So is this the same Link from the original title, or a brand new Link?
Nintendo has announced many details for the upcoming 3DS title The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
It’s said that this game will have the same setting as A Link to the Past, but the alternate world will be completely brand new. While Nintendo never referred to this alternate world as Dark World, but they did hint the existence of another Triforce.
Also, it turns out while being a sequel, A Link Between Worlds actually takes place generations after A Link to the Past and we’re getting a new, younger Link. It means that this will be the latest game in the Downfall Timeline, after The Adventure of Link.
