I mean it's kind of cool to know, but considering how non-existant the references to the various games are, I can see why one wouldn't give a ****. They feel more like different takes on the same "Legend".

It's based off of Dynasty Warriors, but the developers have mentioned that they're taking some cues from the main Zelda series. Shown off at the E3 demo was being able to find items on a battlefield to help navigate it (bombs, and a hookshot shown off on the Nintendo Treehouse stream), as well as having huge boss monsters to fight (King Dodongo in the demo)

No, that's improper use of the word spin-off. A Dynasty Wars spin-off would mean using the characters and/or setting of Dynasty Warriors in a different type of game. Since this game is using the Legend of Zelda characters and setting, it's a LoZ spin-off using Dynasty Warriors style gameplay.

well then i must not have meant spin-off, thanks for correcting me. but my point is that the creators of Hyrule Warriors admit to basing the game off of Dynasty Warriors to enable room for fans of both series to enjoy themselves. So i apologize for any misunderstanding i may have caused.

Used to be that way, but after years of fans whining for a timeline, and coming up with very interesting unofficial timelines themselves, the makers finally gave in and made an official timeline

Which I don't care for. I like them being completely independent of eachother with only a running theme and no true connection

From what I saw (which was very little) it had at least some depth to it. The vid I watched the dude was Zelda and it started out like "Help link fight the armies" then they had to help a Goron fight a Lizalfos to open up a mine to get bombs to blow up a wall to save impa. I mean, it doesn't seem like much but it's a lot for a Dynasty Warriors-esque game. I mean, I love DW Gundam 3 but there's is almost no depth to the actual fighting at all.

And then you have Hyrule Warriors where you have Midna from Twilight Princess hookshotting the moon from Majoras Mask.

Because **** timelines when you can have fan service.

But they aren't the only publisher, and don't have exclusive rights to the game. Plus, the gameplay is so drastically different than the main series. You might as well call Link's Crossbow Training canon too.

I still do not accept the existence of a timeline. Every game, unless they had a direct link with another were episodic adventures which stand on their own, like Final Fantasy. You don't have to play Zelda 1 to play Twilight princess.
