Its amazing how you can now go underwater to discover a view of a lush underwater world filled with coral and giant, brightly-colored fish.

Also Link has the ability to breathe while swimming underwater so he never runs out of breath and he doesn't even need a blue tunic, zora mask, zora armor or an air potion +



What are your thoughts and opinions about this?

Also vote in the poll please: What do you think is the best game out of these 3 open world games and why?

    Yukta I have played Zelda 2, I found it a bit boring to be honest so I watched some Youtube videos of it instead. I haven't played Hyrule Warriors yet but I would like to.

    You should play Zelda Majora's Mask. Its when Link is 14 and he's looking for Navi in the Lost Woods. (In Ocarina of Time, Child Link is 12 and Adult Link is 19).

    In Majora's Mask you can transform into a Deku Scrub, a Goron, a Zora, a Giant and the Fierce Diety Link. There are loads of different masks to wear. Loads of side quests and side dungeons. You can explore a huge swamp, a snowy mountain, a vast ocean and a huge canyon. There are also gold skulltula houses to explore too. And there is a huge farm where you can race dogs and you can also ride Young Epona. There are new horse racing challenges too.

    Majora's Mask wasn't hard to beat. I really enjoyed playing it when I was a kid.

    You also need to play Four Swords Anniversary Edition, Four Swords Adventures, Triforce Heroes, Tingle's Rosey Rupeeland and Tingle's Ripened Balloon Trip of Love.

    Ah the classic debates about Link's age in Ocarina of Time. This goes back to the years of 2002 on the old Gametalk website. People argued for hours on the forums about Link's age.

    However guys. I can assure you that Child Link is 12 years old. He's too big to be a 9 year old or 10 year old.



    He is taller than the old woman in Hyrule Market Town.



    He is almost the same height as Dampe the gravedigger.

    Child Link is obviously 12. A 9/10 year old is not tall enough to be nearly as tall as a fully grown man and be taller than a fully grown woman.

    In Ocarina of Time Child Link is 12, Adult Link is 19.

    In Majora's Mask Child Link is 14, Fierce Diety Link is 19.

    A fully grown adult man is around 17 to 18 (Or in rare cases, 18 and a half) >>>>> rounded up to 19 years old

    A 19 year old fully grown adult man has a muscular adult manly body, a full beard and wisdom teeth.



    In the UK though most people have been brainwashed to think that all 16 year olds are fully grown men, even most qualified doctors. And some people with the geeky personality actually think everyone becomes a fully grown adult on their 15th birthday. But some people like to believe its 25, 35 or even 38. Its Hardcore Geeky Personality!

    But normally girls reach their physical peak around 15 to 17 (early developers = 14). And boys normally reach their physical peak around 17 to 18. (early developers = 15/16). Or in rare cases 18 and a half.

    So in other words Canada knows the right age of adulthood which is 19.

    Yeah but I wasn't taller than my grandma until I was 13 though and she was short with bad posture.

    Although I was still shorter than my mum until I was 15 and I was still shorter than my dad until I was 18 and a half.

    Child Link is 12. Link picked up the Master Sword and slept for 7 years. Adult Link is 19. Its not Rocket Science.

    In Ocarina of Time we have Child Link which in Iwaka Asks is stated to be 9... but in the official Nintendo guide, it says he's 12.

    In Wind Waker it said that OOT Link started his journey at the age of 12 years old and made it a tradition on Outset Island when children reach the age of 12 years old.

    At the start of The Wind Waker, Link is given the Hero's Clothes to wear on his birthday, which are to be worn by the boys of Outset Island upon reaching the same age as the Hero of Time when he set out on his journey.

    "Link as he appeared in the Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass, with big eyes and an expressive face. He lived peacefully on Outset Island until a bird captured his little sister and he came to her rescue. In The Wind Waker, he had to crawl, press up walls, and the like. His green clothes were worn on his 12th birthday and are the lucky outfit of the hero of legend."
    — Trophy description in Brawl

    "Today is a day to celebrate! It is the day that you become the same age as the young hero spoken of in all the legend."
    - Link's Grandmother

    I will go with the official sources.

