One question that keeps popping up in interview regarding the forthcoming The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes is where does the game fit with regard to the Zelda timeline? Game Informer chased this up with the director of The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes, Hiromasa Shikata, and you can read his response below.
“That’s a tough question. The Zelda timeline is quite complicated if you look at the history of Zelda I think you can 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, it really is Link Between Worlds. But it’s not – as far as a timeframe – before or after. We haven’t really settled on or said that.”
