That’s right, folks. Not a remake, not a re-release, a sequel. Nintendo announced that a new Zelda game set in the world of A Link to the Past is coming to the 3DS this holiday season. It will feature new stories and new dungeons in the familiar world from my favorite Zelda game of all time.
It takes advantage of the 3DS features, utilizes a top-down perspective like the original, but has some new, unique abilities for Link. Now he can attach himself to walls, ala Paper Mario, to move around dungeons and solve puzzles.
This is a new Zelda game, for the 3DS, set in my favorite Zelda world. I think I’m a little excited. Best yet, it’s going to be available before the year is over. Can we handle Wind Waker and a new Zelda game in one year?