    Cruinn-Annuin they have obviously made a mistake on the Amiibo description. During an interview Iwata Asks for Ocarina of Time 3D, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Link is about 12. Although in previous interviews Miyamoto has stated that Link is 9 or 10. Seems like the old man is confused and can't make his mind up.

    But officially Child Link is 12 and Adult Link is 19.

    By the way Brandy, just out of curiosity did that youtube video work for you? I've been wondering if the youtube videos actually work or not since this website was resurrected.

    In Wind Waker it said that OOT Link started his journey at the age of 12 years old

    That's a lie. It doesn't say that anywhere in the game. I just looked through the script of the game and did a ctrl F for "12" and "twelve" and even "dozen" and none pop up. It doesn't say it in WW at all. It just says "The same age".

    and made it a tradition on Outset Island when children reach the age of 12 years old.

    Can't believe I'm going to argue this but in the WW timeline Link disappeared and never came back. He doesn't discuss his age with anyone in OoT and practically nobody knew of his origins or where he came from except himself. They most likely chose an arbitrary number.

    — Trophy description in Brawl

    This is true. The trophy description does say that. However Brawl is not the official decision maker on everything. It says Diddy Kong is DK's "little buddy" and isn't his nephew. While in other Rare games it sometimes says they're related and sometimes not. It also says Wolf O'Donnell knew James McCloud which isn't shown anywhere in any of the game (most likely got mixed up for Pigma).

    Also it's funny how you're willing to say that Brawl is the "official" source but that the creators themselves and the amiibo description aren't an official source.

    Diddy Kong can still be Donkey Kong's nephew as well as his little buddy and trusty partner like the Smash Bros game's trophy descriptions say. A nephew can mean other things to you and not solely just defined as a "nephew".

    "Before the Lylat Wars, team Star Fox and Star Wolf shared a long and bitter history with one another, despite mutual respect. It was believed that Wolf had somehow been involved in the apparent death of James McCloud, who was Fox's father. " The history between Wolf O'Donnell and James McCloud is explained here:
    https://starfox.fandom.com/wiki/Wolf_O%27Donnell

    Young Link is 12 years old like it says in the trophy description in Brawl.

    Eiji Aonuma has confirmed this. Yes, the age of Link in Wind Waker has been subject of debate among fans, due to the cartoon style of the game and also his grandma's words, who says we reach "the age of the hero". Smash Bros Brawl claimed that Link was actually 12, but some people did not believe this because the game wasn't considered canonical.

    Well, it turns out that this question had already been answered in 2002, in the Zelda Box's Guidebook released exclusively in Japan.

    In the words of Eiji Aonuma:

    "Link’s supposed to be about 12 years old, and instead of imbuing him with the wisdom you might expect to find in an honors student, I wanted to create a Link that put a lot of energy into solving problems and getting out of the sticky situations he found himself in."
    https://www.glitterberri.com/the-wind-waker/zelda-box/character-commentary/the-main-characters/
    Eiji Aonuma is the producer, director and project manager of The Legend of Zelda series.

    The words of Eiji Aonuma are much more reliable than some faulty amiibo description.

    It doesn't need to state every single detail about how the Kongs are related to eachother.

    "Wolf appears in the Lylat Wars Comic with the rest of Star Wolf. His role is much smaller compared to Pigma and Andrew. Star Wolf first appear when they ambush the Star Fox team at the Asteroid Belt, but piloting superiority beats Wolf's team back with Fox hot on Pigma's tail for his treason towards his old team. Wolf intervenes the chase to let Pigma escape, and threatens to send Fox to see his father, to which Fox concludes the rumours surrounding Wolf's involvement with the mystery over James McCloud's fate."

