Zelda Director: LttP Sequel “Departure” from Previous Games

Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma spoke recently about the upcoming Link to the Past sequel for 3DS. As with the original game, players will shift between Light and Dark worlds. However, despite the classic top-down perspective, Aonuma said the game will be a “departure” from the usual Zelda fare. In particular, he stated that the staple of finding items to progressively open up the game world “certainly feels different from [the developer’s] point of view.”

Additionally, Link will have the ability to jump into the walls as some kind of drawing, ala Phanton Ganon from Ocarina of Time. The game will also make some use of the 3DS’ 3D capabilities, although no further details were available.

Zelda: Link to the Past to Get 3DS Sequel

Some twenty-odd years since its debut, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past will be getting a direct sequel, as revealed on a recent Nintendo Direct. Though it lacks an international title, it is listed in Japan as A Link to the Past 2 and is not a remake of the original. The game is currently planned for a holiday release on the 3DS.
