It’s no secret that 1991’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is one of the most beloved titles in the series. Later this year, Nintendo plans on releasing a successor to the game exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.
The newThe Legend of Zelda game, tentatively titled A Link to the Past 2, is set in the same world as A Link to the Past, though it will feature its own unique story and dungeons. Like the majority of other handheld Zelda titles, and A Link to the Past itself, the game is played from an overhead perspective, though due to the 3DS’ 3D functionality, the game’s locales and dungeons will feature numerous elevations. In addition, new gameplay mechanics are being introduced, such as the ability for Link to turn into a drawing on the wall and slip through barred openings and cross gaps.
Like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 will be released this holiday season. A 3D trailer for the game is now available to download via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
