    Shigeru's face in the last panel is sufficient enough to fuel my nightmares for a few weeks

  2. Drake148 on November 28th, 2011 3:07 pm

    or months

  3. Hyze on November 28th, 2011 3:10 pm

    Looks like his song…

    *sunglasses*

    ..ran out of time.

    YEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

    ..well I gave it a shot.

  4. Skrist on November 28th, 2011 3:22 pm

    Well we got LoZ timeline done.
    Now someone do Kingdom Hearts! Square Enix uses 7 branched swords. :D

  5. TransPM on November 28th, 2011 3:24 pm

    looks a bit like Guy Fawkes

  6. MasterLuigi452 on November 28th, 2011 3:26 pm

    ib4Miyamoto'sfaceisnewRedfield'sface

    On the side note, Miyamoto, it's not a secret anymore.
    Even Nintendo Power team managed to make Zelda Time Line and published it in their magazine.

    On the second side note, nice use of Zelda 1 reference.

    Also, Minish Cap between Skyward Sword and OOT? Isn't Minish Cap the Wind Waker Link's timeline? Skyward sword is supposed to be the prequel to OOT, I call shenanigans.

    And this kids, is why Ben drowned.

  11. Wetmang on November 28th, 2011 3:32 pm

    I knew it! The Master Sword is a metaphor for Shigeru's cock!

  12. Alpar on November 28th, 2011 3:33 pm

    Downside: You were killed at the epitome of your gaming genius. After years of being such a hardcore Legend of Zelda fan, you were betrayed by the father of all videogaming, never to reveal the gift your life had to offer to dozens, hundreds, thousands, to millions around the world.

    Upside: You were killed by Miyamoto with the Master Sword he used at E3. At least you're not going to have to down a dumber death when you meet people in the afterlife.

  13. Alpar on November 28th, 2011 3:37 pm

    CSI Miami jokes? In my Nintendo comics?

    Well that poor boy's reflexes weren't quick enough to have heard nor seen that coming quick enough. In other words, I suppose his body…

    *shades*

    Wasn't ready.

    YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

    …and now to declare that in comparison to you giving it a shot, for my joke, I'm going to GET shot.
    It was nice knowing you. Let the Polar Bear Community in Africa know I still love them.

  14. AuraBlaze on November 28th, 2011 3:39 pm

    I was going to hire the guy to help me research the million plot holes in the Crash Bandicoot series. Curse you, Shigeru!

    I was thinking the Happy Mask Salesman.

  19. Link Lab on November 28th, 2011 3:56 pm

    I agree that Minish Cap is not between SS and OOT but as for it's final placement, I'm not sure where it would be. Sometime after Spirit Tracks does seem to be the most likely but…..actually, I'll leave it there since I could go on for hours on the timeline.

    Also, WHY WOULD YOU POST THAT PICTURE?!?! That's almost as horrifying as my nightmares about Navi. Almost.

  55. VyseRogueKing on November 28th, 2011 7:00 pm

    Minish cap is the first of the four swords trilogy. According to Eiji Aonuma, a man who has worked on the series since Ocarina of Time, it was intended to be the first. (This was said before Skyward Sword) However because of the many ties it has to A Link to the Past, some aspects of the games that follow the wind waker story as well as being a prequel to four swords creates a very hard place to set it.

    My opinion is that the tale of the four sword happens to be either after the wind waker due to the master swords absence (which is currently lodged in a certain someone's head) and anything before the creation or knowledge of the Master Sword would make Hyrule a very different place. Or that the 4 sword trilogy cannot even be place in the timeline due to it being way to obscure with the details in game. But just my opinion. I believe the minish cap to be the haziest of the timeline. It can fit anywhere and nowhere.

  56. VyseRogueKing on November 28th, 2011 7:13 pm

    It is a generally accepted theory among my friends that most if not all the events of DBZ as experienced by the Z fighters were started or at least affected by Piccolo because of accidentally telling Vegeta and Nappa about the dragonballs. So many things would have turned out differently.

    Actually, it was revealed in the cutscene after Zelda fell off her bird into the tornado, when he was explaining what had happened to Headmaster Gaepora, that Link uses sign language. Furthermore, it was revealed when he snuck in to Zelda's room that Zelda loves Tingle more.

    I always thought Wind Waker was quite a ways later, considering Hyrule has sunk into an ocean that never seems to be mentioned at any other time. Also, it's obviously hinted at that the Koroks were originally Kokiri who evolved into the wood nymph like Koroks in Wind Waker.

  82. PortalMan118 on November 28th, 2011 10:35 pm

    In the spanish version they are called kyus, i tought they were a pokemon because they only say "kyu".
    On a side note, I don't wanna look stupid (more than i already do) but i don't know where that sentence came from (no, i will not buy a game, i'm broke because of skyward sword)

    In the original Legend of Zelda game, a moblin says it and gives you rupees for finding the secret hideout.

  90. VyseRogueKing on November 29th, 2011 12:37 am

    I'm not sure which part you're referring to but I was talking about Minish Cap. Wind Waker is hundreds of years after. Probably in the adult timeline and yes the Koroks are most definitely the Kokiri. Also the Rito are the evolution of the Zora.

    No, Miyamoto is the Elegy statue.

    Nintendo, why did you try to make a realistic looking depiction of Miyamoto as a child on the N64? You shouldn't have done that.

  108. KingStarscream on November 29th, 2011 9:50 am

    Four Swords was said to be the earliest in the timeline when it was released, then Minish Cap was a prequel to that. Nothing has been said to refute it, so Minish Cap is (possibly) the most likely for the start of the timeline, so far anyway. As for Four Swords Adventures goes, that's a sequel to Four Swords, NOT a remake/reimagining. FSA also has elements that put it before ALTTP (how before is up to debate). Particularly of note is the Trident of Power that Ganon wields -- it shows up in ALTTP, LOZ, both Oracles, and Link's Awakening (sort of).

    Case in point: Minish Cap is most likely still the earliest so far, but Four Swords Adventures can take place anywhere before Ganon starts using the Trident. In the case of hazy continuity, I just fall back on creator intent.
