Lately I was thinking about Zelda Wii and certain rumors that may or may not be true. Then a crazy thought occured to me: If we assume the rumors are true, mainly the parts about it involving time travel and faeturing the Hero of Time from OoT, could it be that the creators are trying to establish a second timeline split. Most likely that will not be the case, since that would be treading the same paths the did before and would confine the creative flow of the game's story just to fix the timeline. And would it really fix the timeline at all? Surely it would clear up some descrpencies TP created in the CT. However is this even neccessary anymore if OoT is no longer thought of as the IW and reincarnation basically being canon thanks to ST?
Still I think it would be interesting if thet could retcon TP's retcons by setting the ALttP/LoZ story arc in yet another prong of the timeline split.
Pre OoT - (FS games?)
AT - OoT ------------ TWW --- ST -- (FS games?)
CT - OoT/MM --- TP ------(FS games?)
CT2 - OoT/MM/ZWii ----- (FS Games?) ALttP/LA --- LoZ/AoL --- OoX
Theorist have tried implementing multiple timeline splits before, using OoA as well as the other time Link traveled to the past in OoT. But this would be something more concrete if they actually go down that path. Still my gut tills me ZWii will be a complete hard reboot of the series.
