How will I know unless we take a chance?

The Majora's Mask music in Hyrule Warriors is so damn catchy


*Idles on map screen and awaits death by moon crash*
Feb 05
I know it's early, but anyone else dig into the Majora's Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors yet? I've played about an hour of it today and I'm loving the Termina map, especially its music, embedded above. So upbeat despite that ac... read
