YouTuber Theorizes Connections Between Zelda Wii U/NX and Twilight Princess

Since its initial unveiling at E3 2014, Zelda U’s story has been shrouded in mystery. Among the handful of hints that have been dropped throughout the past couple of years, most of them revolve around the enigmatic Sheikah.

From recent artwork to the loading screen on the company’s E3 2016 press site, Nintendo seems to be suggesting that the tribe will play a prominent role in Link’s next outing.

YouTuber Zeltik recently shared a fascinating theory regarding the nature of the new Sheikah symbol. He mentions that the pattern surrounding the iconic eye — not to mention the color — is reminiscent of those found in the Palace of Twilight.

Since Twilight Princess’ release, fans have discussed the notion of there being a connection between the Dark Interlopers and the Sheikah. I mean, the tribe’s symbol is present on not only Midna’s helmet, but also her throne.

Zeltik suggests that Zelda U will explore the Interloper War, which many speculate exists in the “Era of Chaos” between Skyward Sword and Minish Cap. Head past the jump for a full rundown of Zeltik’s theory.

Nintendo Launches E3 2016 Press Site, Features Sheikah Symbol

Alongside the recent bombshell that Zelda U was delayed into 2017, Nintendo announced that the game will be the company’s only playable game at this year’s E3. It’s no surprise, then, that the big N’s E3 press site is solely dedicated to promoting Link’s next quest.

Although the website lays out the company’s plans for this year’s show, the real kicker is the site’s main loading screen. It features only a blue Sheikah symbol. Combined with the symbol’s presence in the recent piece of official artwork, it’s safe to say that Impa’s people will play a prevalent role during our next trip to Hyrule. Head past the jump for a better look at the press site.
