Exactly, no guarantee for another FS game, or whatever type of game was originally planned to retell the FS backstory in detail. For this reason, I think we shouldn't wait years for such a game to come, but just accept that TMC is the game which the FS BS refers to.
Why should we accept something that is clearly not the intention of the creators? There never were any plans for a game between TMC and FS, but that doesn't mean important events can't take place between them. We don't need a new game to tell us that (although it would be nice.)
That's also possible, yes. But it's the most unimportant line in FS' backstory, anyway.
Well, if they ever make a game about FS' backstory, it would probably mean that the Hero lived with the Minish for some reason, and that's kinda important I think.
I'm not changing the canon fact that the legend known by the time of FS told such a story, I'm just interpreting this legend in a way it matches up with TMC and other games. It's essential to realize that the legends in Zelda games are only canon in that their words were passed on like that, but that's far from saying everything really happened like the legends tell! In fact, we fans can interpret the intro legends like we want, and I'm fully convinced that the developers want us to make our very own interpretations of them.
And why would you do that? We have been given no reason to believe the FS legend is wrong in any way, so I don't understand why you would assume it is.
The desert pyramid has absolutely nothing to do with ALttP's pyramid, not even the exterior architecture bears the slightest resemblance. The pyramid in FSA was built in Hyrule by the ancestors of the Zuna tribe, whereas the Pyramid of Power in ALttP is standing tall in the Sacred Realm, being the resting place of the Triforce
Ganon can transport things between the Light World and the Dark World. This includes the Pyramid of Power (Duh!). And why wouldn't he? It's the perfect base of operations and resting place for the Triforce.
and place of gathering for the Seven Sages.
Not much left of that in ALttP...
You might also call it Temple of Light.
Interesting to hear, but what makes you think that? Remember, no existing Zelda game can possibly take place after TWW/PH - that is canon by King Daphnes saying, "But this land will not be Hyrule... It will be your land." ..Oh, and Daphnes isn't telling a legend, just to make sure my own words can't be used against me.
That is a matter of interpretation. Some people chose to take the King's words (far too) literally. I do not. Remember that the King said this as a reply to Zelda's plead for him to join them, and then think of how he says that "He has lived bound to Hyrule." So basically, the King said the new land won't be THE Hyrule that he was King over, but it could still be "Hyrule" to Link and Zelda.
What does it have to do? The Graphical Style? But nothing more really. FSA in particular is striongly tied to ALttP.
What are these ties to ALttP you speak of, then? I, for one, think the fact that Hyrule is an island sort of points to a post-apocalyptic-flood placement.
That's why I believe Vaati is reborn in FS BS as a wind mage, something he wasn't in TMC.
Reincarnation is unnecessary in this case, as Vaati is never actually said to die in TMC (And not in FSA either, BTW). And as for him becoming the Wind Sorcerer, well, I'd bet the Palace of Winds and the Wind Tribe have something to do with that.
Hell, he might just have found the Wind Waker lying on the ground or something.
The King told Zelda not to name it Hyrule. Plus, neither Tetra nopr Link are tied to Hyrule, so why would they call it like that?
We WILL find it! The land that will be the next Hyrule!
Yeah, why would they, huh?
