Nintendo announces new 'Legend of Zelda,' a sequel to 'Link to the Past'

LEGEND ZELDA

Nintendo announced a new entry in the Legend of Zelda series today. Good news: It’s a sequel to A Link to the Past, which is generally considered one of the flat-out best games ever made. Less-good-news: This is not the long-rumored Wii U HD Zelda game, but rather, a retro-ish 3DS adventure which imitates the top-down view of the original game. Nintendo released a video of the 3DS Zelda, which looks pretty nifty. You can watch it below – the game is currently slated to hit stores near the end of 2013.
