[Editors Note: What is up with Nintendo hiring people named so similar to their villians — first Bowser and now Ganon!]
However, in the midst of the quote, Julie confirmed that the upcoming, multiplayer Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, is not cannon, existing somewhere outside the Zelda timeline.
It really depends on what the developer has in mind for the franchises. Sometimes you have Zelda sequels and what we have today with Zelda: Triforce Heroes [sic] is completely different and not in the timeline of Zelda. So, it really depends on what the developer has in mind and what they propose. So, I think it’s more a coincidence that we have all these great franchises that people like for each year. This isn’t necessarily something we will see for all the years in the future.
This is a rather odd direction, seeing how the game this was arguably derived from (The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures) holds a comfortable spot in the timeline between The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS this Fall.
What do you think of this decision? Should Tri Force Heroes, developed and published by Nintendo, be placed somewhere in the Zelda timeline, or should it be lumped together with Hyrule Warriors and The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 DLC?
