Zelda LttP 2 for 3DS
« on: April 17, 2013, 10:44:45 AM »
Spotted this on the latest Nintendo Direct.

Apparently the rumors of this actually being a thing are true but they didn't exactly mention that it would be a mostly new game instead of a straight remake.

Also the visuals are kinda whoa. (Thank god there's no yapping or yelping this time around.)

they had one job.

and if that job was to actually get me excited for a Zelda game, they succeeded.

Yeah, this is probably the best gaming news I've seen in a decade or more. I was excited at first thinking it was just a 3DS remake of the original, but was even MORE excited to find out it was an all new game. Add to this the fact the big N announced Earthbound will be released on the WiiU virtual console and I'm about as happy as I've ever been about gaming.

Link to the past was my first SNES game, and I have subsequently purchased every re-release of it ever made, aside from rare versions or special collectors versions.


Damn Nintendo, just when my dislike for them hits a peak, I see something like this and I long for it....now I need to buy a 3ds.

TASTY!

This is the first thing with "Zelda" in the title that has excited me since the Ocarina of Time came out on N64. Very cool indeed.
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

I have yet to find a reason to get a 3DS. Now I have one. This looks beautiful. Although I'm a bit iffy on the "turning into a drawing" business. It just doesn't seem to jive with the "rules" of this world. We'll see.

It's a sequel, not a remake. You need to start reading the actual news articles before posting.

I guess you missed the part where it said this was a sequel.

I'm quite happy with 3DS Nintendo these days.  The majority of the games I'm looking forward to are all on Nintendo systems.

This and Bravely Default may make me finally get a 3DS.

It's only set in the same world. Everything else is new.

Just the fact that this is a new(-ish) 2D overhead Zelda (that isn't stylus driven, not like I had a problem with that in particular but the DS games were really fucking spartan in terms of content) is excellent news in of its own right. The fact that its a direct sequel to LttP (and most likely Ancient Stone Tablets as well) is just icing on the cake. Here's hoping that the new game is just as loaded with secrets and tricks to pull as the original version was (and also to pull a New Mystery and include a remade AST as well).

In Alisha's defense, the first point when I read the article said it was in fact a remake, but the dungeons were all getting redone. Even the topic title is lttp, Link to the Past. Can't help but assume remake by that.

TASTY!

And in my defense, I was sort of going for a double meaning pun with the title since Ancient Stone Tablets is more or less LttP 2 (with a heavily remixed overworld, only 8 dungeons, no dark world, and a plot that takes place after the original game).

Assuming they acknowledge AST (or didn't change that much with the plot) this will in essence be LttP 3(D).
