OH SHIT NINTENDO BRING THIS STATESIDE.

*EDIT*
Apparently it was confirmed for a future release outside of Japan via an official Miiverse comment.

I feel this thread is totally worth bumping after the last Nintendo Direct. Should've done so sooner, but yeah, Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages coming to the 3DS eShop and a sequel to LttP is in the making~
EVERYONE GET HYPE.

Good to see a video with the bottom screen in the view and someone who can actually play is great. Plus the music sounds pretty good. :D

My body is so damn ready. That music and atmosphere... Ohhh man, it's seriously so perfectly LttP universe. I know I've gushed about this a bit already but man... That dim atmosphere, that eerie music, (and wonderfully deadly-sounding boss music,) that young Link, even the sound effects are gloriously nostalgia-ridden and straight out of LttP. I love Nintendo for being such gods of combining old and new. I can feel nostalgic while still enjoying a new experience. I don't even care about the drawing gimmick anymore, I just can't wait for this game. I hope Nintendo packs plenty of content and side stuff to do into it, the more I see of this game the more I feel that it'll skyrocket into my list of favorite Zelda games.
Spoiler! :
And it's cool seeing Moldorm again, even though they made him easier to beat, haha.

I saw this on Escher Girls and thought it was kind of a dumb idea. I honestly think it's a good idea to have more games with a female lead, but doing what looks like a gender-swapped Link seems kind of a wasted opportunity. Why not play as Zelda from SSBB, where she can swap between Princess Zelda and Sheik. You could do a sort of a stealth/action platformer game where both have different attributes that aid in accomplishing goals, like Zelda can use magic to clear large groups of enemies and float to reach certain areas, and Sheik could do stealth and more targeted attacks. As for story, it would be kind of clever to set it as going on in one of the other previous game continuities with Zelda doing things in the background that play into the main story that Link is unaware of.

Oh man, I've seen and talked about this before.

I pretty much agree. I feel like just slapping a Link costume on Zelda and giving her some powers is kind of lame honestly. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool idea, but I'd much rather see this kind of idea given to another character entirely completely separate from the Zelda series. Not because it shakes up the Zelda series so much but because this is such a cool idea that I'd rather see this being made its own series that gets more games than see it get maybe one game and be considered "one of those spin-off games". It has much more potential as a separate game in my opinion just because the idea is so unique.

That said, if there were to be a game starring Zelda, why not just keep with her current design? She can still be a kick ass battle princess in a dress or going around with Shiek. She's already really powerful; changing up her outfit might make her more versatile but it should be something more unique, not just a Link costume pallete swap. Yeah I know, it's the traditional hero's clothing but still. If you're going to go through the trouble of making an entire game situated around Zelda, why not give her her own outfit specially designed for her? It would further distinguish the game and it would be completely acceptable to change up the Hero's clothing.

Hey guys.
The listing is frustratingly sparse on info, saying only that you can "Take on a more challenging difficulty level,"

This pleases me.

Dude if they make New Game+ actually have increased difficulty that would be rad. I guess it might be something kind of like Skyward Sword's take on it, though.

New boxart for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds! (linked because it's huge)

That NFC logo on the top right definitely intrigues me. Could we be seeing some online multiplayer or DLC? Oh I can't wait to find out more! Here's hoping we get a Nintendo Direct soon.

Holy shiznits dat box is gorgeous!!! They just keep getting prettier <3

Online multiplyer sounds awesome! and maybe DLC dungeons? That would be cool. I remember really enjoying those little multiplyer minigames from one the DS games... I think it was phantom hourglass they were on, I can't really remember...

YESSSSS SOMEONE ELSE GOT THIS REFERENCE HAHAHA! It wasn't the first thing I thought of when I saw the names but afterward I just couldn't stop associating it with them.

All I want in my Zelda are dungeons. I want to be able to solve riddles and access hidden areas. That's Zelda for me.

That turning into a wolf nonsense really turned me off. Twilight Princess is easily my least favorite of the 3D Zeldas.