    Source: The Lylat Wars Comic is a comic created in 1997 by Nintendo of Europe



    The true nature of Wolf's "rivalry" with James McCloud remains one of the Star Fox series' biggest mysteries. Wolf's age during the events in Star Fox 64 was stated as 19 in the 1997 special issue of Nintendo Power, indicating that he must've been a young man when he knew James.

    Well Young Link in Ocarina of Time is the SAME AGE as Link in Wind Waker (which is 12) therefore

    Who said it does? Although to describe who Diddy Kong is it's not right to just call him "DK's buddy".

    According to that comic

    The Lylat Wars Comic is a comic created in 1997 by Nintendo of Europe and drawn manga-style to retell Star Fox 64's storyline

    Many things happen within that comic that doesn't reflect the games at all including Pigma showing up on Solar. Video game canon doesn't have Wolf knowing about James at all (James' name is even a completely different name in the Nintendo Power comic). In-game Wolf never mentions anything about it and it is likely retconned away.

    The true nature of Wolf's "rivalry" with James McCloud remains one of the Star Fox series' biggest mysteries.

    Exactly it's a mystery whether it's true or not. Brawl is not a canon place for information.

    Young Link is 12 years old and Adult Link is 19 years old.

    Which Hero of Time do you think that Link's Grandma is referring to then when she mentions that Link has to wear the same clothes as the Hero of Time when he reached the same age that he set off on his journey?

    Wind Waker is set a Long Time after Ocarina of Time after there has been a great flood in Hyrule.

    According to The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia, Nintendo's official Legend of Zelda chronology, The Wind Waker takes place in the "New World" timeline, one of several parallel timelines in which Zelda games are set following the events of Ocarina of Time. The game follows the "Adult Link" timeline, after Link, the "Hero of Time", defeats Ganon and time-travels back to his childhood. A crisis emerges when Ganon returns, but Link does not. Centuries later, the people live on islands in the Great Sea. They preserve Link's story as a legend, but his kingdom's fate is unknown. The main character, a young boy also named Link, lives on Outset Island, where boys dress in green like the Hero of Time when they reach the same age as the Hero of Time when he set off on his journey which is 12 years old.

    "Time certainly flies...I can't believe you're already old enough to wear these clothes....Don't look so disappointed dear one. Today is a day to celebrate! It is the day that you become the same age as the young hero spoken in all of the legends. You only have to wear them for one day, so don't look so down. Be proud, child!"
    — Link's Grandma

    Therefore in Ocarina of Time, Young Link is 12 years old and Adult Link is 19 years old.

    I've said this one before. (and said the fact that I've said it before, again)

    That's a legend 100 years after Hyrule flooded. Like I said Link appeared talked to Zelda, got some stones, was locked away for 7 years in another realm, reappeared and killed Ganon and then disappeared from the world when Zelda sent him back in time. It's not known how old he was ever since he didn't talk to anyone but Zelda really. It's likely a tradition came out from this later after the hero failed to appear and they chose the age of 12 for the hero to be.

    I'm not definitively saying that he's 17 but questioning your logic that "for sure" he's 19. The creators most always state that he's 9 or 10 when young and 16 or 17 when he's older but Miyamoto has been seen stating he's 7 years old. Nobody can get a for sure consensus (I mean the games stand on their own merit) but you're just on here claiming for sure that he's 19 by pointing to Smash Bros. Brawl of all things, comparing him to NPC's in the game (which proves exactly nothing in age), and also backing up your argument of comparing his body with you comparing your height to your grandmother's height. Instead of seeing what's a most common explanation you're grabbing onto the one or two that help your argument. There's contradictions all throughout LoZ games from the creators explanations.

    Cruinn-Annin I haven't done anything wrong. I've just proved a point that Eiji Aonuma (The producer, director and project manager of The Legend of Zelda series) has officially declared that Young Link is 12 years old.

    Fox_Forever are you saying its possible for Adult Link to be 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 or 19? (19 according to Eiji Aonuma though).

    Notice its not 25, 35 or 38 like some people believe.

