Hey guys! New mailbag! This time around, the questions are pretty surprising: We have a whopping 15 questions, and the vast majority of them are about the new A Link to the Past sequel coming out on the 3DS. So, this is indeed a themed mailbag once again. I’m sure we’re going to have a lot of questions about Zelda 3DS and Zelda Wii U in the coming months, though. Enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.
Questions and timestamps:
(00:22) – What do you do while waiting for a new Zelda game?
(00:33) – What aspect of the Zelda fan community do you favor the most? Art? Remixes? Etc.
(01:13) – What is going to be the name of the new Zelda game?
(01:43) – Do you think that Zelda 3DS WILL be called A Link to the Past 2? What’s your title guess?
(02:28) – Why do you think people are unimpressed with the wall-merging mechanic in Zelda 3DS?
(03:33) – Do you think Zelda 3DS’ drawing mechanic will become stale, or be used cleverly?
(05:20) – How do you feel about having Link from A Link to the Past, with him being in four games?
(06:11) – With them announcing that Zelda 3DS will have the Dark World, do you think it’s borrowing too much from A Link to the Past?
(07:28) – Since we’ve seen recreations of many areas from A Link to the Past in Zelda 3DS, what are the chances of them including a remake of it in the new game?
(08:32) – Do you think Zelda 3DS will reference the Chris Houlihan room?
(08:58) – Could the blue sword in Zelda 3DS be the Master Sword? How could this be, so soon after A Link to the Past, since it’s supposed to sleep forever?
(10:08) – If you could add something to Zelda Wii U, what would it be?
(10:21) – Do you think there will ever be a “Hyrule Historia 2” to cover later Zelda games?
