ESH | “A Link Between Worlds” Gives Us the Best of Old and New
After releasing an amazing re-skinned version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the 3DS, it was time for Nintendo to decide what to do next. On the one hand, they would really not like to start a reputation of only re-releasing their old games, but on the other The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is one of the best games ever made. In an effort to have their cake and eat it too, they ended up choosing both options and going with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds as their next project. Shockingly, they were wildly successful at creating a brand new game, that feels new in a number of ways, that is at the same time very much A Link to the Past in nature.
