As fate would have it

Childhood friends Link and Zelda confront their destinies in this earliest saga of the Legend of Zelda series.

The Ancient Battle

This is a tale passed down through uncounted generations. Thousands of years later, some believe this legendary conflict quietly rages on…

One fateful day, the earth cracked wide and evil forces rushed forth. Their brutal assault drove the land into despair.

They did this in their lust to take the ultimate power protected by Her Grace, the Goddess—a power without equal.

The Goddess gathered the surviving humans on an outcropping of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the reach of the demonic hordes.

The Goddess joined forces with the remaining tribes on the surface to seal away the evil, restoring peace.

After thousands of years, the surface world was forgotten by the humans above...
