Earlier this year, when "Hyrule Historia" was released, it provided a comprehensive history of every "Zelda" game, save for two, "BS Zelda" and "Link's Crossbow Training." The two smaller pieces of Link's history were mentioned in a footnote on page 68, but It makes sense that they weren't included, since one was a Japan-only, digitally distributed title for the Super Famicom, and the other was seemingly created just to showcase the Wii's Zapper.
However, two additional "Zelda" games were complexly overlooked, not even getting a mention; "Link: Faces of Evil" and "Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon," both of which were released in 1993 for the infamous Phillips CD-i system. They have become known for their poor design, bad animation, questionable voice over work, and generally being two of the worst games ever released. On any system. Ever. They're so bad that they have become Internet fodder, and have been at the root of one of gaming's most beloved memes.
So, where were those games, and why weren't they included in "Hyrule Historia"? Surely, Eiji Aonuma, the Director of the "Zelda" series for Nintendo, and a major contributor to "Hyrule Historia" would know. So I asked him, and got what may be one of the only comments on the games, ever, by a Nintendo employee.
