Upcoming sequel set "far in the future," features new Link.

In The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Link will adventure across two worlds. In the world Link lives in, the franchise’s iconic Triforce exists. In the game’s logo, you’ll see a second, shadowy Triforce, suggesting another exists in “The Other World.”

A Link Between Worlds, a sequel to Super Nintendo’s A Link to the Past, is set “far in the future,” according to Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata, which means that its main character is “not the same Link” from that of its predecessor.

The game is due out for 3DS this November.

    “Far in the future” tells me that their society does not advance technologically very much. lol

      if anything the farther into the future you go, the worse things get in the downfall timeline, SS had robots, ROBOTS, while ALttP has…

      umm

  • SuperLuigi

    Yo dog I heard you like triforce so we put a triforce in your triforce so you can courage while you courage.

    • KingNigma

      2 triforces? So would they be called a biforce or hexaforce?

      • SuperLuigi

        *mind explodes*

    GENIUS! How do they come up with this stuff!

    Seriously though, game looks great.

    Legend of Zelda time line sound fuck up

    • Zackasaur

      Ha, there has never really been a timeline. Fan conspiracies invented dozens of them, and Nintendo fed the flames with one they chose from the pile (one which isn’t as popular as some others amongst fans anyway).

      The truth is that, while the entries are loosely connected with familiar elements and some direct sequels, like Final Fantasy, the games are separate.

      • McPoo

        Yeah this is how I see it. They were all loosely connected, but fans insisted on applying a time line to them. For the Zelda compendium book thing they’ve just connected the dots as best they can.

      • Ryan Haynes

        Hyrule Historia, I suggest you look it up.

    • Claude

      Timeline is pretty easy and straightforward to follow as long as you keep in mind that OoT is where it goes crazy.

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Logically: Two worlds, two Triforces.

    “is set “far in the future,” according to Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata, which means that its main character is “not the same Link” from that of its predecessor.”

    So it’s not a sequel then. It’s just next in the timeline. Has nothing to do with LttP. Aside from potentially reusing the base LttP world map of the game to be lazy.
