The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Confirmed for November

Europe all set alongside North America
Since its announcement during a previous Nintendo Direct, fans have been hotly anticipating The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for Nintendo 3DS; after all, the game is a direct sequel to one of the most beloved SNES games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. During this morning's Nintendo Direct, we got a look at some new footage, a new logo, story details, and most importantly a release date (or at least, a release month) for Europe, matching up with the release window already confirmed for North America.
Nintendo's Satoru Iwata explained that the second, shadowy Triforce that can be seen in the logo plays a role in the game's plot, and poses the idea of another world that mirrors Link's where this dark object holds the power. Link will travel between his own world and this other "dark" world by transforming into the drawing form shown off in previous footage. Link's adventure takes place in the same world as LTTP, and Ganon has long since been sealed away. Also worth noting is that Link's game art has undergone a small makeover since his last showing; he now sports a slightly more cartoony look.
Nintendo promises entirely new puzzles and dungeons in Link's first 3DS outing, with Europe now given the same November release month as North America. Check out the latest footage below.
