The official Legend of Zelda Japanese portal has updated with a new page focused on Hyrule’s long history. The page features an interactive version of the official Zelda timeline. Each section includes artwork, a short video, and some nostalgia-inducing music.

The most interesting thing to note is the fact that Breath of the Wild is currently positioned separately from the master timeline. What this may indicate is anyone’s guess. It’s likely Nintendo simply didn’t take the timeline into consideration for their newest Zelda game, which was a radical departure from the franchise’s norms. Or just maybe Breath of the Wild is part of a new timeline from which another thirty years of Zelda games will take their cues. Either way, it’s fun to imagine what may be added to this history page in the future.
