The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (LBW) is the first original adventure to be released in the Zelda series since Skyward Sword in 2011. In the official timeline, the events in the game unfold after the event of Link’s Awakening, but for all intents and purposes it’s basically a sequel to A Link to the Past. LBW replicates the style of the aforementioned game perfectly in 3D; from the music, to the enemies, and to the environments. Even the world map closely resembles the original Hyrule from the beloved SNES title with only a few minor tweaks.
As per the usual Zelda formula, the game requires the protagonist, Link, to save Hyrule’s beloved Princess Zelda. She has unfortunately been turned into a painting by the evil wizard Yuga. When Yuga attempts to turn Link into a painting and abandon him, he is able to resist the magic and return from the wall thanks to a bracelet given to him by the mysterious salesman Ravio. Using his new found ability Link can merge himself into walls and move around as a mural to solve puzzles and travel to the mirror realm of Lorule to save the Princess Zelda from Yuga’s evil cluthes.
