Nintendo’s first live stream of Breath of the Wild provided Zelda lore buffs with a fair share of head-scratching material. Perhaps chief among them is the resurgence of the Koroks from The Wind Waker.
Although we’ve yet to hear a confirmation from Nintendo, the little forest spirit’s presence suggests that this game takes place in the Adult Timeline. This is definitely Hyrule, though, given the appearance of the Master Sword. Could the Great Sea have been drained? How did the Master Sword end up out of Ganondorf’s head and into its pedestal? Fingers crossed, we’ll hear more about the game’s place in the timeline before the end of the week.
