(Hopefully this is a good place to put it :?)
But anyway, I thought y'all might want to look at this.

Don't get your hopes up when you first see this. I was quite disapointed by Nintendo's words, and I cant believe all this speculation came to nothing. But I believe the timeline is out there somewhere.

I always thought the games each had their own Link, because none of the timelines ever made that much sense to me. :?

Fail, Nintendo, Fail. _dead_

You know, I swear I read somewhere that Nintendo admitted they had a timeline for the entire series, they just hadn't released it. It was their way of keeping track of things.

Well, if there is no timeline then how does that explain Ganon directly referencing OoT in WW? Before you fight him he basically explains what he was doing in OoT.

Also, does this mean Zelda 1 and 2 aren't connected despite it being specifically stated that they are?

i kind of like it

Wow, Nintendo. You say that each game represents a different Link, but PH is a direct link off of WW. Nice job there.

i like the split timeline theory (it's the reason why the fist zelda game i am playing is OoT and not zelda 1) >.>

I go with a singular time line, but that's another matter.

Nintendo messed up here for sure, but those saying "you said they're all different yet it's clear some games have the same Link", you missed this part:

Eiji Aounuma (speaking on behalf of Shigeru Miyamoto and others), declared that the Link in each game is a different Link, unless it's made clear that it's not.
Emphasis on the "unless it's made clear that it's not" part.

Its just another retard NoA employee that replyed to him. Im sure that The president of Nintendo(Of Japan not Reggie >_>)((I can't spell his name @_@)) has a Time Line he goes by but he hasn't realesed it. Also NoA lies to you. I emailed them about Mario & Luigi RPG3 coming to America they said theres barely a chance and some other crap but at the SAME time it was even announced for North American release. NoA loves messing with us. @__@

If they are different Links that most definitely have to be related in some way

Each Link is part of the Royal Family.