    Notice Link's grandma stated its the "Same Age as the hero of Time". Of course they know how old Young Link was, he was the hero of time and he was the same age as Zelda. Everyone knew how old Zelda was, she was one of the most famous people in Hyrule. Young Zelda is 12 and Adult Zelda is 19. Zelda in the Wind Waker is 12.

    Brandy, Link is 12 according to Eiji Aonuma. Are you trying to say Eiji Aonuma is incorrect?

    I don't know who Sports Pro Joe or Peter F are but I appreciate their opinions.

    Pirate_Ninja do you also think Eiji Aonuma is incorrect about Link being 12 years old?

    Also do you guys remember that the Gerudo woman, Nabooru made a promise to Link:
    "If only I knew you would become such a handsome man... I should have kept the promise i made back then"



    Nabooru is a fully grown woman in her 20's. Don't you think it would be strange if she said that to a 17 year old, a 16 year old or someone even younger? Most women in their 20's usually prefer fully grown men who are at least 19 years old. Not 16/17 year old boys.

    It could actually be hinted at something sexual. Zelda is a kiddy game but there are sexual references in Pokémon and Dragonball Z and they are kiddy cartoons. Japan isn't bothered about it. A few light sexual jokes is normal for a Japanese kiddy game or Japanese cartoon.

    Do you think the Gerudo woman has no sex drive and shud be dressed like a Muslim and stop revealing her flesh?

    She said Link is a handsome man and she obviously fancies him. She wanted an arranged marriage with him and then to have sex with him. There's nothing weird about that, is there becuz Link is a full grown man when he's older.

    Maybe u shud ask Pirate Ninja for her opinion. She thinks she's more popular than u all

    aside from every other problem encountered so far, why are we making assumptions about the age of consent and sexual norms in this fictional, quasi-medieval society involving a culture that is said to bear one male every thousand years and will literally throw you in jail just for setting foot on their land

    Adult Link is 19. Not 16 or 17.

    Kaepora Gaebora the owl says "Link, you have fully matured as a fully grown adult. From now on, the future of all the people in Hyrule is on your shoulders. Maybe it's not my time anymore. Here is my last advice. Two witches inhabit this temple. In order to destroy them, turn their own magic power against them. Hoo hoot!"

    It would be factually incorrect and strange to say to a 16/17 year old boy "You have fully matured as a fully grown adult". Because to be sure that all boys have matured as a fully grown adult they need to be 19 years old.

    Navi says: "Look Link! You're big now!! You've grown up!"

    Darunia says: "Who's there? Is that you, Link...? Oh, it really is Link! You've grown so big since I last saw you! I want to have a man-to-man talk with you, but now's not the time. Ganondorf is causing trouble on Death Mountain again!"

    Link is a 19 year old grown man. That's why Darunia wants a man-to-man talk with him. A 16 year old boy is not a man.

    Link the Goron: "Brother Link! Everybody has come back! Dad and you destroyed the dragon together, didn't you! When I grow up, I want to be a strong man like you, Link"

    Deku Tree Sprout: "Hey, have you seen your old friends? None of them recognized you with your grown-up body, did they? That's because the Kokiri never grow up! Even after seven years, they're still kids!" A 16/17 year old boy does not have a grown up body. Adult Link is 19.

    Poe House Man: "Oh...you are quite an energetic young man. You're brave and handsome, too. Heh heh heh...your name is Link, isn't it." An old man saying that a 16 year old boy is handsome would be very strange. Adult Link is is obviously 19.

    Princess Ruto: "Link... I would have expected no less from the man I chose to be my husband. Zora's Domain and its people will eventually return to their original state. As a reward... I grant my eternal love to you." 16 year olds are normally too young to get married to eachother. Link is a 19 year old fully grown man and Princess Ruto is a 19 year old woman. She wants to marry Link.

    So if Adult Link is a fully grown fully mature adult man then he must be 19 years old. 16/17 year olds are still high school kids.

    Nabooru is obviously sexually attracted to 19 year old Adult Link. She's a 26 year old woman. She wanted an arranged marriage with him and to share her rupees with him.

