Aonuma: New 3DS Zelda will have light and dark world

Jordan Mallory

Nintendo's 3DS sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past will, like the original, feature both light and dark worlds, according to a CNet interview with franchise veteran Eiji Aonuma. How this mechanism works has yet to be revealed – no indication of it was present during our time with the game two weeks ago.

Aonuma also referenced the Phantom Gannon encounter from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as inspiration for Link's new two-dimensional abilities, which allow him to phase into flat surfaces to solve environmental puzzles as an adorable hieroglyph. Which, of course, is not to be confused with an adorable hippogryph – no hippogryph-related announcements have been made as far as we are aware.
