Nintendo Direct Reveals A Link to the Past Sequel and Earthbound for Virtual Console
As has become their traditional vehicle for release news, Nintendo broadcast a new Direct video this morning, showcasing a number of upcoming products (most for the 3DS), including several previously unanounced titles. After a series of not-so-subtle hints from series creator Shigeru Miyamoto over the past year, a 2.5D follow-up to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was unveiled for the 3DS. Set to be released this holiday, this sequel will retain familiar mechanics from the SNES classic, with the notable addition of the ability for the player to change Link into a drawing to traverse otherwise unreachable corners. An official name has not yet been specifed as of this writing, but expect to hear further details soon.
