8pm-10pm, Panels II
Nintendo finally revealed the official timeline for The Legend of Zelda, but that doesn't mean the debate has ended. Come learn just how the games' actually connect, and be prepared to discuss and argue over the finer points of the series' chronology.
Basically, the plan is to begin the panel with an overview video that explains the evolution of the timeline with each new release, and then it will shift over into revealing what the official timeline is and how the games actually connect. After that, we'll go over a few points of contention, and then turn it over to the audience to raise their issues or express their thoughts on the timeline. I am going to also try to bring almost all of my Zelda materials for reference (manuals, guides, boxes, other documentation) in case we need to fact check something since there won't be interwebs in the panel room.
Also, the plan is to give out some "prizes" to some of the best participants. One of these will be a copy of the Hyrule Historia - the Japanese Zelda encyclopedia that revealed the timeline and contains a ton of other cool info and artwork.