    Seems like there are a lot of women who want to marry Link. Malon, Saria, Princess Ruto, Zelda, Nabooru and even the gay poe man. Who thinks Adult Link is a player?

    Saria will always look like a 12 year old girl though because her body doesn't grow. The kokiri people stay looking like 12 year old children forever.

    Child Link is 12, Adult Link is 19 in Ocarina of Time

    that's much more concise and just as effective

    but given that I don't care about the Zelda timeline or the ages of any of the Links within it, that still means "not very effective at all"


    I just wanna explore dungeons and hack up monsters and chill with a princess (a good game where you play as Zelda would also be nice, because boy oh boy was Zelda's Adventure a wasted opporunity)

    SOH is actually right: Why ARE you guys arguing with the troll? The rule of thumb is DO NOT feed the troll.

    Isn't this the same guy who argued that young Link was 10 and adult Link is 15 many, many, MANY years ago on Gametalk? Hilarious.

    Now, speaking of which, what would you guys do with your lives if you were a REALLY strong man, or just a very strong man in general? Should I become a pro wrestler or a professional weight lifter?

    EDIT: And I gotta add, I strongly disagree about that Breath of the Wild sentiment. It really was the breath (no pun intended) of fresh air the series needed after clearly becoming very stale with Skyward Sword. I do miss more traditional tools and dungeons (like, seriously, all four dungeons were the same stony color...what?). But to deny everything that BotW does correctly is something I can't get on board with. My god, I loved the overworld in that game!

    Mods are part of the norm these days. That's why you can use mods on Skyrim even on the Xbox One.

    Laxan, Young Link is not 10, he is 12. Adult Link is not 15, he is 19.

    He turns 12 years old when he sets off on his journey to save Hyrule and he sleeps for SEVEN whole years. Therefore Adult Link is 19 years old. Its quick Maths :)

    Laxan there's a thread going on in the general forum about becoming the world's strongest man. If 19 year old Adult Link was the world's strongest man, he would do this....



    Laxan do you think you could have as much fun completing Zelda Breath of the Wild 100% as completing Ocarina of Time 100%?

    Here is an image of 12 year old Child Link standing next to 19 year old Adult Link:

    s'fine. There are good points to it, sure. But the parts of Zelda games that I tend to enjoy most are the parts that BotW failed at, so it's hard for me to think very highly of it as part of the series. Finished it, had no interest in returning when the DLC was released, will most likely never replay it.

    I am definitely with you about the dungeons and tools/items, Pirate_Ninja. I hope the sequel improves on these two factors vastly, though I do admire how much they were able to accomplish with just four tools.

    I theorize that Nintendo will go the way of Majora's Mask and put Link in a different world/dimension/continent that isn't Hyrule for the next game. It would be boring to trek through the same Hyrule world again a second time. Kind of curious how they'll change the overworld in the next game. I'm also still hoping they make a Zelda game that takes place in a futuristic Hyrule and Zelda is your actual partner for once (who fights alongside you/helps you solve puzzles) but that's just me. Heck, they might actually be going that way since Link gets a motorcycle in BotW's DLC and I've imagined Link would have a motorcycle called EPONA in this futuristic Hyrule for a long time.

    I know people are strongly against a more sci-fi, futuristic Zelda and only want it to stay medieval, but honestly...the medieval setting gets old (which is why I love Final Fantasy so much). Not that I would want Zelda to abandon the medieval fantasy setting for good...just something different for a change.

    I'm going to be pretty annoyed if that development trailer with her and Link together is a goddamn bait-and-switch and ten seconds later she gets kidnapped/imprisoned/sealed/corrupted/whatever for the balance of his adventure.

    I enjoyed BOTW. But I am not a huge zelda fan so I have nothing to really compare it to. It is easily the best open world game of this generation.

    In the words of Eiji Aonuma:

    Link’s supposed to be about 12 years old, and instead of imbuing him with the wisdom you might expect to find in an honors student, I wanted to create a Link that put a lot of energy into solving problems and getting out of the sticky situations he found himself in."


