Nintendo has just announced that they will release a new Legend of Zelda game for Nintendo 3DS, based on the world of A Link to the Past, the company announced this morning. The game will be a sequel to the original SNES version, and it will feature all new mechanics including the ability to turn Link into and 2D drawing, allowing him to move along walls. There definitely taking some new turns with the sequel, and the fact that it’s based on the world of A Link to the Past, makes it all the better.
Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, says the 3DS sequel will “reinvigorate the flat 2D world of A Link to the Past with a sense of height and volume” by utilizing the stereoscopic 3D functionality of the Nintendo 3DS. The game doesn’t have a title yet, but it will feature all new dungeons and a brand new storyline. A lot of people feel that A Link to the Past is still the best Zelda game ever, but I still believe that goes to Ocarina of Time. Either way, I’m excited for the game. The game is scheduled to come out this holiday season in NA, and next year in Japan.
