Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the fifth image has one too many sages/maidens in it?
Yeah second one has one too many also. I was thinking extra one must be Zelda.....but nope fifth image destroys that theory. So now we must have a fourth Legend of Zelda timeline where a seventh sage joins up following Links defeat in OoT.....for some reason. *shrug*
It could be referencing Sahasrahla's involvement but you only really met 2 or 3 wiseguys that were descended of the Seven Wisemen (and the fourth one would've been the Good King who was dead by the start of the game). Or it could be a metaphor representing the Sages' bloodline at work or something.
But the second picture though was like the first picture in that it was borrowing from aLttP's opening sequence. The first picture depicts the war fought over the Golden Land, the second was the sealing of the Golden Land, the third depicts the Cataclysm that opens up the Dark World and the second half of the game, the fourth of course is the final battle, and the last is Link using the Triforce to fix everything (interesting note is how the Triforces are being depicted coming together like they did in both the title screen and in the ending of aLttP).
Also some added details on how the rental system will work. http://www.siliconera.com/2013/10/02/zelda-producer-aonuma-explains-renting-items-works-link-worlds/
Basically, with some quick cash early on, you can rent items out the store and you get to keep them until you Game Over then you have to rent them again until you can eventually buy them outright, or you can do what most players are probably going to do and just rent the fuck out of that store ASAP and not bother purchasing any of the items because you'll always have a bottled fairy on hand to revive even if you should somehow fall.
