Nintendo revealed several bits of news and game announcements during its Nintendo Direct presentation this morning, but the company saved the best for last. An all-new Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past game is coming to the 3DS this holiday season.
Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime said during the announcement that the 3DS game was incorporating the hardware's 3D capabilities in the dungeon design. In one example, we saw Link smashing round, smiling buttons in the face with a mallet, turning them into frowny-faced divots. They seemed to get over it pretty quickly, bouncing back up and launching Link upward onto the tower's next level.
Another new tool in Link's arsenal is his ability to turn into a 2D drawing. Players can then traverse along flat surfaces such as walls to solve puzzles. The best example in the clip had Link scurrying along a wall and through an otherwise impassable barred window. Sometimes 2D isn't a bad thing.
Nintendo says the 3D presentation is so integral to the still-unnamed game that they'll be releasing a 3D clip of it in action sometime today in the eShop. Stay tuned.

Ah.. not liking the idea of going 2D seems like it would kill the immersion for me. It's not like in Majora's mask where the transformations fit the world this is just random.
Oh god.... ITS HAPPENING!!!!JSDFBHSDBFHFHSD.
awweeee.. i dont have a 3ds :S. dfsdgsd
Why on the 3DS tho,I guess Ill have to get one now.
I had hours of fun playing Zelda: A Link To The Past on my 16 bit Nintendo This is cool that the game game would released also on the 3 Ds.
Crap. This may be the game that forces me to buy the 3DS...
I hope it has a better feel than LttP, but it doesn't look like it does.
A new Zelda game?! Damn I need to get a 3DS soon just waiting for a game like this one to come out
why no mention of yoshis island here?
Just watched the trailer on my 3DS, looks fantastic. Between this and the Wind Waker remake, us Zelda fans should be pretty busy until we get more info on the new Wii U Zelda game.
I. CAN'T. WAIT!!!!!
My body is ready.
This is going to be great.
