"Link to the Past 2" not only got a name, but a new trailer! Nothing dramatically new was shown off, mostly the same stuff that we have seen before, but it's still worth checking out.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is slated as a 2013 release.

Stay tuned for more details!

It'd be cool if the world you were in is on the top screen, and the bottom screen shows what's happening in the other world.

@Mop it up
I think that feature would be better as an optional toggle function, rather than something that's always on, or else it would tie up all use of the bottom screen.

I never played any of the 2d Zelda games, so no matter what, I am really excited to play this game. !

Just my 2 cents, Im sure the overworld isn't exactly the same as ALTTP. I could be wrong, but I think everyone will be very happy when they play this game.

I love zelda but i think this game could use a plot like Skyward sword or Ocarina which are pretty good.

I'd really prefer a minimalistic approach to the story, just like the original. We get enough babble in the 3D games. This one should be old school in gameplay and presentation.

I love A Link to the Past. Love it. But I really hope this game amounts to more than "A Link to the Past: Master Quest."

Remember when LttP kind of pulls the rug out from under you and reveals the Dark World? I kind of want to see this game do the same thing. We're all assuming that the world is generally the same as LttP...but what if we're really only seeing a small part of the map, or what if the Dark World is completely different?

I think it was one of the NWR podcasts who brought up this interesting tidbit - the Dark World in LttP looks the way it does because it is a reflection of what is in Ganon's heart when he claims the Triforce. Why would it look the same in A Link Between Worlds? Link was the last one who claimed the Triforce. Shouldn't it reflect his heart? Or did another villain get a hold of it? Or is there a THIRD world that we also have to navigate? I have so many questions....but they're all mainly because I'm just hoping that there's more to this game that meets the eye.

Yeah, I think there must be a lot of things that they aren't telling us about... I'd be thrilled if there was a light world, a dark world, AND a new overworld area "between" them.

I too am hoping that the game isn't just a Master Quest sort of remixing of LTTP... but I have to be honest. Even if that is the case, I'll probably still enjoy the hell out of it. My concerns are more with Aonuma's involvement. I want a pure Takashi Tezuka style Zelda without the Aonuma elements.

One thing's for sure - I'm glad we've moved away from touch screen control. I wasn't a fan of it at all in Phantom Hourglass.

One nitpick I have with this game is how they are using young Link's voice even though the character is clearly much older in all of the promotional art. Really too much work to hire somebody else to make a few grunts and such?

I'm SUPER disappointed by the lack of touch controls. That was the one thing that really made the DS games stand out. In a good way, IMO.

Ah well. Back to the standard stuff now, I guess! (which was never bad, so no real complaints here, I suppose)


That bugged me too, with the GBA release of A Link To The Past. The art stuff in the SNES game shows link in the age of... I'd guess 15 or 16. But his voice was clearly "young" Link from Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker. (and later The Minish Cap) Why? It makes no sense.

The latest video really impressed me. I couldn't care less if the overworld is reused or what not, as long as the dungeons deliver I'll be quite satisfied.

Kind of like 4 Swords Adventures?
