Nintendo showed off some new developments in the The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds during its Nintendo Direct presentation this morning.
Seeing as it is a sequel to the eternally popular a Link to the Past, the mechanics and themes of this new game do not stray too far from its predecessor. This new game takes place far in the future with a new Link character, but he will still be jumping in and out of the Dark World. However something is amiss in Hyrule as the Dark World grows stronger.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata explained the games story exists within its newly revealed logo. Another shadowy Trifore has emerged in the depths of the Dark World, and this Link’s job is to seek it out and find the purpose behind this new evil threat.
The settings, enemies, music, and overworld maps almost seem copied and pasted from the original game, meaning it should be easy to navigate for veterans jumping back into this Hyrule. I can’t wait. Link to the Past has always been my favorite.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds launches later this November exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
