Link to the Past 2 Announced for 3DS

On the Nintendo Direct, Reggie just announced a sequel to Link to the Past. Amazing. Will post new details as they arrive.

A New Game in The Legend of Zelda Series: Nintendo developers are working on a new game set in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, which launched for Super NES in 1992. The game makes use of the 3D abilities of Nintendo 3DS, and allows Link to become a drawing and move along walls. A 3D video of the new game is now available to download in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. The game is scheduled to launch this holiday season.

From Polygon:

Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, says the 3DS sequel will "reinvigorate the flat 2D world of A Link to the Past with a sense of height and volume" by utilizing the stereoscopic 3D capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS. The game, which does not have a final title in North America, will feature "an original storyline and all new dungeons."

Update: Nintendo confirmed to Polygon that the new Zelda game set in the world of A Link to the Past is being developed by series producer Eiji Aonuma and his team at Nintendo EAD.

Since it is clearly using the top screen, we can probably rule out stylus controls. I didn't mind them so much, but I'm glad we'll be (hopefully) returning to the classic controls. Let's get some good combat!

I played LTTP for the first time this year. So, it's like getting a sequel to a new game for me!

This is monumental news. Awesome stuff. I like the 3D gimmicks we're seeing so far, too.

I read about this on IGN, but the gifs...they make me feel like a girl posting on Youtube video featuring Justin Bieber.

I just thought about how the overworld could look with these graphics. THE FUCKING OVERWORLD!

My body wasn't ready for this Nintendo Direct. I'm seriously geeking out right now from all this news. This news right here completely overloaded the pleasure part of my brain. Hence, me jizzing in my pants.

Part of me thinks Nintendo was behind that Majora's Mask 3DS news yesterday, to throw us off the scent. Some serious misdirection there!

I wonder if it will be eShop or retail?

Both? I can't imagine this being an eShop only game.

Looks really good. I can't wait to try this one out!

3D video will be available in the 3DS eShop later today.


Yea, true, not sure why I was thinking it might be eShop only.

A lot of good news today. LttP is still my favorite Zelda, so I'm excited for a sequel.

This will be an event. Probably purchased x 3.

You know what would be icing on the cake? A 4 Swords-esque multiplayer mode included.

When I saw the title I thought, "this sounds risky", but upon actually seeing the footage, it's looking mighty promising! Awesome!

This looks great! I am sort of in shock on this one even though the writing was on the wall a while back.
