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."

The story is too old to be commented.

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.

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.

No, Nintendo said this game would have the same overworld as LttP.
