The Legend of Zelda series is always associated with the color gold, and with the launch of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on November 22, the tradition continues. A new Nintendo 3DS XL bundle will launch on the same day that includes the Nintendo 3DS XL with gold and black coloring and the Triforce on the exterior, as well as a download code for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The system is gold on one side and black on the other, representing the two parallel worlds Link travels between in the game.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is set in the same world as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for Super NES and takes place in the same Hyrule after many years have passed. In this new game, Link must journey between two worlds, Hyrule and Lorule, using a mysterious power that lets him become a drawing on walls. Link’s ability to merge with walls allows players to solve puzzles and explore dungeons in a new way. Players are also able to buy or rent various items throughout the game, allowing them to explore dungeons in any order they want, adding a new level of freedom to the game play.
