Comparing the Zelda 3DS Overworld to A Link to the Past: A Bit Too Close for Comfort

GenGAME writes: "Both Reggie (during Nintendo Direct) and Mr. Aonuma (on Miiverse) have said that the game features the same world as A Link to the Past, but with “a new story and new dungeons and puzzles.” However, neither of them has even remotely suggested that the overworld has changed significantly from the SNES game." (3DS, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2, Zelda 3DS)

It's too bad that I really like the concept, but really don't like how Nintendo keeps insisting "same world, new dungeons/puzzles and story." Do we REALLY want to experience the same world? I think not. Maybe we want to see Hyrule in a different way - but that doesn't mean we want Hyrule to be more or less remade pixel-for-pixel.

Well, I guess it depends on how much of the map is identical. Hopefully the map is much bigger.

I'm HOPING the game substitutes new areas for the Dark World parts of LttP. I'd be fine with the first few dungeons in the old world, as long as there's something new to explore later on.

But with the NSMB track record, I'm not believing anything until I see it.

We will probably get to see whole new parts of the world never seen before.

It's like they couldn't decide whether to make a new game or a remake.

And it looks like CDI Link and Wind Waker Link had a baby.

Why's this so shocking? They said it would be this way.
legendoflex  +   908d ago
Just because Super Mario Bros. 3 took place in the Mushroom World doesn't mean its world was a copy of Super Mario Bros. 1.
kirbyu  +   908d ago
No, Nintendo said this game would have the same overworld as LttP.

I'm sure there is more too it. There are going to me similarities no doubt (probably due to nostalgic reasons), but there will probably be new stuff included as well. Btw the 3d trailer looks amazing.

Probably the only one, but I like the 2D original look much more. Of course, LttP is one of my all time favorite games (definitely favorite Zelda game), so I might be jaded a bit.

ALttP is my all time favorite Zelda.
Man, this game looks good even for todays standards, now imagine how great this game was 20 years ago.
A perfect Zelda in any way, huge over world map and back then it was gigantic.
Even if they make the over world 1:1 they probably will add some new areas, and because of the new optics it feels fresh, for me.
Just wish they make some extra hard puzzles in the dungeons like in the original.
I will have to borrow a 3ds from someone, just for this game.
I'm not to old, but I feel like I'm to old to buy a hand held device, in my opinion hand helds are for kids.
Unfortunately I don't have kids, but if I had, I would buy them a 3ds.

Dude, I'm 42, married with no kids, and I have a 3DS... I'm not embarassed or ashamed by it -- just buy yourself one! You won't regret it.

so in fact this game is just a Link to The Past kind of DLC? It really feels like a remake to me the monsters are the same dungeons are also the same.
