Nintendo releases official Zelda timeline, everyone finds out that series director Aonuma is a huge dork.
After years of speculation by fans worldwide, Nintendo has released an official timeline for the entire Legend of Zelda series. The mere existence of an official timeline is surprising, considering the fact that many of the games seem to contradict each other or re-tell the same events in different ways, but not only does an official timeline exist, it’s also batshit crazy.
The timeline is part of a Legend of Zelda encyclopedia recently released in Japan, produced by current series director Eiji Aonuma. Aonuma apparently digs speculating on the same stuff nerds around the world have been trying to piece together for years. You can see the full timeline after the jump, but as a fair warning, it’s about as straight-forward as Inception.
