Zelda: A Link To The Past Sequel Coming Soon

The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda 1992 sequel A Link to the Past is well remembered, but it seems as if it's been overshadowed by later sequels such as Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and even Skyward Sword.  Despite the greatness of Past, Nintendo has never found the time or worthy idea needed to return to that iteration of the series when top-down perspective gameplay was king.  That all changes this holiday season, thankfully, as the company has announced a new Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo 3DS that follows on from the Link to the Past formula with some new tricks and gimmicks including variable height levels and a new talent for Link that allows him to become a living 2D drawing embedded in a wall (think Paper Link, I suppose).  A Link to the Past is still my favorite Zelda game (Wind Waker is a close second), so I'm very glad to see a new title that plays in that world.  I hope the new game can live up to Past's legacy, as it has some big Pegasus Boots to fill.
