In general, the games of the Zelda series are all about the kingdom of Hyrule. This kingdom has been fighting the demon Ganon for thousands of years. This battle is fought by a legendary princess, who is assisted by various heroes

The original destruction of Ganon took place 10,000 years ago, many thousands of years before our hero Link lives. The current population of Hyrule worships Princess Zelda and all who fought evil with her. At that time, the people wanted to end the battle with Ganon once and for all and invented machines to defeat Ganon with the Shiekah – these Titans were led by specially selected warriors. There was also a band of guards who moved as if by magic. These were also valuable components of the strategy against the devastation of Ganon.

After a long, long time, a prophecy finally says that a new attack of Ganon was imminent. Excavations are being conducted to find the relics of the legend, and indeed the Titans and Guardians are being tracked down by the people of Hyrule.

The royal house of Hyrule then hatched a plan to once again select especially brave and skilled warriors to control the Titans. Led by the princess, these warriors are to fight for victory.

Unfortunately, Ganon himself is very skilled, surprising the Hylians with a sudden attack and overpowering both Titans and Guardians. All those present in the castle as well as four of the five warriors selected are killed and the princess is taken prisoner.

Only Link survives the whole thing severely injured. These life-threatening injuries were inflicted on him in his desperate attempt to protect the princess.

Link falls into a deep sleep for a hundred years, which allows him to heal his wounds, but in return he loses all his memories. He wakes up again in the Shrine of Life and is initially disoriented. He manages to escape the Forgotten Plateau and is asked by the king to defeat Ganon and save the princess. This should finally restore peace in Hyrule.

Link wears a green tunic with a green pointed cap in all Zelda games, except Breath often wears heather game, typically a green tunic with a green pointed cap.

Interestingly, its name is a game with the English word link, which means to connect or join. This is because the game is structured in such a way that players can choose their own name and Link is the player’s connection to the game world.
