A Link To The Past 2 is exactly what Nintendo needs

Nintendo could have taken the easy way out with this title. Hardcore fans would line up in droves to purchase just a graphically updated version of A Link To The Past. Taking that universe, updating it, and then crafting an original Zelda story around it, is not only out of character for Nintendo, but also a great idea. (3DS, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2)

I have Link to the past on my snes. Gameplay for this looks good, but god does the artstyle kill all excitement for it. What were they thinking? Same for the new Yoshi's island 3DS game it has lost any charm the original had same for LTTP2. Nintendo should hire some better art directors or something.

I have doubts on YI2 as well (too zoomed in, Yoshi has weird animations)

On the other hand I do like LTTP2, it's what you would expect from a Top-down, 3D Zelda (the art style is up to personal taste) and the 3D effects are impressive.

I'm excited to see if the game actually plays well.

A Link to the Past was one of the more mature Zelda games...it had a nice dark undertone to it. I don't like this style for it's sequel...too childish, A Link to the Past should have evolved.

I hope the music is just as good as Link to the Past. In fact, I hope it's comprised of a lot of remixes from the game's soundtrack. :]

I thought the art style was a little bland, but honestly I don't care as long as the gameplay and world are anywhere close to Link to the Past quality. If it's half as good as its predecessor, it'll be a classic.

It sure is, I'm definitely picking this up day 1!!!

Why is everyone calling it ATTP2? They said it's NOT a sequel but it takes place in the same world as ALTTP....that clearly means its NOT ALTTP2, not to mention Link's Awakening is the direct sequel to ALTTP.

But what does that mean?

All of the games take place in the same "world," after all.

They've sort of pretty much said it's a sequel. Check out this video.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the Wii U was a great game though?

So this will be the SAME game as Link To The Past on SNES, but only better graphics?

No thanks.

I already have this game and have completed it many times.
