ST and New Hyrule wouldn't be pointless if Nintendo extends upon it in future installments. We saw more technology in ST with the train, so perhaps New Hyrule will be more modern in the future. That could lead to a steampunk Hyrule (which I really want to see for whatever reason XD). Here's to hoping that Nintendo builds upon the New Hyrule idea.To be honest new Hyrule isn't important to the series as a whole! Its just basically the same Hyrule as we have ssen before, it serves the same purpose as past lands of Hyrule have before...Actually if anything it loses the charm and heritage that past Hyrule's have had, we all know that Hyrule as a rich and profound history dating back Millennia's! This Hyrule just doesn't feel as important and basically the whole story felt unimportant compared to ther games in the series.
