Yep. You're right. Never noticed that before .
I guess that really is it for the map then. Hopefully the sky space will compensate.

Re: US official SS page updated with lots of info!!

The Triforce symbol stands on the edge of the desert, just like the "Goddess's Temple", aka Spirit Temple in Ocarina of Time. You could only get there crossing a vast desert, where one got lost. Maybe the boat will avoid this, just like the Poe that guides you in Ocarina.

And there is the statue of a goddess there, in both Ocarina and Twilight Princess. As a matter of fact, in TP, when you sink the Goddess's Staue, the entrance to the Twilight Realm appears, as well as the Mirror of Twilight.

Could the cogwheel have anything to do with that? Or is it an entrance to the Sacred Realm? And what about the black rock and the mirror? Will they appear for the first time?

Either way, it is where Zelda and Link will meet again (remember the symbol behind her in the lyre trailer?).

I also remembered a detail: in Ocarina, Ganondorf is shown entering the Sacred Realm and after being defeated, returns there by force, since he is sent by the Sages (though I'm not sure if he is banished to the SR or to 'a gap between dimensions', can anyone clarify that matter?). However, in TP it is revealed that place was the Twilight Realm.

How is that possible? Is there a connection between the place where the Sages actually sent him, the Sacred Realm and the Twilight Realm? Could it be related to the cogwheel, the Mirror of Twilight and that black rock? Just what the heck is Nintendo doing?

You're getting a little confused.

In OoT itself (on the adult timeline), Ganondorf gets sent into the sacred realm by the sages, and is stuck there until the events of WW.

On the child timeline, Ganondorf was still roaming around. A few years later (as depicted in the TP flashback), he was captured, and the sages (presumably the predecessors to the sages we awakened in OoT) tried executing him. Turns out he had the ToP, so the sages banished him to the Twilight Realm

Two different events, effectively in two different universes.

I think they reverse time in a way, or restore the land to the way it was. Like Labrynian Rebel said, the desert is what was left after the demons destroyed everything there. So when this boat moves, it causes the area surrounding it to go back to the way it was, a lake/sea. If you look at the trailer again, you can see the water is spreading. Its at 1:05.



This has me really wondering about the Gerudo and Ganondorf...

Re: US official SS page updated with lots of info!!

This game will make me very sad if it does not have Gerudo.

And before anyone says it, NO, Groose does not ♥♥♥♥ing count.

It's either really bad draw distance or that boat makes two rocks form and changes the texture of that tall rock.

Re: US official SS page updated with lots of info!!

I think I found out where Lake Hylia is!!





They're exactly the same shape (apart for Zora's river)

I'm pretty sure it's the same place seen in the picture above.

Geographically, it makes sense for it to go there. It fits perfectly if we go by OoT's map. The only problem is that this is from the Wii version of the game which might not be considered canon...

This confirms the water is spreading out around the boat, for me. You clearly see sand underneath the rock in the first picture, whereas in the second it's now water. I can't imagine a game having a terrible draw distance like that.

Re: US official SS page updated with lots of info!!

So does anybody think my Lake Hylia theory is plausible? TP's lake Hylia doesn't have the dip at the top, but that could easily be explained by erosion or something.

The textures of distant objects do change as you get closer to them. It's designed that way intentionally- things that are blurred in a paint-like way become clear as you get closer.

I pointed that out more than a month ago and made a whole thread about it. At least other people care now too.

So then the boat has a time crystal on it, and it's restoring the lake in its bubble as it moves?

Must be the object on the prow. The boat is probably in the desert on the western edge.

I don't think that's just the transition of an object going from the background into the foreground. The rock went from dark brown to a light grey with green moss(?) on top of it.

Oops, sorry. I probably would've remembered it if somebody posted pictures of it in your thread. I was too lazy to look for it myself at the time

Re: US official SS page updated with lots of info!!

If you "restore" parts of the desert, isn't it possible that part of the desert region is really the Hyrule Field area and that the Gerudo Desert is only the western part of that region?

I like this theory, even if the pic is from the Wii version. Does OoT's map outline fit better though? I'm curious.

Re: US official SS page updated with lots of info!!

^ Well OoT's Lake Hylia is also circular, but that's about it. OoT's Lake Hylia is a really basic shape so there's not much to go by. I don't think when they were making OoT they were looking that far into the future. Though if that really is Lake Hylia, then they definitely went by the geography of OoT's map.

I think the enemy is called Magmanos because its name has 2 different words in it Mag=i guess its short for magma
manos=it means hands in Spanish
