Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 announced for 3DS

They saved the best til last. The all mighty Reggie Fils-Aime took to the "stage" right at the end of Nintendo's most recent Nintendo Direct presentation to announce an all new Zelda 3DS title set in the A Link to the Past world.

The new game borrows inspiration from one of the most popular Zelda titles, A Link To The Past. Gameplay is heavily based off of the SNES classic, but features newly designed levels to suit the 3D capabilities of the 3DS. Using Link's mallet, you can pommel a "Diglet" (for lack of a better reference) type enemy, jump on it, and then get vaulted to the platform above. Other new features allow Link to become a 2D image on a wall, letting him access new areas.

This new Zelda title has yet to be officially named, but some are already calling it, "A Link To The Past 2". It will be available in Australia before the end of 2013.

Edit: Reggie presented the game for the US stream. Satoru Shibata presented the game for the EU stream.

UPDATE: A 3D video is up and available to view on the Nintendo eShop.

Wow... the 3DS support is just amazing!!

Wii U who? :P

Plus it is A Link To The Past 2? :O
The official credits at the end of the EU stream show "The Legend Of Zelda (TEMP) (3DS)"

The game is based in the same game world as A Link To The Past, but has a new storyline.
Well it's as good as. Set in the same world but with a new story? isn't that what all sequels are?
Plus anyway it makes for a better headline every other site is putting it up as so, people will search for it and they arn't coming here. Even the Official Nintendo Mag is calling it so www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/...

Anyhow these announcements are just amazing! who in gods name doesn't want a 3DS now? the Wii U needs the same love.
this looks AWESOME

Looks amazing! 3DS is really turning out to be a must have. Shame that Sony don't show Vita the same love.
Olly, when you write a news article, you can name it whatever you want. I write my articles in my head, with the facts that are presented to me, to create a unique read. "A Link To The Past 2" is not fact, hence why I stated it as "officially" unnamed.
The Japanese title is The Legend of Zelda The Triforce of the Gods 2, and the original A Link To The Past was called The Legend of Zelda The Triforce of the Gods in Japan, so I think it's safe to call it that until Nintendo unveil an official title in the West.
No offense @metalliguy
It's just when people google "A Link To The Past 2" there not gonna find this are they? that was my logic is all plus this is the only article/news not calling it so.
But yeah i know you can call it all you want i was just saying.
On the actual news course it has to be in your head...
No offence taken, but it is pissing me off.

Hey Jay...

Shut up :P

I'm not really a fan of it in the video, but I'll wait to see how it plays. Could open up some cool puzzles.

Or be shit.

One of those will happen.
Someone changed the title i see [Shifty]
LttP is my favourite Zelda and just looking at the vid, I doubt this'll live up to that title. Still early days though, so definitely staying tuned for more info. Hoping that it's a lot better than the DS Zelda games.

Reggie stated in an interview that the pace of Wii releases would increase dramatically after E3. The 3ds took a couple of years to get where it is now. I think 18 months from now the Wii U library will be looking similarly strong.

I'm a bit of a badass.

One can hope, til then i think i am just gonna bathe in all this 3DS awesomeness. [Derp]
U guys should watch the trailer on ur 3ds. Get it from eshop. The 3d looks awesome. Also I'm liking the paper wall mechanic looks like u can have fun with it
Link doesn't have pink hair :(
Just saw the video.

The chalk-wall-walk-thing mechanic is a bit strange...
But most bizarre Zelda gimmicks have eventually worked out.

I still don't know how they managed to mess up the swimming in SS, though. It was horrible...
Looks really, really nice.

Thanks, I try :P

Not enough.

That note collecting in the water quest was my most hated Zelda one of all time.
It looks fantastic in 3d.

Mine too.
Was so unnecessarily frustrating...
