Link is determined to fix the problems he helped to create, so with the help of Rauru he travels through time gathering the powers of the Seven Sages. Link then sets Zelda free after he crushes Ganondorf. Zelda took possession of the Triforce of Wisdom, Link took possession of the Triforce of Courage, and Ganondorf obtained the Triforce of Power. Once everything is over the 7 sages imprison Ganondorf with the triforce of Power in the Dark Realm. Zelda and Link escape before the last bit of the castle crashes, but Ganondorf subdues from the rubble as a huge monster resembling a boar with the Triforce of Power. He then removes it from its pedestal.
Out of nowhere Ganondorf swoops in and kidnaps Princess Zelda, and imprisons her inside of the Castle. When Link enters the Temple of Time, he brings out the gift Zelda gave to him The Ocarina of Time as well as the 3 spiritual stones. It hit the shelves in North American and Japan on November 1998, and Australia and Europe the next month. Link realizes that he must do whatever he can to prevent that from happening. Link as a child had already made friends with the 5 sages who consist of: Darunia sage of the Fire Temple; Saria Sage of the Forsest Temple; Impa Sage of the Shadow Temple; Nabooru Leader of the Gerudos in the absence of Ganondorf, Sage of the Spirit Temple, and Ruto Sage of the Water Temple. . Little did Link know is that Ganondorf had followed him inside of the Temple and claimed the Triforce.
Princess Zelda politely tells Link that he must take possession of the 3 spiritual stones. Hyrule Field is center of Hyrule which branches off into other regions that are rich with nature and beautiful features that house the Hyrule race. Zelda conveys to Link that the Triforce was split apart into 3 pieces due to the heart of Ganondorf being unbalanced. Princess Zelda thinks that Ganondorf the Gerudo king is out for the Triforce which is a relic of holiness that gives godlike superpowers to whomever possesses it. The rest of the 6 Sages accompany Link and help him penetrate the stronghold. It transpires after The Legend of Zelda Four Swords, and takes place before A Link to the Past.
All 7 of the sages can incarcerate Ganondorf inside of the Sacred Realm, but 5 of the sages are unaware of what they truly are. A nightmare where he witnessed a guy on the back of a horse, in a suit of black armor, chasing a young women. Link is awoken by a fairy Nav from a horrible nightmare. As a young boy, Link is tricked by Ganondorf, the King of the Gerudo Thieves. Princess Zelda then uses the Ocarina of Time on Link to bring him back as a child. But Ganondorf in a last ditch effort decided to demolish the castle hoping it would kill Zelda and Link. With all of that in hand the door to the Sacred Realm opens.
Link makes his way back to the Castle of Hyrule. The evil human uses Link to gain access to the Sacred Realm, where he places his tainted hands on Triforce and transforms the beautiful Hyrulean landscape into a barren wasteland. Link follows the fairy Navi to meet the Great Deku who happens to be on the wrong side of death due to a curse. Upon entering the Sacred Realm Link discovers the Master Sword. While visiting the garden at the Castle of Hyrule, Link comes face to face with Princess Zelda.
Ganondorf swears that he will take revenge. . . . .
