THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: A LINK BETWEEN WORLDS

Nintendo3DS™ [RPG]

A Link Between Worlds manages to combine a tribute to A Link to the Past and a brand new game concept into one title! Making use of the graphical and 3D capabilities of the 3DS the world, and especially the dungeons, will look slightly different from previous installations. 

Making use of the 3DS user interface the top screen shows the main game, while the bottom screen shows the map, Rupees, item buttons (X and Y), and a button that has been labeled "Collect," which allows players to open a twenty-slot inventory. The touch screen has a similar appearance to that of the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time. The A button controls basic actions like transforming while the B button is dedicated to the sword.

The biggest feature is definitely the new skill provided to Link! At the expense of a new purple meter (a type of energy) Link can become a drawing to cling onto walls and move along them horizontall. Reportedly this mechanic will allow Link to travel between the 'Dark' and 'Light' worlds (possibly A Link to the Past reference).
