Nintendo has just announced that a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is on its way for the Nintendo 3DS. The game will feature new dungeons and a new storyline, and Link will be able to transform into a moving wall drawing, which will switch the camera perspective and allow some new gameplay mechanics.
According to Nintendo Europe President Satoru Shibata, “What we want to achieve with this new Zelda game is to reinvigorate the flat 2D world of A Link To The Past with the sense of height and volume using the three-dimensional display of Nintendo 3DS.
With it, it’s easier to differentiate levels in the environment and we can truly utilise height differences in dungeons as a puzzle-solving mechanic. While this game is set in the game world of A Link To The Past it features entirely new dungeons and an original story arc.”
