This came from Official NIntendo Magazine spending some chat time with Eiji Aonuma.
“Yes there is a master timeline but its confidential document!
The only people to have access to that document are myself, Mr. Miyamoto
and the director of the title. We cant share it with anyone else! I
have already talked to Mr. Miyamoto about this so I am comfortable in
releasing this information – this title [Skyward Sword] takes place
before Ocarina of Time. if I said that a certain title was ‘the first
Zelda game’, then that means that we cant ever make a title that takes
place before that! So for us to add titles to the series, we have to
have a way of putting the titles before or after each other.” - Eiji Aonuma
I get a brain freeze everytime I think of Zelda games being in chronological order, but this could be the start of something more stable.
