I'm pretty sure that BS Zelda is a canon Zelda game, so, should we try to find a spot for it in the timeline? Or, is it just the "Second Quest" to LTTP? I've never played it, so I wouldn't remember the details on it.
Hmmm very good question. I believe some people have used it before in their timelines. I believe it follows ALttP, though I never really paid much attention to it because I didn't consider it a "cannon" because it never came out in the US (or any other countries).
Well... it is canon. Nintendo endorced, produced, and developed it. Nintendo later stated the reason it wasn't released in America or Europe was because it involved radio transmissions, which would mean that every 200 miles, there would have to be a reciever to pick up the signals that the "Satellaview" SNES add-on sends. If the Satellaview was released in America, alot of people wouldn't be able to use it, because the signals might not be picked up from where they live, like the way radios don't work in certain areas because they are out of range. Since Japan is small, there were little to no problems with the radio transmissions there.
Sort of like asking about LA DX - did Link go to the island twice through a timeloop or something? No, of course not.
*Sigh* Things like the Satellaview really depress me. The Japanese get all this great stuff living in the homeland, and whilst Yanks sometimes get Jap perks (better virtual console, more releases, GBA SP with the 70% brighter screen), us Europeans can whistle for all of it.

1) Console it appeared on never released worldwide.
2) Limited-edition release; unplayable at present without illegal ROMs.
3) Irrelevant to the timeline. Ganon is revived and immediately killed. Same as Oracles.
... it took me a minute to realize I'm suddenly a Yank... *has to look up a slang word for British* Brits still use that slang? (of course I have heard Jap before, so it shouldn't be that hard to imagine)
