I have been on a bit of a game purchasing fest recently and I had the opportunity to buy a digital copy (as opposed to a physical copy) of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for AU$45 which seemed to be a good deal given that the RRP for physical copies is around AU$60.
This is my first digital game download for the Nintendo 3DS but I am not expecting the experience to be any different aside from not having to swap cartridges in order to play the game.
I’ve been a big fan of the Zelda series going all the way back to the original version for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Ocarina of Time for N64 and Windwaker for Wii. However, this latest installment of the Zelda series borrows quite a bit from the Super NES version, A Link to the Past. If you’ve played this version you may feel some nostalgia kick in from the beginning but don’t let that fool you into thinking that you’re in for the same game but in 3D.
Prepare yourself for all new puzzles and challenges as well as adventuring into “Lorule” (the bizarro world version of Hyrule). You may remember the light and dark worlds in A Link to the Past requiring the magic mirror to get you back into the light world. I’m yet to discover how you warp between both worlds though.
Anyway, stay tuned as I battle my way through this game and I’ll share my thoughts!
