Zelda continuity

Recommended Posts

I've played almost every Zelda game(some of tham many times), so I picked up the Minnish Cap and a friend of mine asked if all the games take place in the same world. I assumed they all took place in the same world thousands of years apart from each other. I just assumed Link, Zelda, and Gannon were all reborn to do battle once again. Alot of the games have the same basic layout on the worldmap. The mountains are usually on the top of the map, either middle or left. The name Hyrule is always the name of the land or town. Windwaker would be the Waterworld version.

You are correct.

Yeah, it's complicated, since some of the Link's are the same characters, but others are different people.

Consumers don't seem to care, so neither does Nintendo.

I really don't give a shit. I like being able to just jump into each game without any continuity bogging it down. It helps I've never gotten round to finishing a Zelda though :)

I just see it as different takes on a common legend, almost perhaps as if these games never really ever strictly happened, and they're just a collection of different stories loosely based on these one legendary theme.

I've always wondered how Mario became a plumber. They should make a game chronicling his struggles to get into the profession.

Oh man, the cross between Yoshi's Island, the old DK games, the old Mario Bros. (as in, not "Super" Mario Bros.), the Super Mario games, all the sports with time travel involved (baby mario and luigi with old mario and luigi!)...

Somebody needs to sort out Mario's continuity! How will I sleep!

Its always the same Ganondorf in the games he's in, but aside from a couple of instances Link and Zelda change over the years. Though if you are looking for a starting point Ocarina is supposedly the first game in the timeline. It doesn't really matter though.
