The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds grants Link the ability to turn himself into a flat painting and therefore stick to walls. This skill is used to good effect in the forthcoming 3DS epic, allowing the player to solve puzzles and reach new areas.

The video below was posted on the eShop and uploaded by Nintendo Everything, and — as you might have gathered by now — is pretty light-hearted in tone. It's nice to see that so many of Nintendo's key staff have a sense of humour.
