German Nintendo newsite and youtube channel NiNTENDOMiNATiON bring us 13 minutes of gameplay for the next Zelda 3DS game, dubbed A Link to the Past 2 or A Link to the Past Sequel. The video shows us what could be the first level leading up to the boss battle against Moldorm, from A Link to the Past.
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.

Earlier today, ebuch from the ZREO Team announced on ZREOMusic.com that ZREO will be closing its doors come June 12th, 2013. It is unfortunate that such a great project is coming to an end after just finishing their greatest creation: Twilight Symphony.
I have been a great fan of their work as many others do also, and hope that their next projects become just as successful.
Although they are closing down, it may not be bad news for everyone. They have decided to allow you to download Twilight Symphony legally for free, however they have not provided a source themselves. In this even Hyrule.net has brought up a mirror of the original sounds including the new Twilight Symphony available to be streamed via your browser. Download links will be provided soon, to download whole albums and eventually individual songs. In the meantime you can listen to them here: http://zreomirror.com/.
