Aonuma: “Recent Zelda games have been rather linear”

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the Nintendo 3DS has been praised for not only its call back to A Link to the Past but its departure from the usual norms of the popular franchise (item renting and choosing dungeon order, to be exact). However, aside from a few drastic changes, longtime Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma hopes to change more for the series’ betterment. In an interview ...

Gaze at Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

  Nintendo demoed gameplay of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds at New York Comic Con. The company showed off some of the game’s features including the new item renting system. It all looks absolutely delightful. But to be honest:  I never liked handheld Zeldas. In fact, Oracle of Ages for Gameboy Color was the last — and only — portable Zelda I played. I prefer con...
