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 console entries in the series. But this latest title might change that.  What do you think? Does A Link Between Worlds look like winner or will you reserve judgment until its release on November 22?

    How can you not like games you’ve never played? The handheld Zelda games have all been worthy of the franchise in my opinion.

  2. Drahken says:

    I second what Dave said. How can claim to not like them when you haven’t played them? The only representative you’ve played is probably the weakest entry in the series.

    Minish Cap might be my favorite Zelda game end stop. Loved ALttP on GBA too vs. Console. I really liked Phantom Hourglass as a companion to Windwaker although somehow I couldn’t get into Spirit Tracks. It’s one I’ll have to go back and try again.

  4. Lou says:

    I’m probably in the minority for liking Spirit Tracks, which I still find surprising. Guys like trains and you get to use Zelda, so what’s not to like?

    At any rate, I like the handheld entries, but they are different so I could see why some wouldn’t like them. I’d say they’re more humorous than the console entries, if I had to pick a primary difference.

    To answer the question, I will absolutely be getting this game.

  5. Lord Lemmy says:

    I’m with you, Lou, I liked Spirit Tracks as well. Definitely wouldn’t call it the best Zelda, but it was fun.

    Anyway, I’ve been working on beating ALttP before November 22 rolls around. Pretty close to done. I’m at the Tower of Ganon. ALttP has easily become one of my favorites in the franchise. I’d say it’s my favorite of the “Triforce” of Zelda games (my nickname for the classics: Zelda 1, 2, and ALttP)

  6. Lord Lemmy says:

    So yes, it looks like a winner to me already, so I’m going to be getting it, and I foresee it easily becoming one of my favorite handheld entries.

  7. Lou says:

    I think that’s a good way to describe the hand-held entries: fun. Not that the console games aren’t fun, but they’re more “grand”. Minish Cap was mentioned earlier. Great game and the talking cap was hysterical. Would like to have seen them return to that at some point.

  8. Mattiac says:

    I’m going to buy the game as soon as it’s released, but I assume that A Link to the past will still be my favorite Zelda game.

  9. Mattiac says:

    Lou: Can you imagine Link with the talking cap on in Smash and have it taunt the opponents? 🙂 And if you are playing against another Link the cap would just insist that you are the real Link and your opponent is a cheap copy. 🙂 I’m not into the Smash series, but I still think it would be fun to see.

  10. Mattiac says:

    Lou: I don’t like trains. Anyway, I hate that you can’t control with the D-pad in the two games for DS!! 🙁 Although there is an unofficial patch for the first of the two. 🙂

    I prefer to play games on console because of the big screen and I don’t have to look down all the time. I recently bought a white 3DS XL so I can play A Link to the past 2.

  11. Rakim Reid says:

    @Dave & Drahken: Mattiac touched on my reason. I prefer to play games on larger screens and Zelda, in my opinion, is best experienced on consoles. Plus, I am a console gamer at heart, besides a few choice series.

    So, in short, I know I don’t like something I never played because I know myself. If I try something and don’t like it and a similar thing comes along later, I won’t indulge. Now that I have gotten older, however, my tastes have changed. I am willing to give A Link Between Worlds a try. 🙂

  12. BornFlunky says:

    If that’s the case, Rakim, I would at least give Minish Cap a try if I were in your shoes. Far more dynamic than most of the other handheld entries (though I love all of them).

  13. Lou says:

    The people who said they prefer the larger screens support my main point on the Wii U – forcing people to look down at a smaller screen was a horrible idea.

  14. Mattiac says:

    Lou: You are correct! I haven’t bought a Wii U yet and that is one of the reasons. I’ve also been waiting for a white premium version.

  15. Rakim Reid says:

    @ BornFlunky I will look into it. I want play a Zelda title but don’t have the
    Cash for a Wii U plus Wind Waker. 🙁

  20. How is it that just anyone can write a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said something extremely impressive more like youve painted a pretty picture through an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, right here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not definitely say anything?

  21. What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this. You just say so many things that come from nowhere that Im fairly sure Id have a fair shot. Your blog is terrific visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this subject.
