Over the weekend Nintendo’s director of product marketing Bill Trinen sat down with IGN to discuss some upcoming features of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It’s an interesting interview as it discusses some of the differences between A Link Between Worlds and A Link to the Past. You can check out the full interview below.

Some highlights from the video for those who don’t want to watch it include:

  • Link can merge into just about any wall
  • The game does run at 60fps
  • Bill discusses how heiroglyphic Link looks like the Wind Waker opening
  • Wall Link runs on a meter that will pop you out when you’re out of time

Are you excited for A Link Between Worlds? Let us know in the comments below!

    Hello?! Anybody here?

    • Mr. J

      Well hello there

    • Shota

      hi sonic

  • bizzy gie


  • Sam

    I’m not interested actually.

    • David Noble

      Did you ever play A Link to the Past?

      • Sam

        Yes, I own it; I was just playing it earlier. I’m having trouble finding the pendant on death mountain. πŸ™

        • David Noble

          Good luck. I was just confused because you agreed with it being a better choice than Majora’s Mask, but you didn’t seem all that excited. You like it better, but not enough to buy it, i guess?

          • Sam

            Well I like LttP; I just meant I’d rather see MM on the WiiU than on the 3DS.

  • LopsidedPasta

    Finally, the 3DS section has a pulse

  • AlThor

    Definite day 1 purchase!

  • CMB

    Link to the past was one of the best zelda games ever.Can’t wait for this!

  • Only a few are true gamers

    Awesome day one buy for me..Im glad they chose this over majora’s mask..If they want majora mast put on the wii u in HD

    • Sam

      My thoughts exactly.

      • Only a few are true gamers

        Thanks man

        • David Noble

          Just to get it out there, does anyone notice how all of the comments say “in 7 years” instead of “5 minutes ago” or “2 days ago” or such? It might be fixed by the time you’re reading this, but it definitely says it right now, while I’m writing this.

  • Zackary Bruley

    I had heard something that they wanted to make a new Zelda IP for the 3DS before remaking MM. I am still Hopeful that in the next 2-3 years, we will see a 3DS/Wii U MM remake.

    • Pikachief

      They said a new Zelda game on 3DS before remaking either MM or ALttP. They couldnt decide which one at the moment. So instead they made a new Zelda game in the world of A Link to the Past, killing 2 birds with one stone.

      But yes I would love a Wii U Majora’s Mask remake.

  • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

    lol…Shame on me for just now realising, that he looks like that D:

    I really love everything we’ve heard about by now. Always liked the style of A Link to the Past and 60fps look gorgeous on the 3DS (still jelous of 3DS MH players πŸ˜€ )

    Guess the 3DS purchase is almost justified now (I’m still not completely sure with PS4 coming soon, but in the moment MH4’s confirmed for Europe I’ll run out and get one ^.^)

    • Pikachief

      Mario and Luigi, Pokemon X & Y, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Ocarina of Time HD, Star Fox 3D, Kid Icarus, Resident Evil Revelations, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and Animal Crossing? Those didn’t do it for you before? D: lol πŸ˜› I’m sure there’s more good ones, thats just off the top of my head though…

      • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

        Actually…No they don’t justify a buy for me (just now) πŸ˜€

        Don’t get me wrong those are good games, but I either don’t like the genre (Star Fox and Kid Icarus) or I have the possibility to play games, that are (almost) the same/very similar on my other consoles ^^
        I’m saving money for the PS4 now, but after I got that one the 3DS WILL be the next console/handheld I buy.

  • TechTrooper64

    Okay im totally getting this game its official

  • Dark Link

    Excited? Nope, skipping it altogether. I haven’t been excited for a Zelda game since Windwaker and I didn’t even end up buying that. Nintendo are all out of ideas.

    • Silent

      That is just you. For me, Skyward sword gameplay was an excellent idea.

    • David Noble

      *Nintendo is all out of ideas
      Not that I agree, but still, it’s not that hard to get it right.

      • Dark Link

        You should work on your English.

        • David Noble

          Nintendo is a single company. It is comprised of many people, so saying “the people at Nintendo are” is correct, whereas saying “Nintendo are” is incorrect, because Nintendo is singular, not plural.

          • Dark Link

            No, I used the plural verb ‘are’ instead of the singular verb ‘is’ because I am specifically referring to a sub-section within Nintendo as opposed to the company as a whole.

            Seriously, get a clue.

            Look it up? That’s funny because you’re stupid.

            Then again, you’re American so you guys tend to see collective nouns as singular units which further confirms your stupidity.

          • Zorlac79

            So they don’t teach education where you are from, just ignorance and racism.
            Or maybe that is just you and your families traits. What a waste of space.
            But then again, you are probably only 10 – 12, it shows in your grammar and intellect.

          • Dark Link

            Yerp yerp. Bye

        • David Noble

          Although it is comprised of many people, Nintendo itself is a single company, so it is singular. It’s basic 3rd grade English… and 4th grade… and 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th. Look it up.

  • Super Buu

    Nintendo 3DS: Competition? Never heard of it.

  • Edward

  • Pikachief

    My second favorite game (SMRPG, hard to beat) is ALttP and I’ve been playing it since I was a wee child πŸ˜› I’ll still start it up and do a 100% playthrough in one sitting sometimes hahaha. CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS.

  • David Noble

    Most…Epic…3DS Game…Ever!

  • spaniel

    Ha! I knew I saw that hieroglyphic Link somewhere before! How effing sweet! Maybe a Link Between Worlds is a bridge to Wind Waker of sorts? I cannot WAIT to play this game πŸ™‚
