Not everyone is lucky enough to attend the New York Comic Con (NYCC) 2013. That's why Nintendo decided to put together a video of the highlights from a panel discussion with "Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds" producer, Eiji Aonuma. Fans will surely appreciate the gesture.
Aonuma reportedly traveled to New York to attend the panel discussion for Nintendo's upcoming video game "Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds."
He gave tips on how to play the game and where players can go if they want to rent or buy weapons for different dungeons. He said that he prefers renting to buying because it is much cheaper.
He also talked about the difference between the "Legend of Zelda" games, "A Link to the Past" and "A Link Between Worlds."
Basically, the main difference between the two games is the fact that the newer one is in 3D, which makes it more realistic compared to the older one. "A Link Between Worlds" also lets Link cross into Hyrule, a parallel-dimension. He gains the ability to transform into a living painting that can merge into walls and cross over worlds. It is still set in the world of "A Link to the Past."
A new trailer of "A Link Between Worlds" with never before seen footages was shown to the crowd.
Plus, he discussed the difficulties in transforming an older game to be used for the latest Nintendo 3DS.
"Taking that "Link to the Past" world and turning it into real 3D was not that simple," said Aonuma.
He also spoke briefly about "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, which can be used on the Wii U. It now has new features including the Tingle bottle, which enables players to connect with each other over the Miiverse, Nintendo's social network.
The video made by Nintendo is a nice touch, especially for fans of the game who are interested to see how the game is played.
Nintendo's action-adventure game "The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds" will be available for Nintendo 3DS on November 22, 2013.
