IGN asked the famed developer how the latest entry fits in with

, saying these games feel more like myths or legends surrounding the likes of Link and Ganondorf instead of being specific stories with a hard-wired canon.

Aonuma agreed, saying overthinking the Zelda chronology — which begins with Skyward Sword and splits into three alternative timelines following Ocarina of Time — could limit the development team's creativity and vision.

I don't like to put too much stock in the chronology of the series, because from the design perspective, that can kind of box us in.

"I think just as you say, this is a series that really lends itself well to each person playing, then thinking back and interpreting the story elements in their own way," Aonuma told IGN. "We have these major players in each game, with Zelda, and Ganon, and Link, and they each surface and play their roles in potentially slightly different ways in each title.

"But personally, I don't like to put too much stock in the chronology of the series, because from the design perspective, that can kind of box us in and limit where we're able to take the story as we continue making games in the series. And so I do think it's something that is best for people to interpret on their own. And yeah, I was kind of agreeing with many of the things you said."
