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.

hell yes nintendo. hell yes. thank you!!!!!!
This is rad!
I'm soooo happy for the 3DS, but the Wii U ???
Nintendo COME ON !!!
Hey my favorite Zelda game finally gets some attention.
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (pause for breath) !!!!!!!!!!!
Kinda miss the 16 bit visuals, otherwise stoked for a "new" Zelda game.
Dang two Zelda games this fall/winter im going to be broke
The title of this headline was rather confusing. "An All-New Zelda: A Link To The Past" makes it sound like it's just a remake.
Ohhhh yeah! I played and beat A Link to the Past last year for the first time, and was entranced throughout the whole experience. Ocarina is still my favorite Zelda game (and my favorite game of all time), but A Link to the Past is still a masterpiece, and I can very much understand why many Zelda fans consider it their favorite. I can't wait for this! :D
OMG! And I thought that Windwaker's remake was neat. Wow, this is gonna make my handheld holiday dreams come true. Glad I played Link to the Past a few years ago in the Gameboy Advance version. It was a classic and this new Zelda's all the better for imitating it. Nintendo!!!! :D
Time to dust off my 3DS
I need a 3DS so badly. One day...one day...
Oh Yeah I cannot wait for this and other games to come out
This is absolutely just amazing. Link to the Past 2? When can I pre-order it?
Wow, that's fairly soon! So excited~!
Looks wired, but will still buy.
