Journey back to the world of A Link to the Past.

A new The Legend of Zelda game will be coming out this holiday season for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime announced during the Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct.

The new Zelda game will seem familiar to long time fans because it is set in the world of Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Originally released in 1992 for the SNES, A Link to the Past blended the traditional Zelda gameplay with a light and dark world mechanic for added depth. Now 20 years later, Nintendo will revisit this specific time period in the Zelda timeline on the 3DS.

[adsense250itp]New gameplay mechanics in the new Zelda will utilize the 3DS’ 3-D capabilities to add depth to dungeons. Players will use 3D to solve puzzles and fight enemies. Fils-Aime stated that the goal was to add new life to the originally flat 2-D world of A Link to the Past. This goal will add a new level of height,  volume and depth to the series that only the 3DS can bring to life.

Fils-Aime revealed that despite being set in the world of A Link to the Past, it will not be a remake. The game will feature an original storyline and brand new dungeons that will take advantage of the new gameplay mechanics. Additionally, a new tool that Link will use in dungeons was revealed. In this new game, Link can transform into a drawing that changes the game’s perspective and allows players to see things they previously could not see. It will add another layer to gameplay and allow Nintendo to craft unique puzzles with it.

Link will use the 3D of the 3DS to take advantage of the depth the system provides to solve puzzles.

To show off the 3-D specific visuals of the new The Legend of Zelda game, Nintendo has released a 3D trailer currently available on the 3DS eShop.

Nintendo will also bring two older Zelda classics to the 3DS eShop next month. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons will be available May 30.

Capcom developed the two Gameboy Color classics. The two titles were developed to be played together, with each game opening up secrets the another. They could be played in any order. However, to reach the final boss, gamers need to complete both and link the games together. Nintendo did not reveal pricing information for these two games.

The Zelda titles will mark a Link-heavy year for Nintendo as they join the previously announced The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.

Nintendo fans can expect a Zelda-centric holiday this year.
