The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

released on Nov 22, 2013

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the first Zelda game made exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. It is an indirect sequel to A Link to the Past with the same version of Hyrule but with new characters and gameplay elements. Unlike the series' tradition, many areas of the world are accessible from the beginning of the game and the dungeons can be visited in any order. Puzzles are encountered not only in dungeons but also in the open world, a part of them revolves around the game's 3D visual effect. The 3DS touch-screen display shows the world, dungeon or map depending on where you are.

My first ever Zelda game and it was beautiful. Visually stunning. Gorgeous artwork. At times, genuinely terrifying.

Great game. One of the best on the 3DS and my personal favorite Zelda game.

one of my first and still my favorite zelda. I think i 100% this game two times

I've heard this called the best 2D Zelda, and while I haven't played many other 2D Zelda games, this IS a top-notch game. The nonlinear approach works very well, the story is compelling, and there are some excellent dungeon puzzles.

Despite not caring for ALttP I really enjoyed this game and thought it was extremely fun to play with a good story and dungeons! It's the only Zelda game I've done a challenge run on where I played master mode 3 heart containers and didn't buy any items, only renting them when absolutely necessary to progress and then dying to lose them afterwards.