    Again, he's referring to the WIND WAKER Link. You keep on omitting the word "This" at the beginning when he says "This Link's supposed to be about 12 years old" and he was talking about Wind Waker Link which nobody is disputing. Stop pointing at this quote like it means anything.

    It's funny how obsessed you all are about how old Link is. How it's causing arguments about whose right or wrong.

    Link looks about 12 when he's a kid though. Nobody knows for sure. Why are you all obsessed about age?

    Wind Waker Link is the main Link. He stars in more Zelda games than Ocarina of Time Link. If Wind Waker Link is 12, it should mean that all the Child Links are 12 right from Zelda 1 onwards! Except in Majora's Mask where Link is 13. (Because its set a few months after Ocarina of Time). Have you noticed in Majora's Mask, Link is a lot more athletic and he has taught Epona some new tricks.

    Joe is welcome to be my friend if he wants. Maybe you can be my friend too Fox, we can put all this arguing about Link's age behind us and go for a drink down the pub? How about it?

    But don't forget Fox you need to be over 19 years old if were going to drink beer together in a pub in Canada.

    Wind Waker Link is only in 2 games as far as I'm aware. Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass.

    Also you linked a thread where two people say Link is 9 or 10 and one that says he is 13.

    Actually Fox_Forever, 3 people in that thread said Link is 10 or 11. Maybe they think Adult Link is 18 and a half.

    Also Wind Waker Link has appeared in Wind Waker, Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass. So that's 3 games.

    Ocarina of Time Link has only appeared in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

    So anyway Fox_Forever, how about we go to the pub? As long as you're over 19 years old we can drink in a pub in Canada.

    I still think it's funny that you linked that when nobody said he was 12 when he was young. Except the one guy who said he was 24 who's probably joking.

    Spirit Tracks is set 100 years after Phantom Hourglass. So they are not the same Link but are done in the same style. If you're going by who is the main Link due to how many games that one particular Link is in then it's the A Link to the Past/Oracle of Ages/Oracle of Seasons/Link's Awakening Link.

    I would go to a pub no problem, though I don't really drink.

    Actually Fox_Forever, Ang_Logean said "In OoT Link is 12yo, the events of MM happened several months after OoT so he is probably around 13yo (In TWW it is said that the hero of time was 12yo)"

    and cindercide said Link was 24 meaning Child Link would be 17. (If that was the case, Child Link would have been one of the very late developing small 17 year olds)

    The Link in Spirit Tracks is the direct reincarnation of Wind Waker Link.

    Actually the Link to the Past Link is a different Link to the Link in Link's Awakening, Oracle or Seasons and Oracle of Ages.

    The Link in Link to the Past is 16, Zelda is 16 too they are the same age.

    "At sixteen years of age, Zelda the First defied Agahnim when he usurped power from the King. legend has it that she survived a cruel imprisonment and was rescued by Link."

    Source: "Official Nintendo Character Guide" https://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/08/07/link-nearly-killed-zelda-according-unearthed-nintendo-documents
    But have you noticed in the Gameboy Advance version of Link to the Past, Link has a high pitched voice at 16 years old. It means Link must have been a late voice breaker.

    And in Link's Awakening, Link is 17 years old. But in the Switch remake of Link's Awakening, Link has a high pitched voice. This means Link was a very late voice breaker. Therefore Adult Link in Ocarina of Time must be older than 17....... and he must be 19 with a voice as deep as that.

    Maybe you can come out to the night clubs and dance, Fox_Forever. You can still enjoy yourself being sober. But you need to be 19 if you want to go out to the night clubs to dance in Canada.

    You know Link can drink alcoholic milk in Majora's Mask even though he's only 13? Gorman keeps getting drunk from it. Its called Chateau Romani milk.

    Then again Link has been a 19 year old fully grown adult man before and the world is supposed to end in 3 days, so I guess there's no harm in him drinking alcohol even though he's only 13.
