A number of Zelda games allude to epic battles, but we never actually see them, except perhaps in still artwork flashbacks to a period in history before the actual games. Video game fan-artist Tyler Edlin has imagined a battle in which Link leads the charge, with an army of Hylian Knights and other defenders of Hyrule at his back – you can see a preview above.
Do you think a future Zelda game could raise the stakes in the battle for Hyrule’s future, perhaps alluding to a full-scale war raging across the land as Link journeys forth to find the keys to saving the day? Or do you think that battle scenes like this will remain the realm of fan artwork?
