The Legend of Zelda: Birth of Majora is an upcoming game for the Wii U. Unlike all Zelda Games before it, it does not feature Link or Zelda for that matter. Rather, it centers around the conception of Majora's Mask and it's relevance to Hyrule.
The Garo and Ikana of Termina were once grand tribes. Both were a proud, yet arrogant people who boasted about their skills in combat and their superiority over other races. The Garo were a stealthy group of ninja; the Ikana, in contrast, were sword-weilding bloodlusting tribes. When the two group became of equal signifigance, they began to argue over superiority. This lead to a great war among said people living in the area. They spread the war throughout Termina, each side convincing different groups to side with them.
