Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

An Action-Adventure game for NES by Nintendo in the Zelda series

Replace six shards of the magical crystal and wake Princess Zelda from her unnatural slumber. A mysterious sorcerer places a curse on Princess Zelda, causing her to drift into an eternal sleep. Link discovers that the sorcerer has fled to the ancient ruin of the Great Palace, and learns that the only way to break the seal on the palace gate is to replace the shards of a Magic Crystal.

  • The mechanics of Zelda II were a radical departure from the original The Legend of Zelda. This direct sequel featured much side-scrolling as well as RPG elements, including experience levels and NPC interaction. Despite these innovations and a decent reception, the series retrogressed to the style of the original gameplay for all future iterations.

Official Zelda Series Timeline Released

Nintendo released a book to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series titled 'Hyrule Historia'. The book contains artwork, designs, and information. It also contains the hotly debated timeline of the series - except this time it's 100% official. In the early 2000s Nintendo of America released this timeline - complete with a warning that this was only their interpretation and the actual timeline remains open to debate. Translator Dan Owsen wanted to upload a draft but Nintendo Japan requested them to cancel the plan - as despite having an official plan in Japan they want to keep the speculation and theories running for the fandom.

The book is currently available in Japanese only however a fan translation has begun. The above image is a translated version of the official timeline provided in the book.
