A Link Between Worlds remixes the past (2D-X)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds poses an interesting question: Can you make a sequel to one of the greatest games ever made, 22 years after the fact? Make no mistake, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is an ur-game. Every Zelda title since has pretty much been a remake or remix of it. A Link Between Worlds appears to take that idea to its logical conclusion by actually remaking the Super Nintendo classic, in so far that it re-uses the original overworld of A Link to the Past, and by mixing in new dungeons, abilities, and blobby 3D graphics as opposed to crisp 2D sprites. (3DS, Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds)
