Apologies for such an extended leave of absence and limited updates, but my school schedule has been particularly hectic this summer and is shaping up to be the same if not worse now that the fall semester has begun. However, I will be doing all I can to make time for ZimP in between the classes, homework, job, relationship and friendships / fraternity that I have going at the present time. But enough of all this about me, and back to the topic at hand: Zelda. So, when I last wrote for ZimP, we discussed the recently revealed new title for the next chapter in the series, Skyward Sword. I will elaborate more on this topic and put it into perspective from a broader view to try and trace the possibilities facing the Zelda series as a whole in the coming years. Let us then proceed to where we have left off in the series with its most recent additions.
First we have Twilight Princess, which came out in late 2006 and seemingly continued the story of the so-called “Child Timeline”, one of the two timelines created at the conclusion of Ocarina of Time in 1998. In this story, we learn that Ganondorf’s attempted coup of the Royal Family of Hyrule failed (largely thanks to the Hero of Time’s warning Princess Zelda and her father of Ganondorf’s coming attack at the end of Ocarina of Time), and he was subsequently arrested, put on trial, and sentenced to death at the infamous Arbiter’s Grounds, home to the relic known as the Mirror of Twilight.Click here to read the rest of Zelda’s Future
