Curiosity Shop #113: Zelda Dungeon Mailbag

Hey there guys! New mailbag! This time around we’ve got a whopping 18 questions (though it pushed the time to 12 minutes again), with a couple on The Wind Waker HD, Majora’s Mask, and Twilight Princess. A large amount of the questions however concern the timeline and Hyrule Historia, and that’s cool because we don’t cover the timeline too often in the mailbag. 18 questions in all. Enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.
