How do you think Skyward Sword will connect with the rest of the Zelda games in the series? We obviously know that it is a prequel to Ocarina of Time and that it will deal with forging of the Master Sword. What about its connection to later Zelda titles in the Zelda Timeline like Twilight Princess? We’ve seen that the lettering in some of the shots seems to go hand in hand with Twilight Princess, but we really don’t know much at all. Forum member An Hero of Time from over at Zelda Universe has recently created an image speculating on some things he noticed between Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess.
If you click the image to the left, or simply just read on in the story, you can view a larger version of the image. When looking at the first part of the image, I think the bird symbol appearing as the Hero’s Shade’s helmet is nothing worth noting at all. Similarly, the third part of the image comparing the Skyward Sword logo to the body doesn’t seem important to me either. The bird-like mask on the body of the Hero’s Shade does seem to be something unique. I honestly never noticed that at all before and now that I see it, it appears to have a resemblance to the hawkeye item that you get in Twilight Princess. Why would the Hero’s Shade have such a symbol on his body?

Over the years, Zelda theorists alike have attempted to piece together the Legend of Zelda timeline by pulling from an assortment of various sources including the actual games, the game manuals, translations of the Japanese versions of the text, and of course, quotes made by the developer’s of the Zelda games. Often times there are so many developer’s quotes that seemingly contradict one another, and it can be so hard to keep track of them all. Well, here at Zelda Dungeon, we’re trying make things simple for all the enthusiastic Zelda Theorists, as we have created a Developer Timeline Quotes page, highlighting most of the significant quotes made by the game developers in regards to the storyline and timeline.
Each quote listed showcases the main topic it discusses, the actual quote, when it was said, where it was said, a link to the source where you can get the full context of the quote, and a summary and analysis of the meaning of each quote. It really is a comprehensive listing and I surely hope Zelda Theorists out there find it to be quite useful. If you are brand new to the Zelda Theorizing world, such material might seem rather meaningless to you. However, if you do have interest in learning more about the theory world of Zelda, be sure to check out our Zelda Theory Forum over at our message boards.
