Throughout the Legend of Zelda series, Link has appeared in numerous games and saved the world of Hyrule multiple times. Sometimes, it is the same incarnation of Link. Other times, it is another iteration of the fabled hero. With so many accomplishments and games, you may be wondering what the age of Link is in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and other Zelda entries.
Link's age in all Legend of Zelda games
It is hard to exactly place Link's age in any title as there are multiple timelines and few confirmations of Link's age. We have some confirmations from interviews with Satoru Iwata and various collections of Zelda information, like the official Hyrule Historia. For most Legend of Zelda games, it can only be speculated what Link's age is, but you can find approximate ages for all Legend of Zelda titles below.
NOTE: Link's age in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is based on his age of 17 and then sleeping for 100 years. It can also be assumed that Link will be at least 117 in the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
