A Link Between Worlds, like many of the older and handheld Zelda titles, follows a top- down perspective of gameplay. This game, unlike its predecessors, includes stereoscopic 3D graphics powered by the 3DS. The top screen is used for actual gameplay, while the bottom screen is used for quest statuses, equipment, maps, and etc.
While the overworld is very similar to A Link to the Past, all of the game’s dungeon designs are brand new. Nintendo has even designed some of the dungeon areas to utilize the 3DS’ 3D effects to highlight puzzles and obstacles. Many items from A Link to the Past are making a return for its sequel, including but not limited to; bow and arrows and the Magic Hammer. New to this game is a self-recharging magic meter, similar to the energy meter in Skyward Sword.
Of course the most notable change to the series within this game is Link’s ability to enter walls and become like art or a drawing. When Link enters a wall the camera angle will shift allowing gamers to move him along the walls to reach new areas. This new ability is also noted to allow Link to enter cracks to the other dimension of Lorule.
The game’s original box-art featured a Nintendo Network logo which made many speculate that A Link Between Worlds would include some kind of online play. This icon has since been removed from newer iterations of art.
A Link Between Worlds takes places after the events of A Link to the Past, but the developers have noted that this Link is not the same one that defeated Ganon in the Dark World. A Link Between Worlds is the first addition to the “Sealing War” timeline since the two Oracle games were released onto the Gameboy Color.
Like A Link to the Past, A Link Between Worlds features another world, parallel to Hyrule. This other world is known as Lorule. Inside Lorule is a whole other kingdom that seems to mirror Hyrule in some way. There is a new female royalty known as Princess Hilda who seems to be aware of Link by some means.
