Nintendo announced in today’s Nintendo Direct that a new Zelda game for the 3DS is in the works and is slated for December 2013. The game is said to be taken in the same world as A Link to the Past and will feature “layered gameplay,” by allowing Link to jump up to another level of a dungeon.
One of the new additions to the game will be, that Link will be able to make himself a movable painting on a wall, allowing him to reach places he has not been able to get to before.
The game is set to be released this year in December, but we will see if Nintendo can uphold its due date. I expect we will see more game footage this come E3 in a few months, as well as The Wind Waker Remastered and possibly Legend of Zelda Wii U.
