BackgroundTwo worlds collide in an all-new adventure set in the world of Super NES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In this new tale, Link can transform into a living painting to cross into a dark, parallel-dimension Hyrule. Venture through the puzzles, traps and hidden rooms of deadly dungeons to save both worlds from certain doom!
This beloved, top-down world springs to life in 3D, offering the perfect backdrop for a sweeping new tale. Dungeons seem deeper, darker and more treacherous, even as Link and his attacks pop out, highlighting the nonstop action. The pace is faster than ever, and item management is a breeze on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen. Shoot an arrow, toss a boomerang, bomb a wall, then merge into a painting to slide between two worlds—all in a matter of seconds. With gameplay, visuals, and controls this smooth and consistent, no Zelda adventure has ever been so action-packed.
- A daring adventure awaits Link in Hyrule, where he can use his new ability to become a “drawing” and merge into walls of dungeons and fields. This opens up new ways to explore, and puzzle elements that give Link access to locations he could not otherwise reach.
- Link will have to explore not one, but two distinct worlds, including the dark and mysterious Lorule, if he wants to vanquish the evil Yuga.
- The game brings this top-down, 2D world to life with elevation and depth enabled by the Nintendo 3DS system’s 3D visuals. The stunning 3D visuals are made possible by the constant frame rate of 60 frames per second.
- Using the touch screen, touch and drag the item from the items window and switch the item assigned to the X and/or Y buttons.
