Game Theory: Dear Nintendo, I FIXED Your Timeline! (Zelda)

SUBSCRIBE for More Theories! ►
I've been theorizing about Zelda for a LONG time! Since the beginning of Game Theory, I've tried to figure out all the ins and outs; all the ifs and maybes. Today we return to the Zelda timeline because I have finally SOLVED it! I have found the MISSING Link in this whole mess of a timeline that makes everything work! Strap in Theorists, this may be our biggest breakthrough yet!

    My only hate with these Zelda timeline videos it that they never have the japan only Satellaview games; known as BS ZELDA. BS Zelda Map 1 can be called the real Zelda 3 and BS Zelda Map 2 can be called the real Zelda 4. 1 BS Zelda game called Ancient Stone Tablets is the sequel to an link to the past but an link to the past real name was Triforce of the Gods.

  30. Fricken

    Fricken5 ימים לפני

    My theory is that there is gonna be a game that solves this. since legend of zelda is the first nintendo game ever made but its near the bottom i think there will be a game later to set breath of the wild there so i think nintendo is working on a game that will put breath of the wild in its place.

    I wonder if the ganon blight you fight in the game was actually created by the yiga clan (the tech looks shieka), and that they made it to look like ganondorf and almost mirrored it

    To be fair, the only reason there _is_ a timeline is because fans wanted one. There really _shouldn't_ be a timeline.
