Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2

Much awaited sequel to classic Zelda game announced by Nintendo for the 3DS

Today, during a Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo revealed the upcoming release of Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 on the 3DS, much to the delight of many a Zelda fan.

According to Nintendo, the new game is set to take place in the familiar world of the 1992 classic, but will follow a brand new storyline and showcase loads of exciting new dungeons that are just waiting to be explored.

In addition to the new story and dungeons, Link will sport a new ability whereby he can transform into a moving hieroglyphic and navigate through the game in a way not seen before. This new skill will allow the player to view Link’s environment from an entirely different perspective which will be essential for solving puzzles in the game.

Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 is set to be released at the end of 2013 and you can check out its trailer here:

Or if you really, really want to see the trailer in its full glory, Nintendo is also bringing the trailer out in 3D and will be available for download later via its 3DS eShop.

I guess I'll be buying a 3DS.
