Talk:The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
If you go to zelda.com (I think it's the official site) and go to the encyclopedia, look under P and find "Pendants of Virtue". It will say:
"The Pendant of Courage, the Pendant of Power and the Pendant of Wisdom are collectively known as the Pendants of Virtue. When Link returned from his adventure in Termina, hundreds of years had passed in Hyrule and the Master Sword was hidden within the Lost Woods. To re-prove himself and demonstrate that he was worthy of the Master Sword, Link had to collect all three Pendants of Virtue."
They say a lot of things. Its not necessarily canon so much as it is their way of trying to explain things.
This game is my fave out of all the zelda games!

Placement in the Timeline
This would be interesting if this Link was the Oracle Link, it would place OoS/OoA right in between LttP/LA and LoZ/AoL, and my timeline would be perfect!
- And why is timeline stuff on this page anyhow?? The section for Ports and Remakes reads like a timeline argument. If someone tells me this is official, I'll leave it alone. If not, I'll rewrite this after lunch.Axiomist 20:08, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
Just to let you know, I added that OoT was made as prequel to LttP, so its placement became unclear only after the release of Wind Waker! I also deleted the reference to Link's Awakening. Yeah, I know, it was probably made as a sequel to this game, but it's not 100% sure, as Miyamoto said it could take place anytime after OoT, so if you want to talk about LA, do it on LA's timeline section.--Kombatgod 09:47, 16 February 2011 (EST)
Question about the All Pages page on the left side. Why do we have 3 A Link to the Past links that all the lead to the same page? --Josh 21:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
- Those are redirects. They are for when people search for the game in the search bar and they don't type it exactly right.Matt (Talk) 22:36, December 8, 2008 (UTC)
Hello everyone! I recently came upon a translated Japanese interview of ALttP. I saw it on Kotaku and it gives some insight into the development of the game way back when. Here's the URL: <http://www.glitterberri.com/a-link-to-the-past/the-men-who-made-zelda>. The interview is quite entertaining as well. Give it a read if you like. :3 UnknownEnigma 01:40, 1 June 2011 (EDT)
The timeline placement section mentions that Link in ALttP, OoX and LA are all the same Link. It also mentions that OoS comes first over OoA. Did Hyrule Historia confirm any of those specifics? The Goron Moron 03:11, 4 January 2012 (EST)
- This was confirmed by Hyrule Historia: <http://www.zeldainformer.com/2012/01/hyrule-historia-translations-reveal-new-information.html/>--Password 03:27, 4 January 2012 (EST)
Thank you Password. Also I just want to point out that I don't really want to see the timeline section being outright replaced again. There was nothing wrong with the old section, and I frankly found the "newer" one to be badly written. I have since gotten the older section back. If someone has a problem with it, I'd prefer they take it to the article's talk page first, seriously. The Goron Moron 16:59, 4 January 2012 (EST)
