Is Link Dead In Majora's Mask?

The Legend of Zelda is a series that keeps on giving when it comes to each games lore. Despite being officially confirmed by Nintendo through Hyrule Historia, the Zelda timeline continues to fascinate hardcore fans who want even more detail on the legendary adventures of Link. One game that has been quite divisive among fans is Majora's Mask which remains one of the most drastically different games in the series history. Outside of the major gameplay changes which involve repeating the same 3 days, Majora's Mask is one of the darkest Zelda tales ever told and YouTube channel The Game Theorists may have just uncovered one of the biggest narrative twists for any game ever developed by the Big N. While not confirmed by Nintendo, evidence peppered throughout the game could lead players to believe that Link's adventure is actually a result of his death early in the adventure. If this is true, Majora's Mask may be one of the most significant tales told in the entire Zelda series and set a precedent that nothing is off limits in the Zelda universe. Enjoy!
