Game Informer asks about the story and timeline placement of Tri Force Heroes
GI: What is the basic story revolving around Triforce Heroes?
Shikata: The story takes place in a world that is not Hyrule. It's a kingdom that is sort of fashion-obsessed and in that kingdom, an event happens involving the princess of the kingdom –
GI: Is her name Zelda?
Shikata: No. The king, of course, wants to solve this problem so he puts a general call out to the kingdom for heroes to assemble, and who answers the call, but Link and that's the beginning of your adventure.
GI: Where is Triforce Heroes in the Zelda timeline?
Shikata: That's a tough question. The Zelda timeline is "complicated" and if you look at the history of Zelda you will see there are three branches. I can't really designate which one of those branches we're looking at, but as far as the design itself, we looked to Link Between Worlds. But it's not – as far as a timeframe – it's not before or after. We haven't really settled on that.
GI: Does it take place in the same universe or world as a Link Between Worlds?
Shikata: With the history of Zelda we have these three parallel worlds. I can't say which one it's on/in at this point.
