There has been no shortage of Zelda games since the series launched on the NES way back in 1986 (1987 in North America). The newest game will be the fifteenth game in the series and the first original title to appear on the Nintendo 3DS. Perhaps the favourite and most celebrated title of the Zelda series is A Link to the Past, the third in the series and only game to appear on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. This newest game, A Link Between Worlds, is a sequel to that game.
Two worlds collide in the all-new adventure set in the world of Super NES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In this game, Link transforms into a living painting to cross into a dark, parallel dimension mirroring Hyrule.
Here are some of the features that are touted for the game from Nintendo.
• A daring adventure awaits Link in Hyrule, where he can use his new ability to become a “drawing” and merge into walls of dungeons and fields. This opens up new ways to explore, and puzzle elements that give Link access to locations he could not otherwise reach.
• The game brings this top-down, 2D world to life with elevation and depth enabled by the Nintendo 3DS system’s 3D visuals. The stunning 3D visuals are made possible by the constant frame rate of 60 frames per second.
• Using the touch screen, touch and drag the item from the items window and switch the item assigned to the X and/or Y buttons.
