With the imminent release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, fans are beginning to get a little rabid about the game (myself included). To make matters harder on the (not so) patient Zelda fanatics, Nintendo has been releasing a lot of information about the game as of late, and as more and more members of the gaming press get their excited hands on it, details about Skyward Sword have been spreading around the Internet like a virus. Due to this, gamers have been sharing rumors and theories about the game, hoping to find the cure to their burning curiosity. With fans clinging to every word uttered about the game and meticulously trying to make sense of them, isn’t it about time we do the same?
We’ve been told over and over by Nintendo, Miyamoto, and Aonuma that Skyward Sword is the first game in the Legend of Zelda timeline, but is it really the first in the timeline? Surely we cannot argue with what the creators of the series are saying. If they say it’s the first, then by golly it is! However, while it may be the first of the games so far, is it actually the game that will have no prequels? IsSkyward Sword the originator of the legend of Zelda?
