And a new Bioshock-like/Dark Requiem-like experience (whether for Zelda or another game), then they can keep making all this inane add-ons.

Most people from the western hemisphere will think of Brave New World when they say Soma. This could be it, but I doubt it. In India, it was a drink/plant, but there's not much evidence that it was actualy hallucinagenic. This could be what it is, but it seems a bit obscure.

However, in Hindusim, Soma is the god with ties to the moon and the underword, I believe. I think he doubled as a tasty drink for the gods, as well. I think this is the best bet.

No matter how you slice it, Soma is a substance that is supposed to have some sort of medicinal qualities, and with one definition, is accociated with gods.

Pretend with me, for a moment, that not all translations are exactly perfect, and what would make sense in Japanese doesn't always look quite right in english, at first. It could be a game where we do things for a god.

It does likely have something to do with the Indian drink, though, since that is Soma in the east. It is less likely, but still possible, that it has something to do with the Soma in Brave New World. We also can't discount the idea that Nintendo may have come up with their own version of Soma.
