The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the seventeenth game in the Legend of Zelda series and is a sequel to 1991 SNES game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The game is notably the first original Legend of Zelda made for the 3DS and takes advantage of the 3DS hardware to deliver 3D, which, apart from a graphical effect also has gameplay implications, such as granting a greater awareness of dangerous ledges and giving players a sense of their position relative to flying enemies.

The game is set in the “Sealing War” timeline and takes place six generations after the events of A Link to the Past, which means that players control a different incarnation of Link than that game. After the events of A Link to the Past, the royal family of Hyrule splits the Triforce, causing each part of the Triforce to return to its elected owner: one part goes to the dead demon king Ganon, one part stays with the Royal Family, while the third part goes to Link and hid descendants. Link, the apprentice of a blacksmith, is delivering a sword to Hyrule Castle when he encounters a figure named Yuga, who transforms a sage named Seres into a painting, defeats Link and then vanishes. Link is then granted the power of inter-dimensional travel, allowing him to travel between the world of Hyrule, and the dark world of Lorule, ruled by Zelda’s counterpart, Hilda.

The game uniquely features the ability for Link to transform into a two-dimensional mode, allowing Link to merge into a wall face and travel through it. This makes for innovative new gameplay possibilities, such as traveling through areas where there is no ground to stand on, or evading enemies. The player can also use the wall-merging ability to travel through cracks that connect Hyrule and Lorule. The game also features a new rental system: players can pick rent items from Ravio’s weapon shop, with the items being returned to Ravio should the player fall in battle. Later in the game, the player can simply buy the items, for a larger fee. The game takes advantage of the 3DS’ StreetPass capabilities: even enabled, the player may see other players appear in their game in the guise of “Shadow Links”. The player can fight these Shadow Links and upon winning, reap rewards.
