Nintendo has done a good job of keeping a tight lid on details concerning The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, only dishing out a little bit of info from time to time to keep eager gamers humming with anticipation for the upcoming 3DS game. Now we've got a new trailer for the game, revealing an all new location to explore, as well as a some-what familiar villain.
Say what you will about Nintendo's lack of third-party support, the publisher certainly does first party right. Poke'mon X/Y released over the weekend and is likely selling like gangbusters all over the world. Now, in just one month's time, the Hyrulian hero himself, Link, will be making a triumphant return as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds arrives for the Nintendo 3DS. A direct sequel to one of the most beloved games of all time, A Link Between Worlds will likely be on many-a Christmas list this year, and that will only be for those who weren't quick enough to get their own copy of the game nice and early when it releases this November.
We already knew that, in this latest offering, Link would be revisiting his old stomping ground from the SNES' A Link to the Past. This time around, however, it looks like the green-hat-wearing hero will be venturing to a sort of inverse version of his home kingdom, Hyrule, in the dark and mysterious lands of Lorule.
And unless I'm crazy, was that a lady version of Gannon causing all of the trouble? And does the Lorule version of Zelda have long black locks? I can hear fanboys and fanfic fanatics the world over absolutely squealing with excitement.
Along with the revelation that Link will be visiting Lorule and likely fighting Lady-Gannon, the trailer also reveals a couple of new details concerning the game, as well as reiterating some previously announced awesomeness.
For starters, there's a lot of hovering platforms and vertical interplay going on this time around, which means this is a 3DS game you might actually want to play with the 3D turned on. Secondly, Link now has the ability to turn into a chalk drawing of himself painted along a wall, allowing him to shimmy to and fro in order to reach new locations. That should make for some new and interesting puzzles.
It also looks like Lady-Gannon has the ability to trap people inside of paintings and, with Hyrule's version of Zelda looking to be one of her latest victims, it's no wonder Link is so eager to jump in and, once again, save the day.
Look to join in on that adventure when A Link Between Worlds arrives for the Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 22.
