"The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" Gets a Sequel on 3DS

Follow-up is due out this holiday season in the west, early 2014 in Japan

Nintendo saved the best for last in this morning's Nintendo Direct press conference, with the announcement of a new Zelda game for Nintendo 3DS. This isn't just any old Zelda game, though. This one is a follow-up to one of the best games of all time, 1991's The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

 

The Japanese title presented for the new game was The Legend of Zelda: Kamigami no Triforce 2, which connects it directly to the original and sets it in the same world. This one features an original storyline and entirely new dungeons, with additions like Link's handy ability to turn into a drawing on walls. See it in action below.

 

 

We'll get to play it for ourselves when it arrives on Nintendo 3DS in the west this holiday season. A Japanese release is set to follow in 2014.
