they have only used a number for Zelda games once, so most likely that is just placeholder

I'm gonna call "No" on this one. "Zelda 2014" or "Zelda 3DS Next" or "New Zelda" is a placeholder. They're calling out a particular title in the franchise, so this should stick.
--Onilink--  +   956d ago
Well its also very common for them to put a number on the Japanese version and then just come out with a subtitle when released in America. Luigi's Mansion is a good example for that. Then again, they might stick with LttP2, i dont really mind

"Roughly translated, the title appears as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2."

My ass.

It says "kamigami no toraifôsu 2" which translates directly to "Triforce of the Gods 2".

Funny "journalists".
nrvalleytime  +   956d ago
Read the article. That's discussed.

Funny readers.
Tapani  +   956d ago
Right, true!

But the translation is still wrong. So I should get at least 5 points :P

Funny "no excuses left"
nrvalleytime  +   956d ago
... the original translation of ALTTP was "Legend of the Triforce." So the original translation changed to A Link to the Past. Which means that... this will receive the same title change. Meaning a rough translation will be A Link to the Past 2.

Funny "Bang my head against a wall"

Edit: I'll give you +2.5 points for a good discussion.

I understand what you are trying to say, that's why I said that the translation is wrong again.

It is not "Legend of the Triforce". It's "Triforce of the Gods" or at most "Divine Triforce". There's no mention of "Legend" which is a completely different thing etymologically.

I'm just saying cuz I'm a translator of sorts :P

K but it's called something different in Japan I think. The original that is.

Well if the current gen doesn't work lets revive the Snes games :)). The true Nintendo console Super-Nintendo.
maniacmayhem  +   956d ago
Well this just confirms that 3DS has won the portable gaming war hands down. Link to the Past is the best Zelda game I have ever played. I praise that game as being one of the best Super Nintendo games of all times right along side Earthbond, Actraiser and Super Metroid.

Slaughtered just like your opponents in the ring. Well done Sgt.

What I don't fully understand is if it's a retail game or downloadable game, I'm assuming the former.
