Curiosity Shop #107: Zelda Dungeon Mailbag

Got a new mailbag for you guys! Now that we’re into the new year, the mailbag should definitely be coming often without so many delays! This time around we’ve got a nice variety of interesting questions, and in particular there’s some discussion about the old Zelda games and how the new ones stack up, plus comparisons between the modern console games and handheld games. We also talk a bit about the regions and their themes in Skyward Sword, and of course Zelda Wii U, since all of us eagerly await news on that. There are other questions too! 11 in all. Enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.
