After all, I’m a self-professed classic Zelda nut, and the game seems obviously intended to draw old farts like me in with fancy nostalgia-fied Hyrules, remixed soundtracks, and reddish-haired Links.
"But what I really want doesn’t have anything to do with that surface-level nostalgia. It has to do with a nostalgia for the core of what Zelda is. And so far, based on what I’ve heard from Mr. Aonuma and others, Zelda 3DS sounds more like a shallow appeal to nostalgia than a truly next-generation A Link to the Past."
