Curiosity Shop #104: Zelda Dungeon Mailbag

Hey everyone! Got a new mailbag for you! (On time? Sorcery!) This one has a fair number of questions about Skyward Sword, with the rest being a bunch of other questions about different aspects of the series. The Skyward Sword focus this time wasn’t planned, though it’s pretty convenient since Skyward Sword’s birthday was just recently. Anyway, I actually had to rush to get this mailbag ready, so I haven’t gone through all of the submitted questions yet. Rest assured, I will be reading all the ones I skipped over for next week! Anyway, 11 questions in all. Enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.

Questions and timestamps:

(00:21) – Who is your favorite Zelda girl?
(00:56) – Do you think the Master Quest add-on to Ocarina of Time was a good idea of a hard mode in a Zelda game or would you want something else?
(02:14) – What’s your opinion on the Zelda manga and cartoon series?
(03:12) – If you had to guess, what do you think will be the setting for the new 3DS and Wii U games, and where will they be on the timeline?
(04:20) – Do you think Skull Kids will make an appearance in the next Zelda title?
(05:14) – Would you like to see a Zelda game produced outside of EAD, and if so, by which developer?
(06:50) – I read somewhere that in A Link to the Past, Link’s Uncle was the King of Hyrule. Is this true?
(06:59) – Are Link and Zelda related, as brother and sister? And is this only in Ocarina of Time?
(08:04) – Did Skyward Sword disappoint you? Why or why not?
(09:06) – Would you like to see a darker Zelda game in Skyward Sword’s artstyle?
