Well, I have never argued for it to be part of the canon. But actually to fit it in an alternate timeline where Haunted Castle happened (though this is more a Zangetsu's thing).

I have thought about what you said and I have some ideas, but I don't wish to derail the thread so I may start my own.

I have to admit, I'm both frustrated and legitimately impressed by the amount of mileage you guys have gotten out of arguing the canonicity of a game even *I* will freely admit was never really part of the canon to begin with.

You and me both. o_O

When I mentioned OoS in the "Remake" thread, I'll admit that I expected some "Yeah, maybe" or "Ugh, never mention that name again", but not "y'know, there are some very interesting theories..." :D

But that's on me for being gone so long, and forgetting how in-tune this community is. :)

Personally, while it is clearly not a part of the timeline, that doesn't mean that it wasn't created with the intention of being able to fit with what had already been established - it was created with thought given to the timeline and where it could fit/how it could fit, it just isn't actually meant to be considered an actual part of the timeline.  If that makes sense? Sorry, I'm writing this on my phone.
