Hyrule Historia: Visual Timeline Map Recreated

A few days back we posted a translated grid of the Zelda Timeline from the Hyrule Historia book, courtesy of our friends over at GlitterBerri. We recently got sent a graphically enhanced version of this same timeline grid, making it closely resemble the grid that was published in the book itself. You can see the preview image to the left, but go ahead and make the jump to check out a larger version. The actual file that was sent to me was gigantic, but if you want to download it in all its 39mb glory, you can head on over to Mega Upload.

(Note, you can click the image below to see an even larger version, but the full image can be downloaded at Mega Upload)

I’m still impatiently waiting to get my hands on a copy of the Hyrule Hisoria book, which is now available in Japan. We’re also checking for any scans or translations that pop up online and we’ll surely be reporting on them as soon as we hear. Be sure to stay tuned!

Thanks to x7razorback7x for sending this in!

    Basically Link defeats Demise (The Demon King, and sort of original Ganon) Demise curses Link and Zelda by binding them to his fate, or rather they got involved with his fate therefore binding them both to him. Whenever evil arises (Ganondorf, Vaati, Maladus, etc.) both Link and Zelda will be reborn into their respective roles to fight against him and any other evil that can be traced to him.

    Statement A:

    You fight like no man or demon I have
    ever known. Though this is not the end.

    My hate…never perishes. It is born
    anew in a cycle with no end!

    I will rise again!

    The Curse:

    Those like you… Those who share the
    blood of the goddess and the spirit of
    the hero… They are eternally bound to
    this curse.

    Statement B:

    An incarnation of my hatred shall
    ever follow your kind, dooming them to
    wander a blood-soaked sea of darkness
    for all time!
