Curiosity Shop #111: Zelda Dungeon Mailbag

New mailbag, everybody! Got a fair amount of questions that tie into Twilight Princess in some way, though none of them very directly. We also discuss upcoming Zelda games once more, of course, as well as some general facts about the Zelda series. There are 15 questions in all. The mailbag’s a little long this time, going on 12 minutes, mostly because there was a sizable amount of questions. Enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.

Questions and timestamps:

(00:26) – What do you think is Zelda’s biggest missed opportunity and why?
(02:11) – What’s your opinion on the “hero is defeated” part of the timeline?
(02:21) – If Link gets Heart Containers from bosses, doesn’t that mean he’s cutting out their hearts?
(03:38) – Do you think it would be cool if Link had a rival like in the Pokemon games?
(04:39) – It feels like they’re using the same boss ideas over and over. What could be done to make them unique again?
(05:58) – Would you like Zelda Wii U to have the style of The Wind Waker HD, or another Zelda game? What style do you want?
(06:52) – Do you think Zelda 3DS will be announced at this year’s GDC?
(07:31) – What item from Ocarina of Time do you think is the most underused?
(07:56) – Why does Tatl just tell Link to leave right after you beat Majora?
(08:04) – What happens to the time you just left when you play the Song of Time in Majora’s Mask?
(09:01) – When do the two Oracle games take place in the chronology? Do they happen at the same time; do they have the same Link?
(10:29) – Is Twilight Princess’ Ganondorf the same as the one in Ocarina of Time?
(10:47) – How come the Triforce is sometimes inside Link, and other times a separate object?
(11:44) – Do you think we will ever see the Lokomo Sword again?
(11:52) – Do you think that there is any connection between Fi and Ghirahim?
