A Link Between Worlds

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a new game with a new storyline set in world of the Super NES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.


  • A daring adventure awaits Link in Hyrule, where he can use his new ability to become a “drawing” and merge into walls of dungeons and fields. This opens up new ways to explore, and puzzle elements that give Link access to locations he could not otherwise reach.
  • The game brings this top-down, 2D world to life with elevation and depth enabled by the Nintendo 3DS system’s 3D visuals. The stunning 3D visuals are made possible by the constant frame rate of 60 frames per second.
  • Using the touch screen, touch and drag the item from the items window and switch the item assigned to the X and/or Y buttons.

This game looks epic so far, like the 3D idea how you transfer onto walls. Amazing, might be another awesome cartoony game like wind waker or minish cap. But I'm hoping the remake majora's mask for the 3DS.

100%'d this game twice. It's a nostalgic overload! It's like revisiting a favorite vacation spot 20 years later to find everything intact. I really hope Nintendo releases more in this same vein, it's not fair to get such a stellar Zelda game every 20 years! Top down, action oriented, puzzle solving, green tunic hero etc...

This is a really good game and I give it respect and all but A Link to The Past still obviously beats it.

LTTP had an sequel on the SNES in Japan. It was an live radio game, where you would go on an second quest against Ganon. New graphics and stuff on the SNES.

Also LTTP is before the original Zelda games. So honestly Nintendo just wants to make another clone of the original game but an different spin on things.
