Could be either, I suppose. My concern is this: The Trident of Power. Ganondorf picks it up sometime after OoT, his chronological first appearance. Since he picked it up during 4SA, the Four Swords games would have to be in one timeline or the other and definately before LttP and the Oracle games unless the events of 4SA happened in both timelines. So, in what timeline did he obtain the Trident of Power?
Hyrule and Termina may be two different worlds, but they seem to be fairly easy to get back and forth from. Seeing how Skullkid was able to befriend the Giants in Termina, then meet Link in Hyrule, then steal Majora's Mask in Termina, and then steal Link's Ocarina in Hyrule again.

It's also possible that the Skull Kid knows the way. After all, only Skull Kid and Link are known to have gotten to and from Termina, and Link didn't exactly get there on purpose, so he may not know where the entrance is. Further, there's only been one game with reference to Termina, Majora's Mask, while other alternate worlds have had more mention, possibly indicating that Termina is harder to reach than the other ones.
Ok this has bugged me forever. So I had to dig up the first Zelda Speculation Tread I came across.
Wind Waker Clearly takes place after OoT. But the game is rather scitzo on wwLink's Relationship to OoT link.
The King of Hyrule, on one hand, flat out says that wwLink has no Connection to OoTLink (or Link is not Linked to Link)
However the first shield is the culprit of the other side of this: Grandma mentions hanging the family shield on the wall being a tradition. The Item description of said shield says that the Hero once used it.
The family shield has a different design to the Hylian shield from OoT, leading me to believe that the shield is not key to the Legendary Hero, but the tunic and Master Sword are (awaits remake of original games to introduce Master Sword and confirm).
Also, legends are crazy. Legend says that Zeus controlled the clouds. Legend says that Jesus died for our sins. Legend says that Hitler had one testicle. Legends are nuts.
The trick is to find the truth behind the legend, which in this case is moot, because we are dealing with a fictional legend within an inconsistent fictional series. Being cynical again, aren't I?

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
