to some degree, meaning since it's an amiibo Wolf Link can be summoned into any timeline. If you don't like the explaination of it being amiibo itself that summons him, notice he's beamed in by the Shiekah Slate, which WE KNOW has some control over time and could probably summon him from another timeline entirely.
All of this is moot to me personally since I consider the timeline Below in my signature canon, which places nintendo's DT order after FSA VVVVV look below. But it still works even by HH standards, in fact, it works in BOTH this timeline and HH (which is a whole other topic and I've ripped apart every reason it can not be correct probably three times already, even ALBW contradicts HH
On that note, it's probably not the Temple of Time from OoT unless they moved the Master Sword to the sealed temple as in the relocated Master Sword theory, it could be a completely new ToT. It's possible the Sacred Grove has been the Temple of Hylia this whole time and the Master Sword was moved back to it, which would make it POSSIBLE this is the OoT ToT, if not unlikely due to it's absence in all other games sans WW.
