For decades, The Legend of Zelda has been entertaining fans with its unique blend of swashbuckling action and role playing adventure. Now, the world of Link returns on the Nintendo 3DS family of handhelds.
One 1992 release, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, introduced Super NES gamers to a whole new story that took place in the kingdom of Hyrule. In this handheld sequel, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds continues this tale – while bringing some unique new elements to the fore.
Thanks to the stereoscopic 3D capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS system, there’s a new layer of depth to the world of the game that allows you to experience Link’s adventures like never before. In the past, it may have been tricky to tell the difference between different floor levels, but now they are crystal clear, giving more realism to battle sequences and dungeon exploration!
When you play The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, you’ll not only encounter deadly dungeons and the usual epic landscapes of the series, but incredible puzzles to test your brain. As you negotiate the terrain, you’ll also be able to move Link across walls as if he were painted on them, changing the perspective completely and allowing you to think about your next move in a whole new dimension
Two worlds collide in an all-new adventure set in the world of Super NES™ classic The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™. In this newly spun tale, Link™ transforms into a living painting to cross into a dark, parallel dimension mirroring Hyrule. Conquer the puzzles, traps, and hidden rooms of deadly dungeons to save both worlds from certain doom!
Brought to life in 3D, this beloved, top-down world is the perfect backdrop for a sweeping new tale. Dungeons sink deep below the screen as Link and his attacks pop out, highlighting the nonstop action. The pace is faster than ever, especially since you can swap items on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen. Shoot an arrow, toss a boomerang, bomb a wall, then merge into a painting to slide between two worlds - all in a matter of seconds. With gameplay, visuals, and controls this smooth and consistent, no Zelda™ adventure has ever been so action-packed.
